Attention artists! The 2012 Art Under the Elms may be 7 months away, but now's the time to apply for a booth. Details and links below from Lewis-Clark State College.
Art Under the Elms is one of the signature events of the month-long Dogwood Festival held in the Lewis-Clark Valley. It is a fundraising event for LCSC’s Continuing Education & Community Events program and attracts more than 12,000 visitors each year. The three-day event features an artist fair with more than 100 artists, an international food court, family fun activities, and live entertainment on two stages.
Artists who want to display and sell their goods must submit an application online through ZAPP at https://www.zapplication.org/index.php As part of the application, artists are required to submit product and booth images of current work, artist statement, and a jury fee. The application deadline is Nov. 31.
An anonymous panel of 5-7 jurors who are experienced in art and have knowledge of the event will judge the applicants and pick the top 100 in December to participate in Art Under the Elms. The artists will be notified in January if they have been accepted or placed on a wait list.
Each booth at the fair measure 10 feet by 10 feet. The cost is based on the number of open sides – one open side is $225, two open sides is $250, and three open sides is $265. Interior vendors have a common area providing 5 feet by 10 feet of additional storage, and vendor booth spaces along the LCSC Library wall have an additional 5 feet of space.
Participating artists enjoy a complimentary hospitality tent, booth sitters, loading/unloading assistance (if requested), and invitation to an artist’s dinner on site.
