Simply Elemental 2021

Call For Artists!

Simply Elemental 2021 is the HHG's annual outdoor art exhibit integrated along the garden paths, plantings, and trees within the Garden.

Artists, groups of artists, art teachers, and students working in any media are invited to submit a proposal with a conceptual design for consideration by a jury. Because this is an exhibit of relatively short duration, materials used in the pieces can be non-permanent but need to hold up for a minimum of 8 weeks.

Deadline for Submission: April 15th, 2021

Submission Review by HHG Art Committee: April 15th- May 1st

Artists Notified: May 1st

Installation: The week of July 26th (installs to be scheduled for social distancing)

Show dates: August 1 - Sept 30, 2021

Award: A prize will be awarded for the Best in Show, as determined by a Judging Committee. This will be the first year that a Best in Show Award is given.

Pieces in the exhibit will be selected using the following guidelines:

  • Uses the garden setting to advantage
  • Makes a strong visual impact
  • Non-harmful to the horticulture garden and its plants
  • Appropriate to a family-friendly setting
  • Requires no maintenance during the exhibit
  • Installed in a secure manner
  • Safe for the public
  • Leaves no permanent impact on the garden
