Celebrating New England's Natural Beauty — Granby Land Trust Juried Art Show
Lost Acres Vineyard • 80 Lost Acres Road, North Granby, CT

Beginning on Thursday, October 27, the Granby Land Trust — in partnership with the Granby Artists Association — will present a juried art show, Celebrating New England's Natural Beauty, at the Lost Acres Vineyard in North Granby. This show will feature original work (painted, drawn, photographed or 3-D) that highlights the natural beauty of New England. All genres of visual art are encouraged, including but not limited to landscapes, botanicals, still-lifes, portraits, and abstract art. Artists are asked to identify 1) the property that inspired their work; and 2) the town and state in which the property is located. All works will be juried for entry and awards. Some awards carry stipulations. (For example, to be considered for the Granby Land Trust Award the work must be inspired by a Granby Land Trust property.)


Artist's prospectus for juried exhibit available here

Full details are at the Granby Land Trust website.

Please forward this information to any artist colleagues who may be interested in submitting their work. Thank you.
