Only four paintings will compete for prizes.

All exhibited paintings must be framed in a professional manner and delivered at the specified time to the exhibition venue. No saw tooth hangers.

Since painting ends on August 31 - all work should be dry by the exhibition time.
All work exhibited must be for sale.
LandArt Events reserves the right to decide if a painting should not be exhibited.

Artists are responsible for insuring their work. LandArtEvents, Rosehill Farm nor the Brandywine Conservancy will be responsible for works damaged, lost or stolen.
All artwork sales will be paid to LandArt Events. Artists will be paid in a timely manner.
Commission: The commission of 35 percent on work sold will go toward the following.
Brandywine Conservancy to support their efforts to protect our natural resouces
Administrative fees for planning and managing the project
Cover transaction fees on sales
Artists selling artwork created on the designated properties which sells prior to the event should consider giving a donation to Brandywine Conservancy. We ask that you inform us of any Farm to Table Plein Air work which is sold prior to October 26, 2019 that was created in Farm to Table Plein Air. This is just for grant reporting.
SALES after the October Event We ask that if you sell Farm to Table paintings in the the month after the event and it is because of your relationship with LandArt Events and the Brandywine Conservancy that you consider paying the 35 percent commission.
Our goal is to help our artists sell all the work that has been created in the Farm to Table Plein Air Event.
In past years, we have had additional shows after the main event. We may have that opportunity again.
Be present at the final event during the time periods specified.
Be part of at least one community day. You will need to sign up for these online- sign up is on a first come first serve basis. There are several dates to choose from and if you can not attend any of them you can help out during the set up for the final event to satisfy this obligation.
Juried and Invited Artists will notify LandArt Events if they find they can not participate in Farm to Table Plein Air painting or events for any reason. We have picked some alternative competition artists should the need arise.
