WOODSTOCK – The Land Conservancy of McHenry County invites artists to submit samples of their work for consideration in its fifth annual Art of the Land benefit on Sept. 20 and 21. 

All work accepted for the show will be inspired by the land and all it provides.

The Land Conservancy is a local nonprofit organization that works with individuals and communities in McHenry County to preserve natural, agricultural and scenic land and water resources. The event is held to raise awareness and funding for the land preservation and restoration work that would not occur if TLC were not available to help. Art of the Land is a two-night event held at the Historic Starline Gallery in Harvard. Art sales totaled nearly $18,000 at the 2012 event, which was attended by at least 500 people. There is no entry fee, but all artists agree to donate 30 percent of sales back to TLC. To submit, carefully read the artist guidelines and return a signed artist application by June 3. Jury selections will be announced on June 14.

All guidelines and application materials are available at TLC’s website: www.conservemc.org/ways-to-help/special-events-fundraisers/art-of-the-land-art-show-benefit.html.

Questions can be directed to Cheryl Voss, cvoss@conservemc.org or by calling 815-337-9502.
