ART AND CONSERVATION: OUR HIDDEN TREASURES promotes conservation through works of art that focus on the Hill Country’s natural resources – land, water, wildlife and native plants. ART AND CONSERVATION also allows artists the unique opportunity to have access to private lands as well as local public lands, such as parks and along Texas back roads.
ART AND CONSERVATION began in 2007 as a collaboration between the Cibolo Nature Center, Cibolo Arts Council, and Boerne Area Artists Association.
There have been several changes since the last show - Boerne Area Artists Association has become Boerne Professional Artists. The Cibolo Arts Council has evolved into the Hill Country Council for the Arts, encompassing a much larger geographic area.
ART AND CONSERVATION 2009- 2011
The call for entries will extend to the entire Texas Hill Country. Artists will be juried into the ART AND CONSERVATION SHOW, Spring, 2011, by submitting a digital image by March 1, 2010 of an original artwork inspired by a public natural area in the Texas Hill Country. Any medium is acceptable; art may be 2 or 3 dimensional.
Artists are urged to limit the inclusion of man-made construction, to look beyond the usual Texas Hill Country clichés, such as, deer and bluebonnets, and search out unique native plants, animals and physical features of this region. Those who are selected will then be entered into a lottery for private property assignments.
Deadline for receipt of entry forms and fees is March 1, 2010.
