Community Art Fair
ATTENTION ALL D.C.-AREA ARTISTS!
The Corcoran’s first annual Community Art Fair is a juried exhibition and sale of fine arts and crafts made by D.C.-area artists. The fair will take place in the Corcoran’s North Atrium as part of Community Day at the Corcoran, a day-long celebration of art and creativity. A panel of Corcoran College of Art + Design faculty will serve as the expert jurors and will select applicants based on the quality of their work and artist statement.
A link to the vendor application is below. Each applicant must submit an application, which includes a brief artist statement and description of work, and five (5) high-resolution (1-5 MB) images. The images must be representative of the work that will be sold at the art fair. Completed applications should be emailed to Erin Higgins, Public Programs Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline to apply has been extended to September 14, 2012, and notification will be sent on September 21, 2012.
If accepted through the jury process, vendors will pay a $50 booth fee. Accepted Corcoran students and alumni pay a discounted rate of $25. Booth fees are non-refundable. Vendors are welcome to share a booth with one other vendor if they wish.
Booth Set-up: Saturday, October 20, 2012; 7 a.m.–10 a.m. All booth displays must be in place by 10 a.m.
Booth Break-Down: Saturday, October 20, 2012; 3 p.m.–4 p.m.
