“Root to Bloom: Places Artists Call Home” will feature paintings representative of where the featured artists call “home.” This theme can be applied to a range of views, from a studio interior to a street scene, from a rural landscape to an aerial view of city or countryside—just to name a few examples. This flexibility also applies to the time in your (the artist’s) life: whether the painting depicts the location of your birth, somewhere you spent a considerable amount of time, or the locale where you currently live, all of these options you are welcome to choose from for your subject matter.
We are pleased to announce that one of our “hometown” legends here in the DC area, renowned artist Teresa Oaxaca, will act as a juror for this exhibition.
Note: All art must be for sale. By entering work in this show, you the artist agree to allow Principle Gallery to use images of the selected artworks for promotional purposes and on our website.
This exhibition will be comprised of between 30 and 40 works, depending on the size of the selected pieces. An individual artist may have up to two pieces accepted.
To be accepted, the work must be a painting (no photography, drawing, 3 dimensional, etc.) and must measure, unframed, no more than 40 inches along the longest edge. Work must be sent framed and ready to hang. Artists will be responsible for paying for round-trip shipping and are required to include a pre-paid return-shipping label with their piece.
Entry Fees: $30 for 3 pieces and $5 for each additional piece
