Opportunity: Art of the Garden



Visual artists of all mediums are invited to submit their work to Art of the Garden: a group show of 150 artworks on the theme of gardens at the Haverford Township Free Library. This exhibit it part of the library’s fund-raising effort “Sowing the Seeds of a New Library," which requests that artists donate 20% of the purchase price of their artworks to the library’s upkeep.

Like many other libraries in Pennsylvania, Haverford Township Free Library has been severely affected in the last two years by a 33% budget cut totaling more than $300,000. As the township’s only library and an essential social hub to an active and cultured population of all age ranges, the library is the perfect gateway to a diverse new audience of collectors and viewers for local, national and international artists. The deadline for submissions is February 25, 2011.
