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.

  • 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.

  • Cancellation by artist for any reason after June 1, 2021 will result in forfeiture of booth fee.

Jurying and Application Information

  • Jurying is done by a committee of 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 two to five digital images that clearly represent work to be sold at Summerfair.  The committee recommends that three of these show a small grouping (two to four items), in order to give the jurors a clear understanding of the variety and range of your work. One image must 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.
  • If your application is accepted by the jury, your booth fee will be due by May 28.
  • All artists will receive notification of the jurying results electronically.
