Art Programs

Great Hollow supports the expression and representation of nature in the visual arts. We do this by hosting art shows and technical workshops, and providing a forum through which nature artists and art enthusiasts from our local communities can come together.  Great Hollow also has an active Photographers Club, which uses nature photography to support the educational and conservation missions of Great Hollow, and leads many art events and programs. Please check our Events calendar for any upcoming art programs.



Call for Artists for the 2020 Juried Painting and Photography Show is now open. Artists, please click here for information on how to submit your work.
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, the show will be a virtual show. The decision to hold a physical show is postponed. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2020.  Applicants will be notified of which artworks are accepted by April 25,2020, application fees are due May 5, 2020 and the virtual show will go live online on May 15, 2020.

Given that entrees are all digital, we are continuing to urge artists to submit by the deadline and participate in this virtual show.  “We are all hunkering down due to the COVID-19 virus” says chair Linda T Hubbard.  “But what a great time to create art.  Painters – grab your brushes, paints and canvas!  Photographers – grab your camera and capture some early signs of spring or edit your existing photos!  Take advantage of this quiet time to create art.”

Artists are invited to submit up to four (4) digital images of 2-dimensional work for the competition (media includes photographs, paintings, collage, and drawings). There is no cost to submit. Since this is now a virtual show, the $15 hanging fee for each accepted work is reduced to $10 per artwork.  The Great Hollow Photographers Club will retain a 25% commission on all works sold at the show.   This is a fundraiser to support Great Hollow Nature Preserve’s mission of environmental education, research, and conservation, so all works must be for sale.

The subject of all the works must be of nature found within Great Hollow Nature Preserve or the surrounding area. Deadline for submissions is Midnight on Wednesday,  April 15, 2020.
