2015 Artist Application Open to New Exhibitors

posted Apr 25, 2015, 6:51 AM by GAAF Webmaster   [ updated Apr 25, 2015, 6:52 AM ]

The 2015 Glenwood Ave Arts Fest Artist Application is now available to the public.  

The application was sent out last week to previous participants and we've filled a little more than 75% of the available booths in the last week.

If you've been considering participating, now's your chance.   Complete the online application and watch for the first round of acceptance notifications to go out on May 11.

We look forward to seeing some new artists this year!

Remember: Fest rules require that all new artist applicants exhibit work that is personally made by the exhibiting artist.  

Applications are processed in order of submission, within category.  (For example: we fill and close the jewelry category very quickly due to the number of applicants, whereas a category like sculpture may have availability all the way until the last Fest booth is assigned.  The wait-list is processed in the same fashion.)
