Event Summary

Join us on August 25-26, 2018 in the City of Lewes, Delaware for the premiere of the Lewes Summer Fine Art Festival.  The event will be held on the grounds of the Lewes-Cape May Ferry terminal.  

The event site is less than 50 miles from both Dover, DE and Salisbury, MD on the Eastern Shore and only a short drive from the numerous beaches of Delaware including Rehobeth Beach and Bethany Beach.

General Information


JURY PROCESS


Jurying is conducted in-house by Paragon staff.   This is a “blind” jury process which means artist scoring is based solely on the images presented without consideration of the artist name, artist location, or reference to additional information such as websites. Juror decisions are based 70% upon the quality of work portrayed in the images submitted for the jury process, and 30% based on your booth presentation. If you do not submit a booth image you will automatically lose 3 points off your final score. Your booth image should not have the artist or any signage with the artist name or business name visible and should represent the setup we will actually see at the event. Images are viewed in a horizontal format, four artwork images and booth slide.  Each art medium is juried separately as a group.
