Artist Booth Information

The FallFair Arts Festival is a juried event. Accepted artists will be allocated a 10’ x 10’ space for their display. Each exhibitor may provide their own 10’x10’ white tent, with appropriate weights to withstand high wind conditions.  Electricity will be provided only if requested on the contract application. Specifics of tent location and set-up will be provided after acceptance into the Fair. The booth fee is $75. Additional booth space can be purchased for $75.00.

 

Guidelines & Requirements

The FallFair Arts Festival is open to all artists within the accepted media categories. Participation in any previous FallFair Arts Festival event does not guarantee acceptance! By signing the application, the Artist agrees that he or she had direct, hands-on involvement with the creation and execution of each piece of work to be exhibited. Collaborating artists may show only their collaborative works – both names should appear on the application. (Collaboration here means artistic, not business collaboration).

  • Images submitted must be representative of the work to be shown.
  • Accepted artists must be present on site during the FallFair Arts Festival open hours.
  • No work from commercial molds, kits, or manufactured work is accepted.
  • Reproductions of 2-D works must be labeled ‘REPRODUCTION’ – not print.
  • Ceramic works must be handmade by the Artist.
  • Photographic prints must have been processed by the Artist or processed under the Artist’s direct supervision.
  • Jewelry must be crafted by the Artist; simple beading and assembly is not acceptable.

 

Reproduction Policy

In an attempt to foster an appreciation for and value of the arts for everyone, including those that cannot afford original work, we believe it is important to offer the public the chance to buy reproductions, hoping that they will move on to original work when possible. This transition is possible only if our patrons understand what they are buying.

Reproductions are an ancillary part of the display and should not exceed 40% of work shown. All reproductions must be clearly and individually labeled as such. No other terms such as ‘print’, ‘off set lithograph’ or ‘giclee’ may be used. Labels must say ‘Reproduction’, framed or unframed. No hand-colored reproductions will be considered ‘original’ works. Violation of the spirit, as well as the letter of the policy will be asked to remove their reproductions.

 

Awards

Artists are eligible for several cash awards during the FallFair Arts Festival including Best of Show and 1st place in each artistic category. Booths will be evaluated the day of the event and awards will be announced the day of the event as soon as the judging is complete. Our 2017 awards (at this time) will total $700.

 

Submission & Deadline

Completed application, images, and the non-refundable application/jury fee of $25 is due by March 15, 2017. Notifications and contracts will be emailed to all applicants in Mid May. Contracts will now be completed and submitted [payment included] Artists must submit the contract and $75 booth fee by May 15, 2017. Specific information about check-in, set-up and the FallFair Arts Festival will be sent about two months prior to the event. Participating exhibitors canceling after July 15, 2017 will not receive refunds for their booth fee.

 

Juror & Selection

Image quality is very important. Applications will be reviewed by FallFair Arts Festival representatives. Along with the selected participants, a waiting list will be established in case of cancellation. Replacements will be made from the wait list at the discretion of FallFair Arts Festival. Acceptance information will not be given over the phone prior to written notifications.

 

Acceptance Policy

Participating Artists may only display work in the media categories in which they are accepted. The work must be comparable to that shown in submitted images. It is FallFair Arts Festival’s exclusive right and responsibility to remove work that is inconsistent or deviates from the style or quality of the submitted images, or is otherwise not in compliance with the rules. In any dispute over FallFair policies, the decision of the FallFair Arts Festival Committee shall prevail. Artists must be present on-site during open hours of the Festival. Assistants are permitted; however, they may not take the place of the artist at the FallFair Arts Festival. Exhibitors may not ‘sublet’ their booth space to any non-collaborating artist.

 

The FallFair Arts Festival goes on rain or shine, except in cases of extreme risk to public safety as determined by the FallFair Arts Festival Committee. There is no refund of fees for bad weather.

 

Advertising Policy

Images of participating artists and wait-listed artists become the property of The Arts Alliance and may be used for archival, publicity, website and confirmation purposes before, during, and after the Festival.
