Welcome to the 2019 Arts Picnic Online Application

Eligibility
The “Park Your Art” committee welcomes all artists in any fine art or fine craft medium exhibiting his or her own handmade work of art. No dealers or sales representatives are allowed. The show is juried by local committees to maintain high quality, originality and creativity with a balance of represented arts and crafts.

The following items are NOT eligible for sale as arts and crafts items at the Arts Picnic:
• Commercially manufactured items that are not significantly altered by the artist or crafter
• Imported & resale items
• Kits & ceramics cast from a commercial mold
• Henna tattoos & face painting (Due to returning invited vendors)

A piece may incorporate some commercially produced parts, but the design and execution of the work must be the product of the exhibiting artist’s skill. Alteration and enhancement by the crafts-person and the handcrafted components must dominate the commercial components. Other factors in the jury process are price justification and artists featuring a specific media, NOT a variety booth.

Prior participation in the Arts Picnic does not guarantee acceptance into this or future shows. Because of the large number of applications processed, no conversation will be entered into regarding the decision of the jury. All decisions are final!

Work on display after the opening of the Arts Picnic will be reviewed by the committee. Any participant whose display includes work that is not consistent with the work submitted for jurying will be required to withdraw the work in question from the show without refund of booth fees.

Booth space may be shared if both artists are accepted.  A two-person team producing a single product may qualify as a single exhibitor.

ONLY COMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED BY THE JURY COMMITTEE!

Upon acceptance by the jury, no booth space refunds will be made. In the event of an emergency, written requests for refunds will be considered at the discretion of the Arts Picnic.
