“In Layers: The Art of the Egg ”: Call to Artists from the Birds of Vermont Museum

Be part of our 2016 eggs-hibition! Do you create? Do you have a thing for birds, science, or conservation? We do too.

The Birds of Vermont Museum seeks art and craft that focus on the beauty, biology, and essence of eggs for our 2016 season Art Exhibit, In Layers: The Art of the Egg. We’re hoping to hatch feelings of passion, delight, commitment, and discovery with this art (watch for additional activities and displays about oology during the season as well).

The show runs from May 1 to October 31 in the Museum’s multi-purpose room, halls, and foyer. Most art will be hung on the walls. We have shelf space for three-dimensional works and some ceiling space if your work is suitable there. Feel free to visit and scope out the options! We are open to all sorts of media and we strive, in choosing works, for a harmonious variety.

You may submit up to 3 works, by sending not more than three (3) .jpgs showing your work to museum@birdsofvermont.org ; please put “Submission for In Layers: The Art of the Egg” in the email subject line. If you do not have email, you may send up to three prints to the Museum, attention In Layers Art. Please include your contact information and a description of of the work (media, artwork size, when made, etc.).

Entries are due by March 22, 2016.

Museum staff will select pieces by March 29 and will let artists know by email if possible. We are looking to show and celebrate work from both new and returning artists. The Museum asks for permission to reproduce images of the selected works in print and online as part of publicity for the exhibit; if you prefer partial or cropped images for this, or have preferred images, please tell us or supply them.

Selected pieces should arrive at the Museum during the first weeks of April and be ready to hang (if applicable). Artists are responsible for shipping, or drop-off/pick-up. Pick-up should occur by November 30, 2016.

Artists who show their work here are invited to sell originals, prints, and/or cards through us (on consignment). We are happy to arrange artist workshops at the Museum with our exhibitors!

Please call or email Kir Talmage or Allison Gergely with any questions. We can be reached at 802 434-2167 or museum@birdsofvermont.org.

We look forward to see how you eggs-press yourself!
