For Immediate Release

Artists are invited to submit original artworks for the 2022 Exhibition Parks and Recreation

Bryan Memorial Gallery (Jeffersonville, Vermont) and Bennington Museum (Bennington, Vermont) are excited to announce a call for artists for the upcoming collaborative Parks and Recreation exhibition. Held conjunctively at these two locations during the summer 2022 season this exhibit will highlight historical and contemporary interpretations of Vermont’s 55 state parks and explore the diverse beauty of these protected wildscapes in all seasons.

Artists will be invited to visit their choice of Vermont park(s), enveloping themselves in the creative inspiration to represent in their artwork.

Access to Vermont’s state parks has been generously made available through a partnership with Vermont Parks Forever, the Foundation for Vermont State Parks, whose donated vouchers can be used to visit a Vermont park of choice during peak season. Vouchers are limited, offered on a first come first serve basis, and are not required off-season. To claim a voucher, contact with your information, and a gallery representative will respond to your request.

All artists working in original 2-dimensional artwork will be invited to submit up to three pieces to the exhibition jury in spring 2022. Complete exhibition specifications will be posted in June 2021. Bryan Gallery and Bennington Museum will reserve the right to select the location where artworks will be shown during the duration of the show.
Please remember to follow Vermont’s Covid guidelines for quarantining, social distancing, and mask compliance while visiting.
