We are now accepting applications for Art in the Gardens 2019! This celebration of creative expression, gorgeous gardens, music, beer, wine, and food attracts as many as 1,500 visitors each year. Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens invites artists (open to all art mediums) to submit an application to exhibit their original work at the 27th Art in the Gardens held on Saturday, August 3 from 12PM to 5PM. Applications for this juried fine arts event will be accepted now through March 15, 2019. Jurying will take place following the deadline and we will send notifications by mid-April.
Artist booths are framed by our 47 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens providing a unique and natural setting to display and sell art. Displaying your work amongst the summertime blooms of the Gardens is just one of the perks of participating in Art in the Gardens. Additionally, Gardens staff and volunteers are available to assist you in setting up and taking down your display and provide relief at your booth any time you need a break. Additionally, Friends of the Gardens provides a complimentary breakfast the morning of the event. Don’t miss this ideal opportunity to meet new clientele!
While there is a non-refundable jury fee of $30, there is no booth fee. We work with a central cashiering system freeing you from having to handle cash and compute tax. A 25% commission will be taken from all artists’ sales. The commission will directly benefit the Mendocino Coast Botanical 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 and submit the application by March 15, 2019.
Please help us in our call for artists by asking your creative community to apply!
