CALL FOR ARTISTS: Art in the Gardens 2018 - Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens
We are now accepting applications for Art in the Gardens 2018! This celebration of creative expression, gorgeous gardens, music, beer, wine, and food attracts as many as 1,500 visitors each year. Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens invites artists (open to all art mediums) to submit an application to exhibit their original work at the 26th Art in the Gardens held on Saturday, August 4 from 11AM to 5PM. Applications for this juried fine arts event will be accepted now through April 13, 2018. Jurying will take place at the end of April and we will send notifications shortly after.
Artist booths are framed by our 47 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens providing a unique and natural setting to display and sell art. Displaying your work amongst the summertime blooms of the Gardens is just one of the perks of participating in Art in the Gardens… Last year alone, more than $78,000 was spent on artwork at the event—including the featured artwork at a price-point of $30,500. Additionally, Gardens staff and volunteers are available to assist you in setting up and taking down your display and provide relief at your booth any time you need a break. Additionally, Friends of the Gardens provides a complimentary breakfast the morning of the event. Don’t miss this ideal opportunity to meet new clientele!
While there is a non-refundable jury fee of $20, there is no booth fee. We work with a central cashiering system freeing you from having to handle cash and compute tax. A 30% commission will be taken from all artists’ sales. The commission will directly benefit the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and our mission to engage and enrich lives by displaying and conserving plants in harmony with our Northern California coastal ecosystems.
To be considered in the jury process please complete and submit the application by April 13, 2018.
