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

Gasparilla Festival Moves to Riverfront Park ++ a new initiative

The Gasparilla Festival of Arts in Tampa (Feb. 29-March1) is a beauty. Really fine work lured there for the big prize money ($80,000). You'll find artists there who might not sell anything, but love the prizes. 

Because of construction in its usual location annual art fair, which typically lures more than 100,000 visitors, is relocating across the river to Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park, where attendees can still enjoy a lovely view of the Hillsborough River but with the added resplendence of the Tampa skyline.

Not a big deal, but there is something new this year that might make local artists perk up their ears. The usual exhibitors don't usually include many local artists so this year Festival of the Arts board member Mishou Sanchez initiated the Tampa Bay Local Artists Spotlight, which will showcase Tampa Bay-resident artists who are not part of the juried competition and it will provide an opportunity for exposure to local artists who otherwise would not be able to participate due to financial limitations.

Do you live in the area? This is pretty cool ... learn more about the festival and this opportunity:
