Keeping the Bees: The Importance of Pollinators

June 16 – July 28, 2019

Over 75% of the flowering plants on earth rely on animals and insects for pollination, including nearly 75% of our food crops. Without these creatures such as hummingbirds, bats, bees, beetles, butterflies, and flies, these plants would not be able to produce fruits and seeds, which would be devastating to people and the planet. Join Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods in bringing attention to the importance and plight of the pollinator in this group art exhibition. We are accepting work in all visual media and styles that feature or are in some way related to pollinators. See below for online resources for more information on pollinators.

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2019

Artist Notification: May 17, 2019

Exhibition: Sunday, June 16 (opening reception 1-3pm) to Sunday, July 28, 2019

Submission:

Artists wishing to apply should email up to three images of examples of the work they intend to enter to: info@brushwoodcenter.org along with their contact info no later than May 15, 2019. If it is not immediately apparent how your work relates to pollinators, please also include a brief artist statement that explains the relation. There is no fee to apply or participate. Brushwood Center will retain 15% of all sales.
