CALL FOR ENTRIES
Botanical Artists for Education and the Environment (BAEE), a group of botanical artists primarily in the Mid-Atlantic area of the US, have undertaken a project to publish a book of paintings about native plants. Because the destruction of native plants continues at an alarming rate, we hope our book will increase the public's knowledge and encourage use and conservation of this vital part of our natural heritage.
Submission: January 1, 2013. Entry fee: $25 for up to 5 paintings (only 3 will be selected for the book).
Chris Sanders's work will appear in two upcoming exhibits: Riverwinds Gallery in Beacon, NY April 14th - May 6. (Featured Artist)
Becky Uhler's watercolors original and prints of native plant and animal life are on exhibit through June 24, 2012 in The Art of Nature at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History, University of Oregon, Eugene OR. Check out Becky's website.
The workshop will be held June 22 through 26 at the Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, Montana, within the Flathead Indian Reservation.
This unique workshop, taught by artist and educator Linda M. Feltner, will provide an immersion into the people and environment of the Flathead Reservation. Interpreting the land, people, geography, flora, and fauna of an area is an assignment that any illustrator may encounter. We will discover the breadth of human history and native landscape and explore the means to capture its essence in interpretive illustrations.
Participants will be guided through the process of planning and developing a large scale project as if it were a contracted project or work assignment for a mural, magazine or book illustration, a museum or park interpretive display, a painting series, or any other potential project for a client. Participants will learn how to research, plan, and design an end product.
