Call for Exhibits: Plants, Birds & Pollinators-Art Serving Science

The Denver Botanic Gardens and the GNSI are pleased to announce a premier juried exhibition opportunity for GNSI members only, highlighting the subject matter of plants, birds, and pollinators. Subjects may include plants only or animals only (birds, mammals, insects, reptiles & amphibians, etc), but judging weight will be given to images that emphasize plants and their relationships with their pollinators.

Original art only (includes prints of digital works) in 2- or 3-dimensions. Jurying emphasis will be on both artistic excellence and scientific accuracy.

The GNSI is excited to co-host this excellent opportunity for our members to showcase (and maybe sell!) their work to a wide audience in a superb venue. Start planning a submission now!
