Gold Canyon Arts festival seeking artists

The thirteenth annual Gold Canyon Arts Festival will be held on Jan. 26, 2013, on the grounds of the United Methodist Church at 6640 S. King’s Ranch Rd. in Gold Canyon. It will be open to the public from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

In addition to the art show, there will be food and entertainment. The host of the event is the Gold Canyon Arts Council, a non-profit group presenting the Festival as a free gift to the community.

The Arts Council is currently accepting applications from fine artists representing diverse media such as painting, drawing, photography, woodworking, glass, clay, jewelry, metal, gourds and other fine art media.

Approximately 85 spaces are available for the artists. Each space will accommodate a standard 10′ X 10′ tent. Use of tents is strongly encouraged but not required. The space fee is $50. Last year’s attendance was over 6,700.

Artists are juried to ensure high quality, diversity and suitability for the festival. All artists must submit 4″ x 6″ photographs of their work to the jury before being chosen. This year, artists may submit digital photos of their work by email to artsfestival.13@gmail.com

Application forms and more information are available at GCArtsFest.com

If you wish to apply to participate at the festival, please go to the official website. Deadline for submission is November 30, 2012.
