As Our Gardens Grow Art Contest

Hamilton Gardens invites you to submit your two dimensional art in their “As Our Gardens Grow” art contest. This contest will benefit Hamilton Gardens at Lake Chatuge, Inc. and is the forerunner to A Blooming Affair at Hamilton Gardens. On April 14 and for several weekends following, there will be plant sales and various activities to celebrate the beauty of the Gardens and share with the community what is happening as our gardens grow.
Artists are encouraged to include one or several botanical elements in a creative yet realistic piece. The image size must be no smaller than 11” x 14” in oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media or drawing. Cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners with amounts to be announced later. The deadline to enter your art will be April 20th.
Our friends at Artworks in Hiawassee will be displaying all of the entries beginning April 23rd . ArtWorks Gallery is owned and operated by the Mountain Regional Arts and Crafts Guild, Inc. a 501(c)3 organization, where members may sell their work and share their expertise with students on a regular basis by teaching classes. Artists participating in Hamilton Gardens’ Art Contest, with the exception of the winner, may have their art entries available for sale while the exhibition is open at Artworks. A complete set of rules and guidelines and an entry form are available here. Waiver for Art Contest 2018 You may also call (706)970-0011 for more information.
