2020 Newport Flower Show Art Exhibit
Voices in the Garden Theme
New England Society of Botanical Artists has extended an invitation for any GNSI-NE Members in good standing (2020 dues paid) to be included in the Call For Entries for the 2020 Newport Flower Show which takes place at the Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island from Friday, June 19, 2020, through Sunday, June 21, 2020. The theme for this year’s show is Voices in the Garden and should provide plenty of inspiration for our members if they decide to answer the call.
Artists may enter more than one work. The artist is requested to specify the category for which each work is entered. No more than 6 works will be selected for each category, for a maximum of 24 works in the exhibit. Works may have been previously displayed but not at a Newport Flower Show. Any 2-dimensional, original media, but no photography or computer-generated work. No entry or installation fee.
Artists are encouraged to apply liberal interpretation to the categories while keeping in mind the venue and that the exhibit is part of a prestigious flower show. Each piece will be displayed in one of these 4 categories and should have at least one botanical element in the work.
