MUTTS LIKE ME September 2-October 30, 2019

“A lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me.” Barack Obama

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Pet month in October, The Rowan Tree Gallery calls for art for a juried group show of art depicting dogs. Whether playing, cuddling, or protecting, dogs are our companions, friends, and helpers. Send me your works of art that depict the special relationship we have with dogs, the simple beauty of dogs, their playfulness, and the importance of dogs in our society and world.

All two dimensional works, including oil and acrylic painting, watercolor, pastels, drawings, mixed media, and photography will be considered. All work must be presented appropriately for a fine art gallery. Photographs must be matted and framed behind glass, printed onto canvas, or mounted. Oil and acrylic paintings must be framed or gallery wrap painted. Watercolors and pastels must be framed behind glass. All work must have wire on back for hanging. Pieces may be rejected if not properly presented when received by the gallery.

There will be an opening reception with the artists on September 6, 2019 from 5-8 p.m.

Please submit:

1. Up to three (3) jpegs of your work named with your full name (last name first) and the title of the piece (for example: “Doe, Jane – Cold Wet Nose”). Please put the name of the show in the subject line of the email.

2. A list of the pieces you are submitting that includes the title, dimensions, media, year created, and price.

3. An artist bio and brief statement about the works you are submitting to: Please include your telephone number, email address, and website address.

The Rowan Tree Gallery takes a 40% commission on pieces sold and asks for a $10 hanging fee for each accepted piece.

If you are mailing your art, please provide a return label and pre-paid postage for returning the art at the end of the show.
