APPLICATION DEADLINE: June 30, 5PM
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists and crafts persons that exhibit original fine arts and crafts. Fine art and fine craft, for the purpose of this exhibition, are defined as:
FINE ART: Original, creative, beautiful work that is pushed out of the realm of functionality other than to provide the function of pure aesthetic. Technique may be refined or raw, and success of technique depends on how well it suits the piece or body of artwork.
FINE CRAFT: Work that is functional, beautiful, well-made with few or seemingly no defects or flaws which inhibit the technique. A craft, in essence, is fully handmade, original, and creative toward its function. Crafts, unlike art, can also be judged based upon feel, comfort, and durability. Kits, molds, and pre-assembled goods will not be considered for acceptance.
