Best for high-end traditional work, afro-centric work, larger paintings and sculpture.
The show is held in beautiful Palmer Park and is adjacent to some of the city's best neighborhoods. Residents are professionals with huge homes and great disposable income. Our experience is the shoppers like more traditional images, and afro-centric work also does well. Don't be afraid to bring larger work as many people have substantial historic homes.
The show winds around a pond and runs adjacent to the historic log cabin. Artists are encouraged to get out of the tent and create installations that enhance their work and interact with the natural beauty of the park.
The "entertainment" is art projects and artist demonstrations. Patrons are invited to get their hands dirty. All of this helps to contribute to appreciation and sales.
Why you should be here:
- Limited to 65 artists
- Significant paid advertising and news coverage
- Easy drive up unloading
- Experienced artists friendly organization
- Free parking and RV parking
As with all art fairs by Integrity Shows, artists are juried on a three-year basis, allowing artists to grow with the show. If you are accepted by the jury, you are assured of acceptance annually and re-jury in the fourth year. Of course you still need to apply on time and your work has to be relatively the same. We believe that artists should be able to plan at least a part of their schedule.
