The Hort is pleased to announce an open call for NY-based artists to exhibit in our Project Space. We encourage local, emerging artists who are engaged by the environment and the natural world to submit proposals for consideration.

Launched in May 2013, the Project Space is a 100-square-foot area adjacent to our main gallery that showcases emerging artists offering a fresh perspective on botany, landscape, and the environment. We are searching for artwork in all media—including painting, photography, sculpture, site-specific installations, and video—that suits the intimate size of the exhibition area.

The Hort will provide installation services, transportation of artworks (within New York City), promotion (postcard and email announcements), and an opening reception, which will be held in conjunction with exhibitions in our main gallery.  A small stipend will be awarded to each selected artist. (Please note: the artist is responsible for all fabrication and production expenses.)

Gallery Dimensions:
Wall: 10’ wide x 7’ high
Floor: 10’ x 10’

2014 Open Call for Entries is CLOSED
