Call for Entries: Winging It! Art Exhibition Mar. 1 - Apr. 16, 2018

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is planning a group exhibition of artwork depicting birds and bugs.

Artists who are Trail Conference members may submit digital images of up to three artworks for an entry fee of $15.  Non-members will pay an entry fee of $25. Work must be framed and ready for hanging.

All two dimensional work will be considered, including photography. Please submit only works that have not been shown in the Trail Conference Gallery previously. The exhibition, at the Trail Conference Headquarters, 600 Ramapo Valley Road, Mahwah, NJ, will run from June 7 to August 28, 2018.

Submission Deadline: Monday, April 16

After you submit payment, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for submitting your images. Notification of results will be emailed on or after April 20, 2018. Accepted artwork must be delivered to the Trail Conference during business hours June 4, 5, and 6. We are sorry, but we do not have the capability to handle shipped artwork.

The show will be juried and prizes will be awarded at the June 28th reception.  Our generous corporate sponsors, Dick Blick Art Materials of Paramus. and Wild Birds Unlimited of Paramus, will be providing the prizes.

Accepted works may be offered for sale. The Trail Conference Art Gallery, while new, has a respectable record of sales. 20% of any sale, along with the show entry fee, will benefit the excellent work and programs of the Trail Conference. Unsold artwork must be picked up between August 29 and 31.

Our previous group shows have featured an invigorating mix of professional artists and photographers, as well as first-time exhibitors. We invite you to be a part of it!
