    Emerging Artist Applications 

    Columbus Arts Festival 

    Deadline: January 16 

    In addition to our artist application, which is open to national and international exhibitors, the Columbus Arts Festival offers a separate application to local artists who are new to exhibiting at art fairs through GCAC’s Emerging Artists program.

    The Emerging Artist program is designed specifically for artists who have extremely limited or no experience exhibiting and selling their artwork at arts festivals. Artists who apply in this category must be residents of Franklin, Union, Delaware, Licking, Fairfield, Pickaway, Fayette and Madison counties.

    This program has been designed to help promote Central Ohio artists who are new to presenting their work at festivals. In addition to a lower booth fee Emerging Artists also receive assistance from Festival staff on how to best present their work to the public.

    Local artists who wish to be considered for the 2014 Columbus Arts Festival’s Emerging Artist program should apply through ZAPPlication™, an online application tool, by submitting four digital images of their work and one image of their booth display. A jury panel, selected by the GCAC staff, conducts a blind jury process, where jurors review the artists’ images and technical statements without any biographical information about the artists. The top scores, allowing for a balanced show across mediums, are invited to participate in the Festival.
