Competition for external artworks to be shown at Art in the Garden 2024 in Hampshire. This is an open call to any artist or maker working in any medium, living in Hampshire or the adjoining counties. Entrants must be 18 years of age or over, including students.

Art in the Garden is an annual show and has been running for many years, however since 2018 we have introduced an additional opportunity to exhibit in  the woodland area along with Little Forest Land Art exhibitors.   

We want to build on the success of previous installations and extend the variety of works on show. There are many different areas and environments around the site including decaying corrugated pig huts, wood pile walls, and under old oak & yew trees, to name a few. 

The event is well attended and many sales are made, however, this is primarily an opportunity for your work to be exposed to a wider audience in a different environment and attended by many curators, collectors and enthusiasts. 

Looking forward to seeing your submission .... something for the external environment - any material considered providing robust enough to withstand the elements during the event.

This is a judged competition and the winner will receive £150 there will also be a People`s Choice award of £50 voted for by the visiting public during the show.
