Work Requirements:

  • We are looking for work that is about the garden, flowers and horticultural imagery. Think images of farms, gardens and fields of flowers. Still lifes with flowers, plants, and vegetables and fruits are all encouraged too! If it is about plant life in depiction or design, its game. All 2D and 3D media welcome and it does not have to be realistic.

  • Work should fit within the theme of the show and needs to be up for the duration of the show.

  • Using photos as references for accuracy (like animal anatomy for example) taken by someone else is OK so long as the composition of the final artwork is of your creation and not of that photograph.

  • Any photos used for its composition, design etc must be taken by you and not by someone else on the internet, magazine or another artist (yes, even with permission).

  • Submitted work must have been made in the last 5 years. Work previously submitted in a TRA Show is fine as long as it had not received an award from TRA.


  • Receiving will be at the Old Hyde Park Art Center from 12-3PM on Saturday and Sunday on the dates listed above.

  • Need not be a TRA member or professional artist to enter. Students of all ages welcome to enter.

  • Limit is 3 works of art per artist. If one piece is over 40" in either dimension, it will count as 2 entries and then the limit will be 2. For example, an artist can submit one 48" X 30" piece and one piece that measures 16" X 20". Please see flyer above for entry fees.

  • Please bring in work ready to display hanged with a frame (or gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides) and wired tightly on the back or to be displayed on a pedestal.

  • Entry forms need to be completed when you drop off your artwork.

  • Work needs to be up for the duration of the show.

Art Sales:

  • Work needs to be listed for sale in order to be judged for awards. For sales, we take 20% commission. Artists receive 80% minus the sales tax we submit.

Judging for Awards/Reception:

  • Artwork to be judged by artist Douglas Land and award winners will be notified prior to reception and given at the reception. Any award winners not able to attend will be mailed their award after the reception.

  • All artists encouraged to attend the reception on Thursday February 14th at 7PM.
