In Person May 17 – May 19, 2024 at Great Hollow Nature Preserve

Online May 17 – June 30, 2024


Deadline for Submissions:  April 15, 2024

Calling all painters and photographers who love nature and would like to participate in the seventh annual Great Hollow Photographers Club Juried Painting and Photography Show.  Over the past six years, we have raised more than $8500 for Great Hollow Nature Preserve and we hope you will join us for this seventh year of fundraising.

Opening Reception is on Friday, May 17, 2024, 6:00– 8:00 pm and all are welcome.  The show will continue for viewing and sales Saturday May 18 and Sunday May 19, 2024 10 am – 4 pm, in the barn at Great Hollow. The show will also be online from May 17 – June 30, 2024. The deadline for submission is midnight on Monday April 15, 2024.

Artists are invited to submit up to four (4) digital images of 2-dimensional work for the competition. Accepted media are photographs, paintings, collages, drawings and digitally augmented art. There is no fee to submit. The hanging fee for the show is $15 for each accepted work and the Great Hollow Photographers Club will retain a 25% commission on all works sold during the show. All works must be for sale as the profits from the Art Show support Great Hollow Nature Preserve’s mission of environmental education, research, and conservation.

The artwork should highlight the Great Hollow Nature Center or, more broadly, the richness of nature and/or the rural life of America’s Northeastern states. Prizes will be donations from local businesses.  Jurors for the artwork are Linda Puiatti for painting and Justin Goodhart for photography.

Linda Puiatti is a full time artist who paints atmospheric landscapes inspired by the many places where she has traveled and lived. Her favorite locales are the beaches and marshes of the Northeast, Hudson River Valley fields and mountains and the big sky flatlands and farms of Belgium, Netherlands and France where she lived for ten years. These paintings are born in a traditional realism that reaches into the contemporary art world, eliminating minutia in favor of a broad landscape impression. Puiatti’s paintings hang in private and public collections throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Africa and can also be found in several local galleries.  For more information regarding Puiatti, visit her website: www.lindapuiatti.com

Justin Goodhart grew up in New York’s Adirondack region and has always had a strong connection to the land and the beauty of the world around us.  After having been a casual photographer for many years it was the beauty of the Hudson Valley that served as inspiration for Goodhart to start taking photography more seriously.  Focusing primarily on long exposure landscape and nighttime photography he often works to capture not just the momentary scene but also the feeling of our movement through time. For more information on Goodhart, visit: www.justinpgoodhart.com.
