Culture & Agriculture is open to all artists over the age of 18, working in both two and three dimensional media, who create art that in some way draws its inspiration from agricultural heritage and/or contemporary agriculture. That inspiration may include (but is not limited to) depictions of rural landscape, farm animals, farm products, rural life, or art that in a more abstract way deals with issues and ideas related to agriculture.
Artists working in media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, fine crafts (such as ceramics or glass), batik, metals, fiber, photography, etc. are all encouraged to enter. All styles of work are considered. Works shown in previous exhibits at New Visions Gallery will not be accepted.
Selection will be made from digital images. Artists should submit images and information for the actual work they propose to exhibit by the due date via the online Artist Entry Form. There is no entry fee.
Work need not be for sale to be eligible for the exhibit. The gallery will make every effort to encourage the sale of work available for purchase and will retain a 35% commission of sales made as a result of the exhibit.
Works for the exhibition will be selected by a panel of jurors. Decision of the group regarding acceptance into the exhibit is final.

SHIPPING & RECEIVING
Artists are responsible for dropping off/picking up work or shipping to and from the gallery. Return shipping and shipping insurance is the responsibility of the artist. The gallery will pack the work in the same crate in which it was received; make sure your packaging can survive two shipments. If your work has special packaging requirements, include detailed instructions in the crate. Please refrain from gluing shipping materials and from using packing peanuts. As we are not a pickup point for UPS, all return shipping must be in the form of either a prepaid Federal Express or US Mail return label.
Marshfield Clinic will provide insurance for work upon arrival and inspection, until release of work to return shipper.
