July Deadline Set for Area Artists Participating in Helping People Succeed’s Calendar Project

Artists from Indian River, Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties are invited to submit artwork for Helping People Succeed’s annual Art for Living Calendar, now in its 22nd year and featuring the area’s outstanding arts community.

The Call for Artists spells out the guidelines and requirements for the painting submissions, applications and other requirements for the 13-month calendar. Each month’s page will include a selected painting, background on the artist and a photo of each artist, plus a page sponsor from area businesses.

The calendar theme consists of tropical scenes that depict the beauty of the Treasure Coast, including birds, fish, wildlife, flowers, coconuts, rivers, lagoons, the Savannas and more. Other scenes in the past have been of historical buildings such as The Lyric Theatre, The Tuckahoe Mansion, The Rand Estate, downtown Stuart and The House of Refuge.

Deadline for applications and art submissions is Monday, July 13th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. The submission from each artist will include an application, an entry fee of $25 and a high-resolution jpeg photo of the painting to be submitted for the first calendar judging review. Once the judges select the artwork during the first review, original unframed paintings will be submitted for the final judging.

Application forms and guidelines explaining the calendar process are available online here. Each artist should be aware of size, framing and other specifications to participate in this meaningful and popular calendar project. Submissions should be emailed to Glenna Parris at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
