A secret hideaway high atop trees, the treehouse is a place of adventure, instinct, and imagination. In youth, treetop forts created a sanctuary for survival games. In adulthood, the allure of the treehouse speaks to the desire for a close encounter with nature.
From the adventures of Huckleberry Finn and the Swiss Family Robinson to the neighbor's backyard and beyond, the treehouse endures as a powerful and enchanting symbol of the wilderness spirit.
This spring, UPPERCASE will launch Treehouse, an art exhibition celebrating the drama, beauty, freedom, danger, and escape of treetop living. We invite you to live out your treehouse memories or fantasies in artistic form.
Send us a drawing of the treehouse you remember playing in as a child or an image of the one you would love to construct for your very own private island getaway. Photography, painting, collage and other visual mediums of representation are also welcome.
*Some submissions will be featured in our debut issue of UPPERCASE, a magazine for the creative and curious. If you are interested in participating, please email us. Submissions are due electronically by March 1. If your work is selected for inclusion in the gallery show, we will send further instructions.
