Spring Forward!

An Earth Day Show

April 8 – May 6, 2022
Application Deadline: 
Wednesday, March 23, 2022, 11:59 PM 

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) is having an open call to all artists to submit their art for “Spring Forward!”, happening from April 8 – May 6, 2022 at the MAAG Gallery located at 7054 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19119.

After two years of social isolation, an economic crisis, a war growing in Eastern Europe, and the chaos that climate change is fomenting, isn’t it amazing that spring will still come? For many of us, our spirits are rejuvenated by the sun as we get to marvel at the Earth and its bounty keeps us inspired as we witness the reawakening of the Earth’s vitality, abundance, and color. Do you have a favorite garden, a public space, or maybe it’s your own backyard that’s your hideaway to shake off winter’s slumber? What does the garden do for your artistic soul? 

This is a Call for Artists to show your garden scenery, as well as work that is inspired by the garden environment, or designed to be placed in the garden to enhance the experience. We’re looking for our artists to show how spring and the glory of nature can inspire them and rejuvenate their spirits. 

Artists may submit up to two (2) pieces of art no larger than 4′ X 4′ to be on display and for sale in this upcoming exhibit. All work must be framed and ready to hang. If you are submitting a sculpture you will need to provide your own pedestal. 

Can we step outside this tangled time, feel the breeze, bask in the sunlight, be cleansed by the rain, inhale the sweet earthy scents and CREATE ART?
