We received an Invitation from the Theodore Payne Foundation (TPF) for a BAGSC Show in 2014, which will require us to work in “Fast Track Mode.” This wonderful new opportunity will showcase our California native artwork, and be titled:
“Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California, the Art and Science of Native Plants”
The juried show will open on January 11, 2014, and go into March 2014. (Exact closing date to be determined.)
Entry deadline is November 30, 2013 when entry forms and scans or photos are due. (Instructions on where and how to send entries will be sent out later.)
Details are being worked out, but there is not a lot of time between now and the entry deadline, so we should be painting now. Each artist will be allowed a maximum of two works, no larger than 16″ w x 20″ l, featuring California natives and their pollinators (if you would like to include them).
The BAGSC entry fee will be $25.00, due prior to November 30, 2013.
All submissions must have the correct scientific binomial identification, which will be verified by Lily Singer at the Theodore Payne Foundation (TPF). All California natives and their pollinators are welcome, but, if you need specimens, you may go to TPF in Sun Valley to find plants to draw on their grounds, or purchase in their nursery. You can also speak to Lily if you need a cutting, which they may be able to provide.
