For the past 15 years, an integral part of the All Saints Garden Tour, which donates all proceeds to local 501(c)(3) charities, has been the Artist Poster Contest. Hundreds of local artists have entered works in this competition, and many have sold their work as a result.
In preparation for the 34th All Saints Garden Tour, scheduled for May 20, 2023, local artists are invited to enter one piece of two-dimensional, garden-related art in the poster competition. Flowers, birds, bees, butterflies, frogs, fountains, floral landscapes and abstracts are acceptable subjects for entries.
Works in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastels, mixed media, photography, and colored pencil are acceptable. The piece selected for the poster must be vertically oriented, roughly 12×10 in scale.
The submitted art will be hung in the gallery corridor of the Hilton Head Branch Library Feb. 3-28, 2023. Deadline for submission is early January.
The artwork selected for the Garden Tour Poster will be on hundreds of posters displayed throughout Beaufort and Jasper Counties and on the cover of the Garden Tour ticket booklet. In addition, the art may be used in the future for charitable garden tour fundraising.
