The application for the 2009 Three Rivers Arts Festival Artists Market is now available!
New for 2009:
- Festival dates are June 5 – June 14, 2009. The Festival will be 10 days long instead of 17 days. Your feedback helped us make this decision since many artists have commented on the marathon length of the festival! By shortening the Festival, we’ll cut down on confusion about artist location, condense our audience, and be able to maintain excitement about the Festival throughout the entire event.
- Artists can select one 3- or 5-day session. Because we want to include as many artists in a shorter period of time, we are no longer allowing more than one session.
- We’re using Zapplication! In today’s digital age, you’ve told me that finding slides has become more and more difficult. By using Zapplication, you can store a library of digital images of your artwork and apply to dozens of shows all over the country. Zapplication is free to artists.
Deadline for entries: February 16, 2009.Application deadline extended to February 23, 2009. Click here to get started.
