Raleigh Arts Festival 2016 – Call for Artists
Each fall, Artsplosure call artists like you who are interested in exhibiting and selling at our namesake festival that is held each year in the third week of May. This year, for the second time in the festival’s 37-year history, Artsplosure: The Raleigh Arts Festival will be three days: May 20-22, 2016.
Deadline: 11 Dec 2015
The early deadline for entries is Friday, December 11, 2015. The final deadline for entries is Wednesday, January 27, 2016.
All work displayed or offered for sale must be of your own artistic creation.
A three-member jury will review and score all submissions and artists will be notified of acceptance or non-acceptance in late February.
At the festival, a three-judge panel awards six cash prizes, totaling $3,500. Over 80,000 people attended last year’s festival, with the main draw being our lauded Arts Market.
