The Appalachian mountains are home to one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the United States. As Appalachian artists, we draw our inspiration from this abundance and celebrate it. For this competition, Create Appalachia seeks artistic works of visual art that show the artist’s original vision, demonstrate technical skill, and that highlight our natural bounty. Open to all media in the visual arts, including film/video, digital media, photography, textiles & fiber art, painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry crafts, & more.

Leaf & Root & Berry: a Botanical Art Show & Competition is presented by Create Appalachia. This year’s jurors are Judith Hammond (Founder & Director of What’s the Buzz, a non-profit devoted to the protection of pollinators and native plants) Brian Serway (Appalachian illustrator who specializes in celestial creatures, cosmic dreamscapes, and nature’s nocturnal mischief), Suzanne Stryk (Appalachian fine artist and author, fascinated and focused on the natural world).

Jocelyn Mathewes, fine artist and creative entrepreneur, is our Exhibit Coordinator. You can learn more about her projects, including her virtual exhibits and consulting, at www.jocelynmathewes.com.
