There is a $15 fee for this show collected at drop off. Postcards will be emailed to participating artists. They may be printed and distributed. We ask that artists commit work that is accepted so that we have a successful show. In the past, artists have contributed percentage of their sales to McHenry County Conservation District.
This show is open to all artists 18 years and older. All studio or plein air paintings, drawings, photographs, or prints are acceptable. Works must represent McHenry County Conservation trails, paths, or waterways.
2-D work must be wired to hang [no saw tooth hangers] and a label affixed to the back with the artist’s name, title of work, medium and sale price. Artwork must be professionally presented. Please provide any special hanging requirements. The hanging committee reserves the right to reject any artwork that is deemed unsuitable including but not exclusive of work not ready to hang, unprofessional presentation, concern for condition of the piece or space availability.
Although MCCD will make every reasonable effort to protect your work while it is in our possession, we are not legally responsible for it. No shipments will be received. Work must remain hanging throughout the duration of show.
We look forward to including all our local artist friends! Enter early. For additional information contact:
