Lansdowne Arts on the Avenue Festival – Call for Artists
Lansdowne Economic Development Corporation invites artists and makers to apply to exhibit and sell at the Lansdowne Arts on the Avenue Festival – coming this Fall on Sunday, September 11, 2016.
Deadline: 15 May 2016
The Lansdowne Arts on the Avenue Festival is an expansion of the perennial favorite, the Arts and Music Festival in Lansdowne, and is expected to draw more than 2,500 people to our historic downtown. We’ve moved our popular event outdoors for an all-day festival of fine art, artisan craftsmanship, and live music that now includes local food trucks and children’s entertainment. Artists who have participated in the Lansdowne Arts and Music Festival are encouraged to apply, but we’re also excited to see new faces and new unique handmade items.
This show is juried and artists will be selected based on quality of work, but also diversity of the show. We’d like to showcase many different categories of craftsmanship including ceramics, photography, wood and sculpture, painting and drawing, jewelry, and mixed media. Preference will be given to artists and makers who are willing to do a day-of demonstration of their process.
Artists must provide their own tent, table, chairs, and displays. Please note, this event is outdoors and will go on rain or shine.
Cost: In order to apply, prospective artists must pay a $25 application fee. Once selected, an additional $50 will secure a 10′ x 10′ space along Lansdowne Avenue.
The Lansdowne Arts on the Avenue Festival was established to promote local artisans but has grown to include artists and performers from around the region.
The Lansdowne Economic Development Corporation (LEDC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the revitalization of the Borough of Lansdowne and the community.
