The Trail Conference is accepting submissions of artwork for a group exhibition depicting wildflowers through April 17.

Works done in all two-dimensional media, including photography, will be considered. The exhibition is scheduled to run June 2 through Sept. 29 at Trail Conference Headquarters, 600 Ramapo Valley Rd., Mahwah, N.J. 

Each artist may submit digital images of up to three artworks for an entry fee of $15. The works should depict or be inspired by wildflowers. Species that grow in this general area are preferred, but not required. Work must be framed and ready for hanging. Read the full prospectus with instructions for entering.

Accepted works may be offered for sale. TheTrail Conference art gallery, while new, has a respectable record of sales that has been increasing with each show. Twenty percent of any sale, along with the show entry fee, will benefit the work and programs of the Trail Conference. The show will be juried, and awards will be announced and presented at the June 15 opening reception. Prizes are courtesy of a generous donation by Dick Blick Art Materials of Paramus

Our previous juried group show—a photo show—was a lot of fun. It featured an exciting mix of works by seasoned professionals, as well as photo enthusiasts who had never exhibited before. The shows and receptions bring new visitors to the Trail Conference's historic headquarters at Darlington Schoolhouse and help increase awareness of the organization and all that it does. We invite you to be a part of it!
