Local artists invited to submit works for Art of the Land juried show in November
Local artists and artisans are invited to submit works inspired by the local landscape for The Land Conservancy of McHenry County's 13th annual Art of the Land art show and fundraiser. The event takes place in person Nov. 19-20 from 6:30-10 p.m. at the Starline Factory in Harvard.
Since 2009, Art of the Land has raised over $150,000 to support TLC's land preservation work in McHenry County. Thirty percent of the proceeds from art sold is retained by the The Land Conservancy of McHenry County.
Artists' work must be consistent with the theme of "art that reflects and is inspired by the local landscape and all that it provides."
Accepted mediums include original artwork, painting, drawing and other hanging art, photography, limited edition prints, ceramics, glass, sculptural pieces, basketry, fiber, paper, metal and wood.
The Best of Show award is $250 while second and third place are $100 each.
There is a jury fee of $25 to submit up to five pieces of work as an artist. Artwork will be judged based on the best representation of the theme of the event. Entries will be selected from digital images sent to TLC, and all entries must be for sale at the show. There is no fee for artisans to apply to the show.
The deadline to submit work is Sunday, Oct. 10. Entries timestamped after this date will not be accepted into the show.
