Our event location, in Palm Beach Gardens, is a thriving family-friendly community close to local restaurants, retail and the baseball spring training facilites.

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.
