Call for Art: Artists and the Earth


“Artists and the Earth ”

Saturday, March 16th -  Friday, May 31st  

at The Sower Gallery

In honor of Earth Day 2019, the Sower Gallery will open a new exhibit “Artists and the Earth” on Saturday, March 16th. This show will feature art of all media, showing the beauty of our earth – landscapes, plant life, water, air, wildlife, etc. “Artists and the Earth” will be juried by Minnesota-artist Ellen Sweetman. Sweetman has worked in most media, but finds oil painting to be her love. Whether still life, landscapes, portrait or floral subjects, oil painting was the way of collecting experiences and memories, investigating them, and putting them in fixed forms for the viewer to explore in turn.
