Art of the Garden - Call to Artists

"...let us cultivate our garden." Voltaire, from Candide

 From the Friends of the Haverford Township Free Library:


April 9, 2011-June 21, 2011

Reception Friday, April 8th, 5:30-8:30pm

Free and open to the public

 All artists are invited to apply to a special exhibition, Art of the Garden, a group show of 150 artworks on the theme of gardens, to serve as the second annual event of its kind to be held at the Haverford Township Free Library.

"Sowing the Seeds of a New Library" is the cause for which artists are sought, who will donate 20% of the purchase price of their artworks to the library's upkeep, seriously curtailed in the last two years by a 33% budget cut totaling more than $300,000.

As Haverford Township's only library and an essential social hub to an active and cultured population of all age ranges, the HTFL is the perfect gateway to a diverse new audience of collectors and viewers for local, national and international artists.
