All work must be original, made by individual artists, and executed by hand or with the use of appropriate tools. Artists may sell original work and reproductions (prints) of their own original work to the public the day of the show. Reproductions should be clearly labeled as such.
Artists must be on hand to sell their own work, and demonstrations at the event are highly encouraged. Please note on the application form any special requirements needed for demonstrations (e.g., electricity, running water).
Image Submission Standards
Artists should send three images of their artwork to be considered by our selection panel. Artists new to the show should also send an image of their typical booth set up if possible. Images may be sent by:
E-mail: addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org: (Send image files or link to image files jpeg format.)
US Mail: Send a non-returnable form of storage such as a flash drive or CD. (jpeg)
Each image should be labeled with the artist’s name and a number that corresponds with the description provided on the application form. (Example: LizSmith_image2.jpeg)
If images are submitted on a CD, the CD should be labeled with the artist’s full name and the media category (categories for which the images are to be juried). Images of accepted exhibitors may be retained for publicity purposes. The Fenimore Art Museum reserves the right to reproduce images of the work of accepted artists for publicity purposes.
There is a $25 non-refundable application fee. To remit payment, please contact Barbara Luhmann at (607) 547-1461.
Judging for awards will take place the day of the festival. Winners will receive prizes at our awards ceremony.
Judges will review the entirety of artwork.
Judges’ decisions will be based on:
1. Museum quality
2. Interpretation of color
3. Relationship to regional beauty theme.
