CALL FOR OUTDOOR SCULPTURE
Artists are invited to submit artwork for Old Frog Pond Farm & Studio’s annual outdoor sculpture exhibit, Around the Pond and through the Woods. We are excited to announce that this year’s exhibit will be juried by Nick Capasso, Executive Director of the Fitchburg Art Museum. The exhibit will be from May 19 to October 14. The extended season for the exhibit will give more opportunity for visitors to see the work, and allow our ‘plein air poets’ to write poems inspired by the installations. A chapbook designed by Lynn Horsky and edited by Susan Edwards Richmond featuring the selected sculptures and poems will be available at our annual September Plein Air Poetry Walk. All poets and artists will receive a copy.
We invite artists to submit up to two works — either existing sculptures or proposals for site-specific work.
The submission period is January 10 - February 14, 2019
We encourage artists to visit prior to submitting. The landscape offers a diversity of habitats including field, forest, pond, and waterfall. Sculptures may be on the ground, floating, or suspended. Please discuss any questions about location with Linda Hoffman at email@example.com.
All work should be able to withstand the vagaries of our climate for the duration of the exhibit. The artist assumes responsibility for repairing or restoring an artwork in a timely manner if that becomes necessary.
Work does not need to be for sale, however, the farm requests a 25% donation on any works sold in the exhibit.
We ask that selected artists volunteer at the farm for one Sunday afternoon during the exhibit to greet visitors. We understand that this will not always be possible.
In submitting work, artists acknowledge Old Frog Pond Farm assumes no liability for artwork on the property during the exhibition.
The selected artists will be notified by March 1, 2019.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
