Guidelines for Exhibiting at ArtWalk 2024

The following guidelines apply to your participation in ArtWalk:

  1. All artworks must be originals, we do not allow reproductions or greeting cards.
  2. The majority of your artworks must be new works that have not been shown at ArtWalk before.
  3. Choose from two sizes of display space: 100 square feet for $100 or 200 square feet for $200.
    • We will try to meet your space requests; however, space is limited; decisions will be given in the acceptance letters.
  1. The spaces may vary in configuration, e.g. 10 x 20 or 8 x 25, etc. to be determined by lay-out plans.
  2. Every artist who applies to ArtWalk will be juried every year.
  3. There will be one Jury Processes that will include all general Artists, Groups, Galleries, Photographers, and Fibre Artists.
  4. A 10% commission fee will be paid on all sales.
  5. You may handle your own sales, or may use our central Sales Table. If you are handling your own sales, we ask, and trust, you to report your sales accurately.
  6. You must plan a good quality display space. The number of artworks that may be displayed in your space is your choice, however, we encourage you to create a Gallery-like display, without overcrowding the art.
  7. We encourage you to plan your display space in advance, creating a display using the supports/panels/easels that are suitable for your own artworks. No structures may be higher than 8 feet. Refer to 'For Artists' on the website for some examples and guidelines for creating an effective display of your artworks
  8. You may request the use of some of the grid panels that we provide at no cost. However, ArtWalk has a limited number of grid panels to share among all requests. Typically, we can provide up to 6 grid panels for each artist requesting them.  Each grid panel is 2’ x 6’.  Include your request for grid panels on the Artist Exhibition Form that will be sent to you if you are selected by the Jury Committee.
  9. The ArtWalk Committee will provide assistance with your display if requested, and also reserves the right to make adjustments as necessary to ensure your display meets the overall safety and quality expectations of this art show.
  10. Artists do not need to use or reflect the Theme in their imagery. You will be notified of any specific Theme related activities that offer artists an opportunity to participate.
  11. If you are selected by the Jury Committee, you will need to provide the details that will be printed on your exhibition labels by August 10, 2024. Instructions for doing this on-line will be provided for you in a follow-up letter. ArtWalk prepares all labels in order to give the show a cohesive look (exceptions are made for jewelers with many small items.)
