Jun 22, 2015 03:45PM ● Published by Steven Jack
The Village of Oswego Cultural Arts Commission is inviting visual artists to apply for Art off the Rails, a new interactive art experience. The event will take place outdoors in Downtown Oswego on Main Street on Sunday, Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Submissions will be juried with prizes awarded in different categories.
Applicants from a wide range of artistic practices are encouraged to apply, including long-standing as well as new and emerging artists. Artist demonstrations are encouraged and all artists may offer their work for sale. No commission fees will be applied to any sales.
All art must be original work by the artist. Prints are acceptable if they are clearly labeled as such. Accepted artists will receive a 10x10 space to exhibit for the fee of $50. Artists who demonstrate during the event will receive a reduced rate of $25.00 for the event. Artist demonstrations must be at least 15 minutes per hour, during each hour of the event.
Accepted artists are responsible for providing their own tables and exhibition items for a 10x10 space. Tents are strongly encouraged as the event is outdoors and can protect you and your art from sun, heat, and rain. If you are demonstrating, it is also highly recommended that you have an assistant in your booth to help you with sales, since demonstrations tend to encourage people to purchase artwork.
The event is rain or shine. A submitted application does not guarantee acceptance. All submissions are due by July 1. To download the application, CLICK HERE.
