All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee made up of art professionals and design experts. A list of the jury panel members will be released in October on the Artist Project website.
Artist Project only accepts original fine art and does not display craft, decorative arts, furniture, or functional glass / ceramics.
Reproductions including postcards, calendars, posters, and t-shirts are not permitted in the show.
Photomechanical reproductions such as offset lithographs, prints run off a commercial printing press, embellished commercial reproductions or giclee (with the exception of photography / digital media categories) are not permitted.
COLLECTIVES AND ARTIST-RUN CENTRES
Booths may not be shared by artists with the exception of Artist-Run Centres and Artist Collectives (must have an established history of exhibiting or creating work collectively). Collectives are eligible to apply for 10’ x 20’ booths only.
Upon acceptance into the show, you will receive a contract that contains a comprehensive exclusivity clause. We heavily market and promote the fact that the Artist Project is an exclusive art fair. Therefore, we embrace artists who understand and believe in our philosophy and whose work is not available in other shows (featuring more than 30 artists) 30 days before and 30 days after the dates of our event within a 50 kilometre radius of the show.
Artists who reside outside of Ontario are eligible to apply for a $500 Travel Scholarship designed to offset the added costs of shipping and travelling to exhibit at the fair. Scholarship applicants should include a brief document outlining why financial assistance is required.
