JURYING (SELECTING THE ARTISTS)
The Art Bazaar jury is made up of volunteers - artists and crafters and shoppers just like you. Because we have more applicants than space in the show, the jury chooses Art Bazaar artists based on space availability, category, need, quality, uniqueness of product, past participation, and web presence. If you were not accepted into a past Art Bazaar event, we encourage you to apply again. The dynamics and needs of a show change every year, but we cannot offer specific feedback.
Submitting an application and paying the non-refundable $15 application fee does not give you automatic entrance into the Art Bazaar. It affords you the opportunity to be considered for participation in our event. The jury is made up of local artists just like you who do their due diligence in looking at every single application and considering every single artist who has applied to be in the show.
