2023 Arts in the Garden Artist Call for Entry

Arts in the Garden is a 3-day juried outdoor art show featuring 3-D garden art in a wide variety of mediums. The 2023 event will take place at the Bellevue Botanical Garden on Friday, August 25; Saturday, August 26; and Sunday, August 27. Participating artists must be present all three days.

Art is displayed throughout the Bellevue Botanical Garden in natural settings just as buyers would experience the art in their own gardens. This unique approach showcases the art at its best and allows artists to forgo tents and display grids. This is the 12th year the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society has hosted Arts in the Garden. Typical attendance is over 8,000 guests.

Application Deadline: March 31, 2023

Apply early because space is limited. Artists will be selected by jury. Accepted artists will be notified by email no later than May 31, 2023. If you are accepted, you will receive an artist contract.

Arts in the Garden features only hand-crafted art intended for display and use in an outdoor garden. Pieces must consist of work handmade by the artist and/or from the creative re-use of materials.
