Providence Rhode, Island
Presented By: ArtSmart Productions
200 Artists
Deadline: April 20
Application Fee: $35    Booth Fee; $600

The Rhode Island Convention Center is located in Providence, a culturally rich and art-savvy community which is home to internationally renown Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Brown University and more.
The Art Providence Holiday Show was created in 2017 to replace the highly successful RISD Alumni Holiday Sale after its successful 23-year run, open applications to all artists working in the included categories, and extend the show to two and a half days. The inaugural show (in it's 'Art Providence incarnation') was a success, attracting thousands of attendees and a talented, diverse group of artists, half of whom were RISD alumni.
New this year is the Early State Artist Program (ESAP), which is an emerging artist program, for artist who've been selling their work in public forums for less than 5 years. Up to 24 artists whose work is accepted will benefit from shared booth space and a reduced fee for participation ($350 per artist versus $600 for regular booths). Details can be found in the Show Prospectus on Juried Art Services.

The Art Providence Holiday Show will be publicized in a variety of regional print, radio, and digital outlets including the following: 
  • Local and regional advertising and public relations including but not limited to outdoor, print, radio, digital, e-mail blasts and collateral
  • Bio listing and image for each artist on the show website and in the official online show directory
  • Event coverage on social media sites including Facebook and Instagram
  • 2017's marketing efforts generated over 2.5 million impressions across print, radio, billboards, and digital.

"It was the most beautiful show I've been in. You presented it perfectly, with the ivory, tall backdrops, choice of music, and even the bar..." -DF
"Thank YOU for a delightful Holiday Show. For me it was the last show for 2017, and I not only was joyful for that but completely taken that I was part of such an elegant, beautiful, artistic group of vendors. Everyone I met was approachable and pleasant-- I experienced beautiful things and made new friends. I can't tell you how special you made me feel." -SS
"I would like to thank you on a job well done. This was my first show in RI and I would be happy to do another." -LS
"The show was very well run and of very good quality. You did a very professional job of putting it on and I am glad to hear that the public response to it was very good." - PJ
