Lakeshore Art Festival 2018 Agreement

All work must be of original design and processed by the artists (“handcrafted”). Artists may not exhibit or sell subcontracted work. Absolutely NO buy/sell. Images submitted must be the only products brought to the show. No reproductions are allowed, including but not limited to offset reproductions, resin castings, injection molded plastics and commercially printed photographs. All work must be safe and non-toxic and fit for its intended use. If any work requires special or limited use, the artist must fully disclose and explain this to the public.

The work exhibited by the artist must match the quality and balance of the images submitted to Lakeshore Art Festival for consideration. The jury reserves the right to reject items during the show, which are in poor taste, or not the quality or media category submitted for review. Exhibitors not in compliance with the rules and regulations will be asked to leave the show immediately without a refund.

Such items as imports, plants, velvet paintings, manufactured or kit items and any commercially or factory produced merchandise from artist shops of any kind are not eligible for entry. Any commercially produced parts used in a work must play a subordinate role and may not be sold separately. Any art brought to the show and not submitted within application will be subject for on-site rejection.

Exhibitors may not display more than a few items that are essentially alike (less than 20% of booth space). Artist should avoid a mass produced appearance to their displays. Joint members must both have a part in creating the work, with one member having registered for the space. The artist(s) must exhibit his/her OWN work. 

No weapons may be exhibited or sold.

Exhibitors who violate the exhibition rules will not be allowed to participate the next year or be eligible for prizes. The Lakeshore Art Festival staff make all decisions regarding rules compliance.


By applying to this show I understand...

That bounced checks will be charged a $25 fee and only money orders will be accepted from exhibitors for future payments. If a money order is not sent within 10 days of notification, exhibitor will not be allowed to participate in event.


That if I have participated in this event in the past, it does not guarantee a spot for the Lakeshore Art Festival. In addition, I realize that booth locations will vary and there is no guarantee that I will be able to secure the same location as in past years.


That Lakeshore Art Festival, the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce or any affiliates shall not be held responsible for loss or damage to property from any cause whatsoever during the period of the Lakeshore Art Festival. Lakeshore Art Festival and the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce shall be held harmless for any injury that may occur to exhibitors or their guests before, during or after the show. I have read the rules and regulations listed above and I agree to abide by them. I understand that violation of the rules may result in immediate dismissal without reimbursement of my booth fee.
