Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
September 9 & 10 -- new!
Downtown Louisville at Waterfront Park
120 juried, emerging and demonstration artists
Deadline: May 1
Application fee: $25.00; Booth fee: $425.00
This is a new festival: Our goal from the beginning has been to expose Louisville to quality artists in a venue that is conducive to the patron and the artist, to make our festival pleasant and profitable to all. It is a highly anticipated event that is well supported by the community and numerous non-profits. Three years in the planning to bring a quality show where artists are the center of our show, not the entertainment.
Big Four Bridge Lawn is 4 acres of tree lined walks overlooking the Ohio River. 25,000 walkers and joggers cross the Big 4 Pedestrian Bridge most weekends. Located within walking distance of downtown accommodations, restaurants and night life. Also, ample parking with trolley service to and from the festival.
A beautiful location and setting and a large turn out of patrons is what we offer you the artist.
Advertising will include Louisville and surrounding area newspaper and radio, social media, websites, Facebook, newsletters, personal invites sent to (3,500+) collector's, billboard, printed postcards, press releases and invitations to art schools for emerging artists.
The jury of 4 experienced arts industry professionals will select a balanced show based solely on quality of work illustrated in submitted digital images. Images are viewed by mediums and the artist statement is read. Jury process is open to the public. All artists that are accepted for 2017 will not have to go through the jury pool in 2018.
