Artists sought for Jan. 28 Gold Canyon Arts Festival

Posted

Artists are being sought for the Saturday, Jan. 28, Gold Canyon Arts Festival — a one-day event held on the fourth Saturday of January each year.

Applications will be accepted beginning June 1 and the deadline is Nov. 11. Notification of acceptance will be on or about Nov. 23. Applications are through the ZAPP website – zapplication.org/event-info.php?ID=10408.

“Many of our participating artists call our festival the best one-day show in the state based on turnout and sales. The sponsor of the event is the Gold Canyon Arts Council in cooperation with the Artists of the Superstitions,” according to a release.

This year’s festival will again be held on the grounds of United Methodist Church, 6640 S. Kings Ranch Road in Gold Canyon.

“This venue offers good parking and drive-by visibility. Typically, 85 to 90 artists are accepted to show their work. Previous year’s attendance was about 4,000 during the festival hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” the release states.

Reserved artist spaces are 10 feet by 10 feet; tents are encouraged but not required. Cost is a $25 non-refundable application fee and, if selected by the jury, a $125 artist fee plus the contribution of a piece of your art to support the Gold Canyon Arts Council’s arts education programs.

Artist hospitality volunteers are available to help you find your assigned space and “tent sit” during the day to allow you to take breaks. Restrooms are available inside the church. The festival also features food vendors and musical entertainment throughout the day, the release states.

All artists will be juried into the show. Submitted work will be juried in one of the following categories: painting/ drawing, glass art, photographic art, wood art, clay art, jewelry, metalwork art, natural products (e.g., gourds, seeds) and other.

An artist may submit up to two categories but they may sell the work only in the categories approved by the jury. No brokered/factory produced or imported items are allowed.
