Southern California's Premier Summer Art Festival Destination
Exhibit at Art-A-Fair Festival
You are cordially invited to submit your application for the 48th annual Art-A-Fair Festival, one of three premier art shows held each summer in beautiful Laguna Beach, California.

Art-A-Fair is a membership organization and an artist cooperative. As an exhibiting artist/member you will become an integral part of the show operations. Artists work a designated six-hour work shift per week and must attend a training session for the shift. There are three mandatory meetings throughout the year.

Eligibility
  • Artists may submit only their own original work.
  • All media are eligible for jurying and artists may jury with more than one.
  • Three (3) works are required of each medium for jurying.
  • Artists may jury artwork in person on jury day or by mailing in your application and digital files.
  • No commercial agents, dealers or manufacturers may enter.

Jurying
A jury entry will be judged for eligibility based upon quality, originality and presentation. Anonymity is maintained during the jury process.

The jury consists of professional fine artists and master crafts-persons. They look for excellence in conception, execution and presentation, with the expectation of high levels of creativity and technical competence.

An appropriate balance for the entire show is considered when determining the number of artists invited for each medium. All decisions regarding the selection process are made by Art-A-Fair, Inc. All such decisions are final.

Fees
A non-refundable jury fee of $40.00 per medium (3 physical pieces or 3 digital images) is required for each submission. Artists with 3-dimensional work may submit up to 3 images per each piece.

Notification
Artists who have hand-delivered their work on Jury Day will be given their jury scores and Notification of Acceptance or Non-Acceptance at Pick up, which is between 4 and 4:30PM. Art-A-Fair will not be responsible for artwork left after 5PM, and there is a $10 charge for late pick up. Mail-in submissions will be notified in writing within two weeks after Jury Day.

Accepted Artists
A non-refundable booth deposit of $200.00 and a $35.00 membership fee are required within 30 days for accepted new members. Balance of booth payments are made monthly.

Artists accepted on Jury Day may reserve their place in the show by paying the required deposit and membership fees at that time.
