Call for Artists

2015 Northwest Flower and Garden Show February 11 - 15, 2015 Washington State Convention Center NW Flower & Garden Show

This is a Call to Artists for all members of NWSSA to participate in the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, which boasts over 100,000 visitors each year. If you have never shown your work, this is a great place to start. NWSSA has been participating in this show for over 20 years, and many new members and Camp Brotherhood show visitors have discovered us through this venue!

This year we'll have a 10'x20' booth with room for about 30 sculptures. Pieces selected must be family safe, rated General, as children often visit the booth. Sculptures will be selected on a first come basis. For this show we do not ask for a commission, we ask you to participate at the show and promote NWSSA. Participation in the show requires working the booth for a day with other carvers and helping with either set up or tear down. You also get free admission to enjoy the rest of the show off shift.

The show runs from Feb. 11 to 15th. Hours are 9 AM to 8 PM except on Sunday, 9 AM to 6 PM, followed by load out. Set up will be Feb. 9th.

Our booth is an Educational Booth, so no prices can be posted on pieces during the show. For inquiries, we can give out a price and other contact information, so please have that available. If you are interested in participating in this event, please contact us before Jan. 20th.
