Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Every time we get a rejection from an art fair we are puzzled. What went wrong? Here is an excellent opportunity to get some good insight into what is happening. Larry Berman is always telling you to do this and I absolutely concur. You will be amazed at what you learn, maybe just some tweak to your images, but most importantly you will see the competition in your category.

If you live within a two hour drive of Columbus, you should be there.

Here are the details:


COLUMBUS, Ohio – A jury panel for the Columbus Arts Festival presented by Time Warner Cable will choose the 2010 event artists at a two-day public meeting Feb. 6-7 at the City of Upper Arlington Municipal Building, 3600 Tremont Rd.

Panelists will review the hundreds of artist applications from across the country to determine the approximately 230 who will be invited to participate in this year’s event, produced by the Greater Columbus Arts Council. The jury will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat., Feb. 6 and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sun., Feb. 7.

To attend all or part of the jury, please RSVP to Amanda Teague, Columbus Arts Festival Coordinator, at 614-224-2606 or

Each year, artists who wish to be considered for the Festival apply through ZAPPlication™, an online application tool, by submitting four digital images of their work and one image of their booth display. A jury panel, selected by the GCAC staff, conducts a blind jury process, where jurors review the artists’ images and technical statements without knowing the artists’ names or hometown. The top scores, allowing for a balanced show across mediums, are invited to participate in the Festival.

The jurors for the 2010 Columbus Arts Festival are:
- Dr. Annegreth Nill, an art historian and independent curator
- Kelly Malec-Kosak, a jewelry/mixed media artist and faculty member of the Columbus College of Art & Design
- Matt Reber, manager and buyer for the Wexner Center for the Arts
- Eva Kwong, a ceramic and printmaking artist and adjunct faculty member of Kent State University
- Tony Cray, a glass artist from St. Louis, Mo.

Artists will be chosen in the following categories: Metal; Digital Art; 2D Mixed Media; 3D Mixed Media; Jewelry; Printmaking & Graphics; Photography; Fiber; Drawing & Pastels; Clay; Glass; Sculpture; Painting; Leather; and Wood.
