Please note that you will need a separate ZAPP profile for each cateory you enter, but you may repeat the booth slide. Each category is juried separately. If your work is not accepted into one of the categories for which you applied, you may not show this work in your booth. On-site jurors will be present at the festival to ensure the quality of this process. Exhibiting work that was not juried in to the Art on the Commons is grounds for removal from the show.Art on the Commons is a renowned fine arts and crafts festival with high standards for participants. Artists are selected to participate each year through a jurying process, with criteria focused on craftsmanship, originality, diversity and artistic professionalism.

An artist statement and a description of materials and technique of no more than 200 characters is required. Artists are encouraged to enter a description of material and technique that is concise and explains the body of work.
Acceptance notification will be made by May 5, 2017. Rosewood Arts Centre will send e-mails to all artists informing them of their status along with contracts to invited artists. The status of each artist will also be posted to his or her Zapplication account. All communication will be done by email.
Booth Fees are due on acceptance to the Festival. Booths not paid in full by the deadline of May 15 will be considered available and offered to an artist on the waiting list.
Because of the limited number of booth spaces available, the jury will select artists for the wait list, depending on the category of media and jurying criteria. Any withdrawals from the festival will prompt the Art on the Commons staff to contact the waitlist for the jury's first selection for that category.
Only fine arts and fine crafts will be considered for display. All works must be of original design and produced by hand. No kits, handicrafts, or manufactured items will be accepted for jurying or displayed in the booths. Only individual artists may submit work. Submissions by retail outlets or galleries are not eligible. Reproductions relating to your original artworks, such as stationery, cards, giclee prints, commercially produced fabrics and/or tshirts, etc., may not exceed 25% of the total work on display. The Art on the Commons committee retains the right to request the removal of work not meeting the quality and standards represented in the juried images or the eligibility requirements.
All images submitted for jurying must represent recently produced work (within the last two years) that will be offered for sale at this festival. Artists may display work only in the media categories in which they are accepted. All work exhibited must be comparable to work shown in submitted images. Exhibiting work that was not juried in to the Art on the Commons is grounds for removal from the show.
We require all artists to submit an additional booth image for the jury review process. The booth image shows the jury your body of work, provides dimension and scale, and shows overall continuity and presentation of your current body of work. If available, please use an image from an outdoor show. Booth images may not be manipulated in Photoshop or other computer program, may not contain the artist or studio name and must show the entire booth, not just a portion. Booth image should be exclusively representative of the product/merchandise that will be brought to the Festival – works which are not juried into the festival will not be allowed to be sold.
Rosewood employees are not eligible to participate as vendors at Art on the Commons.
Artists with a history of not appearing on the day of show without notification will not be eligible for jurying.
A two-person partnership exhibiting one media category may qualify as a single exhibitor if this is explained at the time of application (please see questionnaire portion of application). If more than one artist wishes to share a booth, each artist must submit a separate entry form in each respective media category and four images of his/her artwork, plus a booth image, as well as the completed entry form. Shared booths are limited to two media category entries.
