View, a multi-arts center located in Old Forge, has announced the call for entry for Branches, Brambles, and Roots: An Exhibition Celebrating Trees.
Trees provide shelter, building materials, shade, food, warmth, a place to sit or nest, a place to climb, play, and more. They have been celebrated, venerated, feared, worshipped, and cut down.
View is seeking artists for an all media, juried exhibition, that explores all aspects of trees in art, from raw material to inspiration and everything in between.
The exhibition is open to all media, for artists 18 and over, with a chance at over $3,000 in prizes.
Judging the exhibition is Bob Erickson, Professor Emeriti of Printmaking at University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and Michael Trivieri, Tupper Lake based wood artist.
The deadline to apply is Monday, May 2nd, 2016. For a full prospectus and to apply, visit the Branches, Brambles, and Roots: An Exhibition Celebrating Trees exhibition page.
