We are now accepting applications for Art in the Gardens, a juried fine arts event and fundraiser. This celebration of creative expression, gorgeous gardens, music, beer, wine, and food attracts more than 1,500 guests each year. Applications will be accepted now through April 13th. Don’t miss this ideal opportunity to meet new clientele!
Displaying your work amongst the summertime blooms is just one of the perks of participating in Art in the Gardens. Last year alone, more than $78,000 was spent on artwork at the event—including the featured artwork at a price-point of $30,500. Because you and your work are the keystone of the event, we try to help out as much as possible. Gardens staff and volunteers are available to assist in the set-up and take-down of your display and provide relief at your booth when you need a break. Additionally, Friends of the Gardens provides an ample complimentary breakfast the morning of the event.
While there is a non-refundable jury fee of $20, there is no booth fee. We work with a central cashiering system freeing you from having to handle cash and compute tax. A 30% commission will be taken from all artists’ sales. The commission will directly benefit the Gardens and our mission to engage and enrich lives by displaying and conserving plants in harmony with our Northern California coastal ecosystems.
To be considered in the jury process please complete the enclosed application and return it by mail along with the jury fee and five photographs of your current work. You may also apply online at www.gardenbythesea.org/AIG. Please help us in our call for artists by asking your creative community to apply. The deadline to submit applications is April 13, 2018.
We hope you will join us on August 4th and look forward to hearing from you soon!
