VISIONS OF THE VERDE

A juried art exhibition. Call for artists.

Friends of the Verde River, in partnership

with Yavapai College Verde Art Gallery, and the AZ Humanities Smithsonian Waterways Exhibit, invite artists from across Arizona to submit art about the Verde River Watershed for a juried art exhibit.

“Visions of the Verde” is an all media juried visual art exhibition that will feature artworks that depict, address, celebrate or are otherwise

influenced by the Verde Watershed. We invite all explorations & interpretations of this theme and encourage all media, styles, and techniques.

ELIGIBILITY

Art in all media created in the last two years by artists who currently live in Arizona will be

accepted. All concepts and subject matter related to the Verde Watershed are welcome. All art should be ready for installation at the time of delivery. Artists whose work requires the use of electronic equipment (DVD players, projectors, computers, etc.) will provide their own equipment.

Some equipment is available but must be confirmed with the gallery prior to acceptance.

Artists are responsible for the transportation of their works and their removal after the show closes. 

SUBMITTING ENTRIES

An entry fee is not required. The Jurors will review digital images of completed artwork and will select pieces for the exhibition. Unfinished artwork will not be reviewed.

Artists may submit up to three works of art for consideration.

All artwork submitted and exhibited in the “VISIONS OF THE VERDE” exhibition must be completely the applicant’s original idea and creation. Art that infringes on intellectual property rights will be disqualified.
