Artist Open Call for 2020 Art Displays

The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory will hold an open call for artist submissions for the 2020 exhibit year, July 16-28, 2019. Artists may hang their work for display in the Conservatory’s public space for a two-month period, Jan-Feb, Mar-April, Sept-Oct, or Nov-Dec. There is no exhibitor’s fee, but a commission on sales applies. The Conservatory hosts a public reception for the artist on a Sunday afternoon near the start of the show. To be considered, submit a CD or flash drive with digital samples of your work. The Conservatory would like to see art that ties in with its mission; displayed work must be of high quality, family-friendly in subject, and ready to hang. Artists may drop off or mail submissions to Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun Street, Fort Wayne, Indiana, 46802. Artists will be announced on the Conservatory’s website in September. Please visit or call 427-6440 for additional information.
