Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
July 23 & 24
Application Deadline: February 1
Geneva, a chic and charming historic town located on the Fox River, will celebrate it's tenth annual Fine Arts Fair in 2011.
Presented by the Chamber of Commerce, the show is tucked along shady streets among 100+ specialty shops located in Victorian-style homes and century-old buildings. A "hands on" kids art area, awards for emerging and seasoned artists along with warm small-town hospitality, offer a picture-postcard setting for this juried art celebration.
Note: Prints, photography, digital art and computer generated art: Prints must be produced by traditional printmaking techniques. The only medium where Giclee (ink jet) prints are allowed is digital photography and computer generated art work. All artists applying to either print, photography or computer generated art must submit a brief description of creative process from start to finish.
Emerging artists are required to fill out and abide by the same rules as professional artists. However the jury fee is waived and if accepted the emerging artists space fee is $100. Please note: emerging artists are considered those artists who have never paid for a booth space at a fine art or craft fair. Each accepted emerging artist will receive one "wall" to display artwork on that is approximately 6 foot high by 8 foot long. 3-d artists will need to supply their own pedestals. A limited number of photography spaces are available.
Jury Fee: $20
Booth Fee: $280
Checks payable to: Geneva Chamber of Commerce
No prints allowed
Ribbon Awards: $4,000
