THE APPLICATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR 2023
Any fine artist or fine crafter who meets the following qualifications:
*note: jewelers who string together premade items, or clothiers who buy pre-made clothes and dye them will generally be scored lower than artists who create everything by hand themselves.
Artists must fill out our ZAPPlication and pay the non-refundable Jury Fee of $30, March1 – May 10. The application will require: FIVE high-quality images of your work and ONE of your booth, an average price point for your work, and a short artist statement. Artists will be notified of their application status via email by June 1.
WHAT DOES THE JURY LOOK FOR?
The jury will look at the quality of your work, craftsmanship, originality, subject matter (when applicable), booth design and decor, and overall fit and feel of your work with this family-friendly show. We work hard to curate a selection of work that is beautiful, fun or funky, and ALWAYS well-made.
The photos you submit of your work and booth are very important.
Every artist should be prepared to show photos or a video of the step by step process if the Fine Arts & Crafts Market Director asks to see them at any time. The artist’s face would need to be in the photos/video and the photos would need to show the process from the beginning to the end. If requested, artist would need to provide enough pictures so that it is clear that the work is in fact being created completely by the artist applying to be in the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival. We respect our artists and do not allow workshopped or buy sell items in the festival.
Entries will be considered if the submission falls within the following categories. If you are not sure, please contact festival organizers for clarification.
