  1. Hello,
    I applied for the festival in April. I never got a confirmation. Will I get one, or the wait until the decision of acceptance?

    • Hi Ana. I will check that we got your entry. We have to wait until the call closes which is in a few days and then all entries will be judged at once. I can’t say for sure but maybe 3 more weeks and you will hear something.

    Are you accepting jewelry? I create one of a kind, statement necklaces and earnings using semi-precious stones and beads. I use all variations of jasper, quartz, amazonite, jade, turquoise, onyx, coral, genuin and shell pearls, agate, druzy, pyrite, hematite, mahogany, opalite, wood, bone on and on. Also glass, crystals and metals in: silver, brass, yellow metal, bronze, black silver. Not your itty bitty jewelry.

    I know it is a couple weeks late but is it really to late to enter?
    My friend and I really wanted to enter and show what we are able to do. We wanted to express our talents and beliefs and spread awareness for different things that happen in our world.
    Please let me know!

    Hello – will you be notifying potential
    artist applications of their status? Thanks!

    • Hi Jeff. After you submitted your application you should have gotten an email thanking you for applying. Check your spam folder for that email if you didn’t see it. If you didn’t get a thank you for applying, you should email the address on the call page to see if they got it. The email says, the jury results will be emailed after June 19th.

    What type of art is this for? I’m great at origami and crocheting. Is this for selling anything? What goes on here?

    • Original works of fine art are shown such as; paintings, jewelry, mixed media, encaustic art, glass arts, ceramics, printmaking, woodcarving, photography and textile art. All art is for sale. It is a very interesting group of artists that come together to show their creations and people love to come and see the variety and talk with the artists. It often includes some musical arts and children activities.
