Call for photos
Painters Marney-Rose Edge and Claire Sower are collaborating to create Garden Escapes, an exhibition at PoMoArts that reflects their love of florals and the garden spaces they grow in. Gardens in our yards, on our decks, or the public gardens where we gather. They have become even more of a place of refuge, calm and diversion during the pandemic. The heightened importance of the social and mental benefits of these spaces inspired the artists to add to their exhibition artwork by inviting people to share their photos of garden spaces they find colourful, restful or beautiful. The artists will select from the submitted photos and paint a few of them to show in the exhibition. Each of the artists have different styles; with Marney-Rose focusing on painting detailed florals, while Claire enjoys painting the broader view garden vistas.
Your photos could feature close ups of your favorite flowers from the garden, like roses, peonies, dahlias and so on, or wider shots of flower beds, rock gardens, grass gardens, water gardens and wildflowers. Some ideas are:
• Gardens that have made you go wow, when you walk or drive by.
• Water gardens that showcase water features or water falls, patio water features that include flower and plant life.
• Secret gardens, featuring the private backyard, and courtyards arbors and trellised gardens,
• Gardens that provide space for contemplation, reflection and solace.
It may not be possible to paint each of the selected photos, but they will be shown in a digital video gallery to play during the exhibition and the photographers will be acknowledged.
