ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists and craftspersons who exhibit original fine arts and crafts. Fine arts and crafts, for the purpose of this exhibition, are defined as:

FINE ART: original, creative, beautiful work that is considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness.

FINE CRAFT: creative work that is hand made, original, functional, beautiful, and well-made with few or seemingly no defects or flaws.

*Kits, molds, and pre-assembled goods will not be considered.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS: Exhibitors are selected, in part, by the photos they provide, therefore quality photographs are important. The following items MUST be included to be considered for acceptance:

• Completed application - returning vendors are not required to submit an application fee
• Artist statement and brief description of work
• FOUR photographs of current work (with title, medium, size, price, and date completed)
• and ONE photo of your indoor booth display.
*You may email images in .jpg format

Artists are expected to remain at their booths or provide a knowledgeable attendant as The Mabel does not provide booth sitters. Exhibitors are responsible for loading in, setting up, and loading out all display materials and artwork. Display locations will be pre-assigned. Exhibitors must keep their displays within the assigned space. Take down of displays on Saturday may not begin prior to 5:00 pm.
