Dear Artists,

We are excited to launch the 2019 season. Our new Pro Pass makes it more affordable to apply to any and all of our festivals. For more information about Pro Pass, contact Caitlin@amdurproductions.comNew shows including Art in the Park in Northbrook, Illinois, the Affordable Art Sale in Skokie, Illinois and indoor MADE shows in Chicago add to our lineup. ArtZipper.com offers artists free web pages to sell from, and two Free Art Fest Boot Camps offer tips and techniques on how to maximize selling at shows.

We believe it is our role to heavily market festivals, to get the word out to people to come and shop the shows. Last season, we secured more than $500,000 of advertising/marketing for our shows with additional value earned on TV, on radio and in newspapers.

We offer tent, pro-panel rental, valet and set up assistance at most shows. We offer double deals, discounted hotel rooms, booth sitters and more too.

Thanks to all of the artists who have exhibited at our shows these past 36 years. Thank you to our Artists Advisory Board who gives us thoughtful feedback and ideas.

Apply today! Applications are due January 8, 2019. All info is subject to change, so check our website for updates and call us with any questions.

Amy Amdur, President, CEO, Amdur Productions

  1. All artwork submitted to jury, displayed and presented for sale at festivals must be created, designed and made or made under the direct supervision of the accepted artist(s). All artwork shown must be for sale.
  2. An artist may apply in more than one category, but not twice in the same category.
  3. Jewelry created through fabrication and casting is allowed if the original casts are made by the artist.
  4. No commercial casts/molds or production studio work allowed.
  5. No factory produced items may be shown.

  7. Artists must create their work from start to finish.
  8. The Artist certifies that jury images submitted represent their current original work and represent the category and body of art that will be displayed at the festival.
  9. Art collaborators (up to two artists in total) producing a single item qualify as an exhibitor. A collaborator is not an employee or helper. If artists enter as a collaboration, it must be clearly noted on the application and art shown must be signed by both.

  11. “Buy/sell” items are strictly prohibited from all or part of an artist’s booth.

The restriction of buy/sell work is in ALL categories of art at ALL shows.
  12. Multiples: Limited editions of work in which the artist hand manipulates plates, stones, or screens numbered and signed in editions up to 500 are allowed and are an artist’s original body of work. Reproductions by mechanical techniques including “giclee” and “iris” prints must be signed and numbered (up to 500). Artists may display reproductions on up to 10 linear feet of their booth, and at the Port Clinton Art Festival in one bin only.
