Mediums: All mediums are accepted except still life photography. We are always looking for a diversity of mediums including but not limited to watercolor, oil, collage, quilting, carving, assemblage, stained glass, etching, handmade paper, seed mosaic, plant material collage, wood-burning, metalwork, clothing, and functional pottery. Photographic images may be used if they are an element (less than 50%) of the work.
Submissions: Submit two images of pieces from your existing works that you feel best represent your style, and reflect the level of work that you would plan to produce for the commission. These do not need to be garden-related. We are looking at your work- originality, craftsmanship, composition, medium, consistency, not necessarily the subject.
Questions: Due to the number of submissions, we do not have time to respond individually to questions. Please do your best to follow our submission guidelines. We’ve made them as simple as possible. If you have any technical issues with using the Submission Form (link below) please send an email to [email protected]. Semi-finalists will be contacted in late March or early April. We do our best to notify all applicants of their status, however this process can take some time.
The winning artists receive: An Art Pack featuring your work, $400, 10 Art Packs, a percentage of sales of your fine art print, 50% off seed purchases, inclusion in the pack art gallery show, your name on the pack, link on hudsonvalleyseed.com, ‘meet the artist’ blog post and subscriber newsletter, seedy satisfaction, and green garden love.
Thank you for offering your creativity to the Hudson Valley Seed Company!
