Jury Procedure

A maximum of 100 artists will exhibit at the 2017 event. Potentially 50 new exhibit slots in all categories will be determined through the jury process. Artists who exhibited in all categories in the 2016 fair are invited to participate in the 2017 fair.

The jury is comprised of professionals working within the art community. The panel uses a blinded jury process to review a set of four images provided by each artist. The identities of individual artists are not disclosed to jurors. The process, materials, dimensions for each image and artist information statements are made available to the jury. Artistic excellence is the sole criteria for selection of exhibitors. The panel is convened to discuss their rankings and the artists with the top scores will receive invitations to exhibit. High-scoring artists who are not initially invited to exhibit will be added to a wait list and offered the opportunity to exhibit should an invited artist decline to participate in the Fair.
