The Keller Public Arts Board is seeking six artists to paint or sculpt during the Keller Art Walk event. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020. Artists will be expected to work in their booth space, viewable to the public, for the duration of the event, excluding reasonable breaks for lunch. Artwork created during the event must be appropriate for public viewing and support the family friendly atmosphere of the City of Keller, Texas. In addition to plein air artists, the event will feature a kid zone, live music, and vendors. Artists not selected as plein air artists by the Board may participate in the event with a regular paid vendor spot.
Deadline: 21 Jun 2020
The Keller Public Arts Board will host the fourth annual Keller Art Walk on November 14, 2020 in the city’s recently updated Old Town area. The Board is offering free booth space and a $150 stipend to six artists selected as the event’s plein air artists. The Keller Art Walk is an arts and music festival designed to give local artists an affordable opportunity to showcase their work while attracting people to experience Keller’s burgeoning arts and entertainment district.
Although the Keller Art Walk is open to vendors of all types, all vendor recruitment is directed at artists and the Board sincerely hopes the event can be of benefit to the participating artists. The Keller Art Walk is held in the Old Town Keller West area, located on the west side of U. S. Highway 377 near the city’s border with Fort Worth. The Keller Public Arts Board has sole discretion on booth location for each artist.
Keller Art Walk Plein Air Artists Honorarium
Each selected artist will receive a $150 honorarium on the day of the event. Selected artists will receive booth space, inclusive of a 10 x 10 canopy (optional), at no charge for displaying and selling additional work. Artists’ names and website/social media contacts will be posted on the event website, Facebook page, and on-site signage. Booth space includes set up and tear down.
About Keller Public Arts Board
The Board is committed to making Keller a community that embraces and benefits from the arts. The Old Town Keller area originally developed along the railroad tracks, which served as the impetus for the founding of Keller. Once the site of a bustling train depot, city leaders now aim to establish Old Town as a destination for pedestrian-oriented businesses offering a variety of shopping, dining, and other services.
