Firmly Rooted:  a juried exhibition addressing our ongoing symbiotic relationship with plants.

 Juror, Douglas Stapleton, Assistant Curator of Art with the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery, selected 27 finalist  from over 325 images, submitted from across the US, Canada and Asia to be represented in Firmly Rooted.

Regarding his selections, Mr. Stapleton states:  “I selected works that spoke to our relationship to the green, growing world with a distinct voice.  I looked for a range of approaches and materials that mirrored that visual complexity of the botanical world…And finally, I looked for works where artists revel the verdant jumble of the natural world and search for pattern and form in the chaos.”

A First Prize award of $500 and three $100 Honorable Mentions will be presented at the Gallery Hop on November 16th.  A People’s Choice Award will be presented at the end of the exhibition where winning artist receives money collected from votes placed at $1 each.
