The Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce invites you to apply to be an exhibitor at the 37th annual ArtiGras Presented by the Hanley Foundation, a two-day ticketed outdoor fine arts festival over Presidents' Day weekend, which attracts tens of thousands of art lovers and collectors. ArtiGras showcases a juried exhibition of gallery-quality art and offers a unique opportunity for visitors to interact with and purchase directly from the artists. 
Patrons are residents of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, along with tourists from around the country visiting during peak season. ArtiGras also attracts top interior designers looking for that special piece for their clients. ArtiGras benefits local charities and utilizes more than 1000 volunteers. Our event location, in Palm Beach Gardens, is a thriving family-friendly community close to local restaurants, retail and the baseball spring training facilites.  
ArtiGras was recently named one of the top 10 fine art festivals in the country and features 285 juried artists along with artist demonstrations, a Youth Art Competition, an ArtiKids children's interactive activity area and live entertainment.
The marketing and public relations efforts last year for ArtiGras had a total value of earned media of $540K with 148 million impressions. 
We want your time with us to be not only profitable but also enjoyable. Artists will receive via e-mail a list of select hotel, tent and equipment rental information.  
During the festival, the following amenities are offered to all artists:
  • Artists' Oasis: provides free water, coffee and snacks daily (Saturday and Sunday) 
  • A continental breakfast 
  • Booth sitters
  • Free and secure artist parking within the festival site

First Place (one in each category): $1000
Total: $15,000.00

During ArtiGras, three judges will select 25 artists in the Fine Art Showcase and give out $15,000 worth of prizes and recognition awards. Judging will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 19. Cash awards and ribbons will be presented on Sunday morning, February 20.

Designed specifically for artists who have no experience exhibiting and selling their artwork at all venues, or extremely minimal experience, if any. The application procedure is the same as the regular show; however, upon acceptance, emerging artists will pay a reduced booth fee.  Artists will be provided a 10'x10' tent with pro-panels and receive mentoring through the Arts Festival. Emerging artists are responsible for tables, chairs and additional display materials. Artists may only apply to the Emerging Artist Program or for the general show, but they may not apply to both.

Artists who are just beginning their careers in the art world are encouraged to apply. ArtiGras reserves the right to pre-screen and research emerging artists to make sure they are a fit for this category and that they do not have extensive experience exhibiting and selling their work.
