Event Summary

The Spicewood Arts Society is sponsoring The Spicewood Arts Festival 2019 (formerly known as the "Arts Round-Up,", a juried fine art festival, on October 26-27, 2019 in Spicewood, Texas.

This is the sixteenth year and it has become a popular show with artists and guests alike. The fine art festival will be held on the grounds of LaCabana Grill which is located at 21103 Texas State Hwy 71. The beautiful oak grove has picnic tables, attractive plantings, a water fountain, a covered outdoor food service area and of course the restaurant itself. Spicewood is a rapidly growing area situated just west of Austin and conveniently central to Johnson City, Marble Falls, Lakeway, and Bee Cave. In addition to its easy access from the very busy Hwy 71, this location is very near to large and growing upscale housing areas.

Central Texas artists working in all 2D and 3D media are encouraged to apply for this very cost effective show. Spicewood Arts Society is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the visual, performing and literary arts in the Spicewood Community. As such, we want to bring excellent art to the community and to support our regional artists. Email: info@spicewoodarts.org , web site: www.SpicewoodArts.org

  The beautiful oak grove of the La Cabana Grill at 21103 Texas Hwy 71 has picnic tables, and sites for artist tents set along paths that wander through the grounds. This is located just 8 miles from Bee Caves and is central to Austin, Lakeway, Bee Caves, Marble Falls and Johnson City. There is easy access from Hwy 71 and there is ample free parking for guests. Spicewood is a fast growing community with active home development of new homes.
  Admission to the show is free, but we do encourage donations from guests to support the missions of the Spicewood Arts Society.
  Quality of work is the only consideration for the jury.
  Our jurors will be selecting high quality fine art that will appeal to a diverse audience. Jurors will view four images plus one booth display along with Artist Statements.
  Your booth or display image should reveal no names and have no people standing in it. If no booth image is available, artist may submit a showing of artworks on display as they will be shown during the show. Jurors will look for a high level of professionalism in such a group image.
  Applications will be reviewed on computer monitors and scored on a scale of 1-10 (worst to best). Each juror will independently review each application without discussion with other jurors until after scores are submitted. Jurors may ask questions of the show director prior to scoring if necessary.
  Some artists who have been accepted to previous Arts Round-Up shows may be accepted based on jurying during that show. Artists who have previously participated in the show will receive preference in the event of equivalent scores.
  Artists who live or produce their work in central Texas, roughly defined as within 200 miles of Spicewood, are preferred when scores are equivalent.
  In making final selections, we strive to keep a balance of art categories. For example we will not have 50% of the artists from the jewelry (or any other) category.
  Artist's must provide their own white tents; sand bags or other appropriate wind resistance is required as a safety precaution.
All of the booth sites are easily viewed by the attendees.
  Each booth space will be at least 10'x10'
  There are a limited number of sites with electricity. No generators are allowed. Maximum is 500 watts per booth.
  Set up is between the hours of 8am and 6pm on Friday. Exhibitors can bring their vehicle to the parking lot to unload. It is not possible to drive to every tent site due to trees and other obstructions. Thus, a dolly or wagon is suggested.
  The ground is fairly level, but be prepared to level tables, and display racks.
  Breakdown is not to begin until 4pm Sunday.
  Exhibitors will be able to park for free within a few hundred yards of the site.
  Security officers will be present during the evening hours (6pm until 8am), Friday and Saturday. You are encouraged to arrive both festival days by 8am to further secure your booth. Spicewood Arts Society, the property owner, and the Festival Directors are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
