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

Call for Artists: 15th Annual Festival of Fine Craft

October 4 & 5
Millville, New Jersey
Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center
100 Village Dr.
130+ Artists
Deadline:  May 15


The Festival of Fine Craft at WheatonArts is an award winning, two-day event showcasing the handcrafted work of over 130 juried artists from across the country.  It is our premier annual event and one of the most highly rated shows in the Mid-Atlantic region.

WheatonArts, located in southern New Jersey, is three hours from New York, NY, two hours from Washington, D.C., and less than an hour from Philadelphia.  It is very accessible from the area's major highways. 

Artists may exhibit outdoors in a scenic, woodland setting or indoors in the Event Center.  The work ranges from studio art glass to unusual metal sculptures, innovative wearables and accessories to intricate baskets, and sculptural and functional clay pieces to two-dimensional art and photography.

Our comprehensive marketing plans includes year-long promotion through print and electronic media. We provide convenient set up and breakdown, overnight security, booth sitters and unequaled hospitality throughout the show.

Lodging at reduced rates is offered to exhibitors at the Country Inn adjacent to the show grounds and at other nearby hotels.

Open studios, craft demonstrations and a variety of interactive children's activities add to the excitement, making the festival both entertaining and educational.

I am pleased to say that I have been accepted into this show for the past 4 years. It is a wonderful show (at least in my limited travel experience). The staff treats the artists extremely well and work hard to insure all needs are met. As the call for artists states, you have the option of exhibiting in your tent outdoors, or under their large tent. There is also exhibiting inside a clean, modern, carpeted, indoor event center. Set-up is a breeze either on Friday during the day or on Saturday morning with driving access directly to your outdoor or tent location. Parking, once you are unloaded, is provided in a lot specifically for artists across the street. There is minimal room behind your space in some areas for storage. Tear-down is just as effortless and well controlled. There are generally about 150 exhibitors accepted. You can Google the show to see last years breakdown of artist disciplines. Attendance has been pretty much as advertised. The folks who come are generally looking for the art and not the entertainment. This has always been one of my best shows for sales, but I understand that each artist will have his or her own expectation or definition of what is good. Booth fees and electricity were raised slightly this year. The grounds are gorgeous with a few small shops, along with the Museum of American Glass. I live about a half mile from WheatonArts and will be happy to try to answer any questions you might have in relation to the show or the area. I'm sure the WheatonArts staff will also be very accommodating to any questions.

I did it two or three years ago and I agree with everything David writes.
