JURYING: Due to space constraints, applications will be juried. Artists who are not juried into this year’s show will automatically be added to a Waitlist and will be notified if space becomes available.


  • During the jurying process, priority will be placed on having a diverse mix of represented media including a mix of painting, ceramics, jewelry, mixed media, photography, wood, fiber and metal work. The emphasis will be to have a variety of different high quality arts & fine crafts.

  • Each year, we work to find a mix of new and returning artists.

  • All application materials are reviewed including images, artist statement, website, and social media (if applicable) for high quality work, well made, unique, and well presented.

  • Were all the questions on the application answered, directions were properly and professionally followed, and materials submitted?

  • We review how many submissions are in the same media category (photography, painting, etc.). We also assess the diversity with the same media (subject, materials, price point, etc)
