Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Saturday morning of Arts Festival in State College, PA, is a special time for Artists, Jurors and the Prize Sponsors.
9 am sharp. An air of anticipation. A gathering of artists wondering ... "will it be me?"
The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts awarded more than $17,000 in prize money in 23 awards to our top Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition Artists in 2017.
Each of these award winners will also be invited artists next year, bypassing the rigorous jury process to choose the 300 or so artists from the nearly 1,000 applicants to the 2018 show.
Jeweler Wayne Werner of Havre de Grace, MD received the Arete Best of Show Award for 2017. The award was presented by former Festival board president Linda Gall. The award is funded by an endowment at the Centre Foundation created by Linda and her husband Blake.
