I hope that you and your family are taking care during this very trying time. Since the second week of March, our world has made drastic changes. Someone you know or love may be experiencing significant hardship, personally, professionally or financially. We are all impacted by COVID-19.
Our biggest dilemna is not knowing when we will come out on the other side of it. In the meantime, please stay strong, take all preventive measures and be compassionate towards our friends, neighbors, and fellow artists. The art show world is resilient. Please hang in there and we will all be back.
Our staff is hard at work holding down the fort and working on upcoming shows. Applications are currently open and being juried for shows through December 2020. After invited, you may secure your space with a $50 deposit and the balance is due 30 days prior to the show. We continue to offer booth fee credits or refunds for shows cancelled due to COVID-19. If we need to cancel a future show due to COVID-19, you will have 2 options: (1) Booth fee will be credited and can be used toward another show that you have been accepted to in the next two years; (2) Booth fee will be refunded. If we are able to reschedule the event to a new date, you will have the option to participate on the new date and not pay an additional jury fee.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, as soon as we know that an event will be cancelled, we will immediately notify exhibitors and continue to keep in close communication. The safety of our exhibitors, staff and patrons is our number one priority.
Our 2021 schedule will be announced soon and most shows will remain on the same weekend dates. Several exciting new venues will also be announced.
