Art Submission Form

How Does Your Garden Grow?

The Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center will host a show of artworks reflecting upon “How Does Your Garden Grow?”  We invite artists to submit artwork related to gardens (flower or vegetable) and/or bees, butterflies, birds, the wind and other creatures and things you can imagine which help to pollinate plants.

This is a summer show, running July through September.  It collaborates with the Wild Rivers Pollinator Project and the Port of Bandon Boardwalk Art show to publicize the importance of pollinators to the survival of life as we know it.

Please remember that art on the hospital walls is meant to entertain and de-stress the patients, families, staff, and general visitors.  It is not a venue for nudity, violence, morbidity, or as a political soapbox. Thank you for your continued positive approach to art in these shows.

Artists may enter 1-3 pieces using painting, collage, mixed media, drawing, photography or assemblage in all artistic styles: representational, abstract, impressionistic, or futuristic.  All works must be able to be hung on the wall.
