Call for Salt Marsh Art
If you love wild places and care about the natural world, we need your help with our Call for Salt Marsh Art.
As part of Portishead Salt Marsh Day, August 14th, we want a pictorial display. So we would like your sketches, paintings, prints, collages, poems, textile, embroidery etc on the theme of Salt Marshes.
We need a big show of beautiful thoughts and images to show that Salt Marshes matter and we care about them. Not only do they protect and support wildlife, they are great carbon stores, they absorb the impact of waves and are unique environments for endangered species.
The display will be mounted on trellis, acting as a grid. So the items must be backed by card so that we can stick them to the grid using velcro strips.
We will show as many pieces as we can, at least one from each entrant, most probably more.
If you need some inspiration have a look at some of the photos on Portishead Salt Marshes gallery. We would love your depiction of the landscape and or the wildlife that lives there.
