I understand that, if two or more people collaborate to produce the artwork, each collaborator must be listed on the application.

I certify that I am the artist(s) who create(s) the work I sell, and am not a representative(s) or wholesaler(s).  I understand that I must be present for the entire duration of the Art Fair, and that I may not send agents, dealers, or representatives in my place, including spouses, friends, or relatives.

I certify that all work displayed is handcrafted and created by me.  I understand that work created from commercial molds or kits, mass-produced work, and other such items may not be displayed, and that the display of such may result in my expulsion from the Art Fair.

I agree that my booth(s) will be set up by 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 28, with my vehicle(s) moved to the artist parking area.  Furthermore, I understand that I am responsible for the setup, take down, and appropriate cleaning of my booth and booth area.

Should any problems arise, I agree to immediately communicate them to the Crooked Tree staff on-site.

I agree to act in a professional manner, and understand that failure to abide by any of the Art Fair rules or regulations, whether in the application or created thereafter by the committee, or that causing problems for fellow exhibitors or patrons, may result in expulsion from the Art Fair, including ineligibility for judging and awards, and my immediate removal from the Art Fair.  Expulsion from the Art Fair is without the necessity of any written notice, and without legal recourse or right to rebate any portion of the fees paid.

I understand that there will be no refund of fees paid, regardless of circumstance.
