Out on a Limb

The theme of this exhibition will be trees, inviting artists to portray one of the planet’s most important and beautiful resources. We encourage artists to seek out trees in any season and depict whatever aspect of them they find most engaging and inspiring whether the entire tree, a leaf, branch, fruit, flower or seed.

This exhibition explores two branches of the same tree. The first is the Botanical Art Branch. Artists are invited to engage in the traditional art of creating botanically accurate 2-D portrayals of trees in hand applied media. The second branch of this call is the Open Media Branch: botanically inspired 2D or 3D pieces depicting tree subjects or created from materials derived from trees (wood, bark, etc.).

This exhibition will be hung in conjunction with Out of the Woods – Celebrating Trees in Public Gardens, The New York Botanical Garden Third Triennial, an international juried travelling exhibition of artwork by members of the American Society of Botanical Artists. All works in this exhibition depict specimen trees among the living collections of botanical gardens and arboreta around the world.
