originality, and creativity. A limited number of artists per category will be accepted to provide a balanced show. Booth space is assigned
based on category and receipt of completed application and fees. Accepted exhibitors must exhibit the entire show. The following information applies to ALL exhibiting artists. Please read carefully before submitting an application. If you are unable to meet our criteria, please do not apply.
