The "Beyond Beautiful" Artburst Studios show opens online at on August 15th at 10am MT and runs through August 17th at 6pm MT.

Artists are actively promoted through show graphics, individual artist profile pages, blog posts, and on social media. Artwork sales take place on the Artburst platform. Artists ship pieces directly to collectors at the conclusion of the show. Shows include a mixture of returning artists and artists new to Artburst Studios. 

We encourage artists to view our website and social media accounts prior to applying to learn more about Artburst Studios.

  • Each selected artist will create a collection of 10-12 original pieces designed specifically for the show, taking the theme “Beyond Beautiful” into consideration.

Review process

Artist entries will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the final application deadline. 

Artists who make it to the second round of selection will receive an invitation to meet online with a member of the Artburst Leadership Team.  At this time, an overview of Artburst show processes, timelines and expectations will be reviewed with the artist. 

Within 48 hours of meeting, formal offers of acceptance will be sent via email, including the Artburst Artist Agreement. Artists must sign the agreement and submit a W-9 (if applicable) before being added to the final show roster. 

Artists may be invited to another upcoming Artburst show if the “Beyond Beautiful” show isn’t the right fit.
