Rules/Regulations

PARTICIPATION RULES: Please note, we will be monitoring during the event to ensure all booths are in compliance with the following. Non-compliant booths may impact your jury score for future events. 

Artwork must be original, handcrafted work made by the artist(s).

Artists may only show work in the categories in which they were juried and accepted.

Artists may not exhibit or sell the works of other artists.

Artists who work cooperatively on their pieces (like many hot glass artists) may apply under their business name with one artist as the contact person.

Artists must personally attend their booths throughout the show.
Only US or Canadian-made reproductions are allowed in the categories of 2-D and photography; however, such reproductions cannot be more than 50% of the work displayed or offered for sale at the event. 

Artists are expected to comply with all applicable regulations and the NWAA artist agreement. 

 

JEWELRY: Jewelry is an extremely competitive medium. Please note the additional specific standards below. 

All jewelry must be both designed and made by the artist (no reproductions).

All jewelry work displayed must be of the same quality shown in the juried images.

Commercial components (beads, stones, pearls, etc.) simply strung/assembled or twisted on wire will not be considered. (Bead weaving will be considered)

No more than 50% of a piece may consist of commercial findings. The major impact of the piece must be the original work of the artist.

 

BOOTH SHARING:
Artists may share a booth, as long as each artist has applied individually and has been juried and accepted. When sharing a booth, one artist has to be responsible for the fees associated with the booth being shared.

BOOTH SUBLETTING: Booth subletting is not allowed. 

FIREPROOFING REQUIREMENTS:

The Seattle Fire Department has become much more strict in the past two years. YOU ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO FIRE-PROOF YOUR FABRICS ON YOUR OWN.  We don't want to have to remove you from the show because the fire marshal won't let us open the doors until your non-compliant materials are gone. Please go to the links below.  Call or email us if you have questions.

Spring booth prices reflect the inclusion of electricity and the pass-through of an additional fee charged to NWAA by the City of Seattle for our indoor shows of 10% of the booth fees we charge artists.  This fee is in lieu of assessing artists 10% of their show sales to be paid to the City.  NWAA management negotiated this on artists’ behalf for our 2017 indoor show season to assist in keeping artists’ show costs as low as possible.
