Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center invites emerging and established artists to submit original artworks to 'Breaking Ground: Art about the Earth'. All media will be considered, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, performance, glass, fiber, digital, photography, installation, mixed media, and new genres. All works must be made within the last four years. Artists must be 18 years or older. This exhibition will be open to the public from February 10 – April 23, 2023.
Art has long been a partner of natural science to document our experiences. Imagination and vision are required when responding to the challenges of our ever-changing environment due to climate change in urban and rural ecosystems. Annmarie invites artists to engage in our mission to connect art and nature by creatively visualizing the impacts of sustainability on our Earth. This show will feature works highlighting the fragility, ferocity, beauty, transformation, and stark realities induced by human behavior.
"No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it.”
