For Artists

Thank you for your interest in being a part of the Celebration.

Information For Artists

The Celebration of Fine Art is a one-of-a-kind marketing tool for artists that combines the best attributes of a gallery relationship with the dynamics of a short-term art show. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual, and very inviting. Artists can talk with potential clients, leading visitors to describe the Celebration as more than an art show, but an experience they can’t have anywhere else. Our aggressive and targeted marketing plan is directed at the most productive audience possible to maximize selling efficiency. As a result, annual sales have continually increased, a trend we expect to continue.

Ours is a juried show that looks for variety as well as quality. This ensures minimal direct competition, so you have the best opportunity for success. All styles and mediums of art are welcome; in addition to painting and sculpture we also have fine crafts such as furniture, jewelry, ceramics, basketry, and weaving. Only handmade work created by the artist is accepted—we do not allow manufactured goods of any kind. Artists who have previously been selected for the show will be juried in the two months following the current exhibit. New artist applications are accepted any time after April 1, with the first jury deadline being June 15 and second being August 15. We add new artists until all studio spaces are filled. Additional details, prices, and other information are in the artist application packet.

Creating Works of Art to Honor the Vibrancy of Nature

There’s no question budding young artists can be helped along by supportive families. That was the case for Leah Rei, who was born in Colorado but raised in Arizona. Her childhood is filled with memories sewing, embroidering, coloring and making collages to pass the time. “I was introduced to art at a very young age,” […]
