2024 Blanchet House On the Ledge Art Show: Homegrown

Deadline May 31, 2024

Homegrown (adj):
1) grown or produced in one’s garden or country
2) belonging to one’s particular locality or country

The Blanchet House Emerging Professionals Board presents the fifth annual On the
Ledge art show. This year’s theme, Homegrown, is an invitation to artists to delve into the roots of
their creativity and reflect on the concept of home.

Now in its fifth year, On the Ledge serves a dual purpose of celebrating artists, while raising funds to
support Blanchet House’s crucial services to the houseless community. Artists from a variety of
mediums are invited to submit original or existing works for the 2024 exhibition which will run in
August. Each piece submitted should be an exploration of the Homegrown theme.

Selected artwork will be displayed in an online gallery as well as at an opening reception on August 1,
2024. Revenue from digital print sales will be split 50/50 between Blanchet House and the artist. The
original may also be sold if the artist wishes to.

Submissions will be accepted until Friday, May 31 using the 2024 Artist Submission Form. For further
details, please visit BHOntheLedge.com or explore past work on Instagram @bhontheledge.
We hope you will join us in celebrating the diverse tapestry of what it means to be and feel
Homegrown.
