Call for Entries for the Green Man Festival

The Green Man Festival is calling for entries for its T-shirt design, and for its display in a New Deal Café exhibit.

Call for Entries for the Green Man Festival T-shirt!

Open to visual artists and poets of all ages.

Each year the Green Man Festival has selected an image of the Green Man and a poem about our relationship with nature to create the posters, ads and T-shirts for the event.

This year's festival theme is "Finding Common Ground" and we invite all of you to tap into the memories of gardens and wild places you have known to create  your own image of the Green Man as a portrait or as a poem, or both. All T-shirt entries will be considered for the Green Man exhibit at the New Deal Café during the month of May and June. Submit digital files to greenbeltgreen_man@live.com or by mail to:

Attn: Green Man Festival
PO Box 1841
Greenbelt, MD 20768-1841

All art and poetry must be submitted by April 5, to be considered for use this  year. All submissions will be displayed at the festival and will be considered for the Green Man exhibit at the New Deal Café. If your work is selected for the  T-shirt you will receive 2 FREE shirts!

Green Man Festival Art Show Call for Entries

Visual artists, poets and writers of all ages are invited to submit art entries for a two-month long Green Man Festival exhibit at the New Deal Café during May and June, 2012. This year's theme of "Celebrating Our Common Ground, the Gardens From Where Life Springs!" asks you to connect your senses and imagination to the natural world that is all around us. It asks you to share what you see, feel, hear, taste, smell and simply connect with in the undeveloped spaces around the back yard, at the edge of forests, along creeks and riverbanks  or beside a lake — wherever the Green Man may be. For the exhibit you may submit paintings, drawings, collages, photos, constructions, sculpture, fabric, glass, pottery and any handmade art or craft item that expresses the love of nature.

Instructions for submitting art:

All wall art must be ready to hang (framed and secured by wire). Include title, price if being offered for sale, and contact information for the buyer. A display case is available for 3 dimensional pieces no larger than 10" x 10". Please help us plan. Contact us and tell us what you plan to bring at greenbeltgreen_man@live.com.

The exhibit schedule is: Drop off — Monday May 7, 6 - 8 p.m.
Reception — Sunday, June 3, 7 - 9 p.m.
Pick up — Monday, July 2, 6 - 8 p.m.

The exhibit will be displayed at:

Greenbelt, MD 20770
