The WPSAF Emerging Artist Committee is seeking participants for the 2015 Emerging Artist Program offered in conjunction with The 57th Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival being held March 18, 19 and 20, 2016. This program is designed specifically for artists who have little or no experience exhibiting or selling their artwork at any venue. Artists who are just beginning their careers in the art world are encouraged to apply. We reserve the right to pre-screen and research emerging artist applicants to make sure they are a fit for this category and that they do not have extensive experience exhibiting and selling their work.
In addition to having the opportunity to sell their work, meet other artists and participate in a nationally recognized festival, Emerging Artists are afforded the following considerations:
With the exception of being ineligible for ribbons and monetary awards, Emerging Artists are treated to the same amenities as all other festival exhibitors. Our judges will jury the Emerging Artist applications in late October and those receiving the judges’ highest evaluations will be invited to participate in The 57th Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival.
Applications for the Emerging Artist Program must be submitted by MIDNIGHT (EDT), SEPTEMBER 25, 2015. LATE APPLICATIONS CANNOT BE CONSIDERED.
