Call for Artist!

 The Atchison Art Association is organizing a Fine Art Fair during the Amelia Earhart Festival, which draws an audience of 100,000 on a single day each summer. We welcome you to apply for this wonderful opportunity to show and sell your work!
Our Fine Art Fair will take place indoors, at a building in downtown Atchison, with tables for each artist to present their work. 20 artists will be selected by a jury via online applications. Eligible art mediums include painting, drawing, photography, prints, ceramics, jewelry, glass, woodworking, other decorative forms, and more. This will be a very competitive selection process, so make sure your art is well represented in your application photos. Submissions will be considered by the jury and selected on the criteria of uniqueness, quality, and execution. Selected artists will be featured on Atchison Art Association’s social media platform and in other promotions for the event. Application deadline: May 18th, 2018.
