Call for Artists: Juried Exhibit - Application Deadline

Apr 30, 2021   |    All Day -

The National Museum of Wildlife Art is looking for professional artists currently residing in Wyoming, Idaho, or Montana to submit artwork for our Woven Together: Art and Arachnids exhibit. The Museum is looking for 2-D artwork or sculptural relief (i.e. fiber art, collage, etc.) featuring spiders in ways that highlight their beauty and demonstrate their relevance to the ecosystem. Artworks informed/influenced by science as indicated in your artist statement will be given priority.

Artwork will be juried by staff members from the National Museum of Wildlife Art with input from art students at Teton County high schools. All applicants will be notified of the Museum’s decision by May 15, 2021

  • Accepted artworks must come pre-fitted with D-rings for easy installation. No picture hooks or wires. Exceptions to this are artworks that are intended not to be framed (fiber art, relief sculptures). Please contact Sari Ann Platt if D-rings cannot be attached to the back.
  • Artworks must not exceed 36 inches (unframed) in either their length or width.
  • All artwork must be delivered to and picked up from the Museum by the artist at the artist’s expense. Shipping options are available on a case-by-case basis and must be pre-approved by Sari Ann Platt. Shipping costs are to be covered by the artist if applicable.

    What People Are Saying

    Although I am not a big fan of Western art, I thoroughly enjoyed the museum. The sculpture was stunning, and the views from the museum were beautiful. I learned so much about American artists, and the history of the difficulty in having wildlife paintings accepted by artists' organizations was fascinating. A lovely visit.
