2013 Art in the Garden

The McCall Arts and Humanities Council (MAHC) is seeking artists to participate in the 2013 Art in the Garden juried art show and silent auction. This annual event serves as an important benefit for the nonprofit MAHC, providing funds to support community arts programming throughout west-central Idaho. Originally started by friends as a commemoration to Marjorie Moore Davidson, “Art in the Garden” is held each summer in a beautiful private outdoor venue on Payette Lake known as 'Charlie's Garden'. This celebration features a silent auction of diverse regional art, delicious appetizers & wine, and live music. 


Participating artists will be selected by a three-member jury consisting of individuals with professional experience in the fields of higher education, art sales, collection, and creation. All pieces will be offered for sale via silent auction, with the minimum bid to be determined by the artist. As in years past, work must be presented framed or appropriately finished, and ready to take from the site the evening of the event. Artists are responsible for the display of pieces, as well as pieces that remain unsold. Artists are expected to be present at the event, or otherwise represented by a responsible party. Lodging assistance may be available to artists who request it. 


Any questions about the event or potential participation can be directed to mccallartshumanities@gmail.com .
