CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – OUTDOOR SCULPTURE

Oeno Gallery’s Sculpture Garden at Huff Estates

Oeno Gallery’s Sculpture Garden at Huff Estates opened in 2011 as a place dedicated to the exhibition of high-quality outdoor sculpture. The 4-acre garden is a prized feature of the property and receives tens of thousands of visitors yearly.

The gallery invites artists to submit proposals for the garden’s outdoor exhibition. The property offers a wide variety of sites for placement. Areas to consider include the sculpture garden proper, the outdoor area by the winery, the zone immediately surrounding the gallery, and the pond (limestone quarry). Please see the video link at the bottom to get a better sense of the outdoor space. Proposals will be reviewed and selected by the gallery.

The artist is responsible for the transportation, installation, and removal of their work. Sculptures must be able to withstand extreme year-round weather conditions and tolerate strong winds. Sculptures must be original, durable, and safe for viewing by the public in an unsupervised natural area. The work must also be available for sale. Interested artists are asked to submit proposals to Dana Charles: dcharles@oenogallery.com

  1. Contact information: Name, Address, Phone Number, E-mail, Website

  8. Description of the project and plan for installation. Please consider all aspects of transporting the work to the garden site in Prince Edward County, ON and installing the piece in the garden. An on-site forklift is available upon prior request. **The Gallery will not accept the work if the artist cannot transport and install the sculpture(s)**
  9. Estimated retail price of the work


Deadline:
If you would like your work to be considered for the 2018 Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition, please submit by Jan 24th, 2018.

The gallery may ask to extend the display for a longer period of time.
