Your images must represent work that has been executed within the last three (3) years. This includes the image of your fully stocked outdoor booth. The booth image is very important and needs to be of the highest photographic quality. Be sure your submitted images are representative of the work you will display at the show as we accept NO ADDITIONS OR SURPRISES.
Prints must be "signed and numbered" and limited to an edition of no more than 1000 per image. Any reproductions must be identified and the word PRINT prominent.
Work must be that of artist submitting the application. Artists must be present during show hours.
NO imports, commercially manufactured items, buy/sell or kits are allowed. The TSAF committee reserves the right to reject or eject any exhibitor from the fair.
NO REFUNDS AFTER 03/15/23. | APPLICATION FEE IS NON‐REFUNDABLE.
Standard Booths (10 'x 12'): $375 (this allows for 2' of "storage" behind your booth dimensions of 10' x 10')
Larger Booths (14' to 20' widths): $40 per additional foot. There are a limited number of larger booths/corner booths in designated spaces. Please pay for the additional footage at time of paying for your booth. This is on a first paid first reserved basis.
Note: Extra footage will not be released until after 04/01/23 due to uncertainty of city regulations.
Each exhibitor must provide his/her own display and white canopy. No generators allowed. Booth spaces are assigned at the discretion of the Talbot Street Art Fair Committee.
The fair is set up on a historic city street. Therefore, 6' of the booth's front will be at street level and the remaining 4' will be on the sidewalk. The sidewalk is approximately 3" to 6" higher than the street.
IF YOU PREVIOUSLY EXHIBITED AND WANT YOUR PREVIOUS SPACE, WE WILL TRY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU. If you are unsure of your booth number, tell us "same as last year" and we will research it.
06/16/23 (Fri): 1 pm - 8 pm
06/17/23 (Sat): 6 am - 9 am
If there are concerns about being able to set up in time, email us immediately. Other than committee and booth captains, artists will not be allowed on the streets with their vehicles until 1:00 pm on Friday, as marking the streets is a lengthy process. The neighborhood has been given assurances that they will be able to get out of their garages until this time. Booths must be fully set up by 9:30 am on Saturday for judging to begin.
Security: Booths may be left in place overnight at the artist's discretion. Security will be on duty from Friday afternoon through 7:00 pm on Sunday.
Monetary awards for Best of Show and Best of Medium in all categories.
Total monetary awards: $7,500
