Artist Open Call for 2018
Conservatory Art Displays
The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory will hold an open call for artist submissions for the 2018 exhibit year, July 17-28, 2017. Artists may hang their work for display in the Conservatory’s public space for a two-month period, Jan-Feb, Mar-Apr, 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 with digital samples of your work. The Conservatory prefers art that ties in with its mission and themes; displayed work must be of high quality, family-friendly in subject, and ready to hang. Artists may drop off or mail CDs to the attention of Program Department, Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun Street, Fort Wayne, Indiana, 46802. Artists will be announced on the Conservatory’s web site in August. Please call (260) 427-6440 or visit www.botanicalconservatory.org for additional information.
