D&R Greenway Call for Artists for Juried Exhibit “Farms, Barns and Bridges”

D&R Greenway Land Trust seeks works of art with the themes of farms, barns, and/or bridges, for its upcoming exhibition. Submission deadline is September 19. Work in any medium and of any size is welcome, including video & sculpture. For more information and to submit an entry, please visit http://bit.ly/2aqWjiy.  The exhibit, “Farms, Barns and Bridges” will be on view October 24 through December 16. 

The purpose of Farms, Barns and Bridges is to call attention to these subjects, to encourage preservation and appreciation. In past centuries, the Garden State’s landscape was dominated by farmland, flanked by rolling hills. Our state was studded with patchworks of tended rows, punctuated by gleaming silos, weathered barns and historic covered bridges. As a result of sprawl, much irreplaceable farmland has vanished. Remaining barns and covered bridges are highly prized. Repurposed barn wood has come to be coveted by architects and designers of this century. Memories of the rural landscape are preserved by artists. Since 1989, D&R Greenway Land Trust has been actively preserving New Jersey farmland, to ensure bountiful local crops and healthy water. Remarkable landscapes remain to inspire regional artists.
