Calling Artists to create Monarch Butterfly Art

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on August 7, 2019

Created through a partnership between the City of Dade City and the Dade City Garden Club, the Dade City Monarch Project is a community wide effort to encourage, protect, and promote the Monarch butterfly and its habitat.

Out of Our Hands Gallery is looking for artists of all styles and mediums to enter your interpretation of the Monarch butterfly in their upcoming gallery show.

This art show is to support Dade City’s commitment to the Monarch butterfly.

Nearly a billion Monarch butterflies have vanished since 1990, according to data released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in February 2015.

Monarchs rely on the milkweed plants and nectar plants for their food and home.  These plants are increasingly vanishing all across America.  Dade City will directly help the Monarch butterfly population recover through public awareness, education and planting milkweed and nectar plants.

Out of Our Hands Gallery invites artists to enter Monarch Butterfly art show  

2D and 3D Artwork must portray or represent the Monarch butterfly in some form:  from Realism to Impressionism, from Fauvism to Pop Art….surprise us with your creativity!

There is also an “Emerging Artist” category for artists age 14-17. 

Entries must be in by September 7, 2019 and the show will be held from October 5-19. Submissions will be judged by owners of Out of Our Hands Gallery, Russ and Lee Taylor.

Prizes range from $50 to $100. All Artists have the option of selling their work or not.  Pricing is at the Artist’s discretion. A gallery commission of 20% will be deducted from the sale price. Artists will receive the remainder of the sale price.  Prize money awards are for Artists 18 and over. 

“Emerging Artist” category (ages 14-17) awards are gift certificates for classes at Out of Our Hands Gallery.
