Show Information

  • All booth spaces will be preassigned and specific spaces are not guaranteed. Location is based on proximity to like artists, and date of application received. 
  • Each exhibitor is responsible for providing his/her own booth and equipment. Summerfair is outdoors. Exhibitors should plan for sun and/or inclement weather.
  • Exhibitors will receive an ample amount of booth space (at least 12’ x 12’) with additional storage space behind booth.
  • Exhibitors may not use any additional space without consulting the show coordinator. All work, display, and storage must stay within the assigned exhibitor space. Booths should not interfere with neighboring booths. Show coordinator shall make the final determination and participants must adhere to coordinator decisions. 
  • Exhibitions or wares not conforming to event guidelines will be asked to remove those items or entire booth if necessary.
  • 24-hour security is provided for the mall grounds, but due to the size of the mall lot, we recommend all artists remove and safely store important or expensive items each night. The Yellowstone Art Museum is not responsible for any damage, theft, or accidents. 
  • Cancellation by artist for any reason after June 2 will result in forfeiture of booth fee.
  • Summerfair artists are required to stay open for business through Sunday, July 14th, until the closing time of 4:00 p.m. Vehicles will not be allowed in the gated area from Friday at 2 p.m. until 4:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Jurying and Application Information

  • Jurying is done by a committee of art community members. Jurors look for saleable, fine quality, creative, original work by the artist. The committee strives to balance media representation. Only work hand-crafted by the selling artist is acceptable. No commercial or mass-produced products will be permitted, except reproductions of paintings or drawings, as long as the original art is also for sale in the artist's booth. Since images of work are the determining factor in acceptance, take pictures with care. Jury decisions are final. Past participation does not guarantee jury acceptance.
  • Send four digital images that clearly represent work to be sold at Summerfair.  The committee recommends that three of these show a small grouping (2-4 items), in order to give the jurors a clear understanding of the variety and range of your work. One image should show your complete booth display. The committee reserves the right to refuse any artist the privilege of exhibiting work not previously approved by the jury.
  • Your non-refundable $30 application fee must accompany images and be submitted with this application. Images will not be juried without required fees. If your application is accepted by the jury, your booth fee will be due by June 15.
  • All artists will receive notification of the jurying results electronically.
