Emerging Artist Applications 

Columbus Arts Festival 

Deadline: January 16 

In addition to our artist application, which is open to national and international exhibitors, the Columbus Arts Festival offers a separate application to local artists who are new to exhibiting at art fairs through GCAC’s Emerging Artists program.

The Emerging Artist program is designed specifically for artists who have extremely limited or no experience exhibiting and selling their artwork at arts festivals. Artists who apply in this category must be residents of Franklin, Union, Delaware, Licking, Fairfield, Pickaway, Fayette and Madison counties.

This program has been designed to help promote Central Ohio artists who are new to presenting their work at festivals. In addition to a lower booth fee Emerging Artists also receive assistance from Festival staff on how to best present their work to the public.

Local artists who wish to be considered for the 2014 Columbus Arts Festival’s Emerging Artist program should apply through ZAPPlication™, an online application tool, by submitting four digital images of their work and one image of their booth display. A jury panel, selected by the GCAC staff, conducts a blind jury process, where jurors review the artists’ images and technical statements without any biographical information about the artists. The top scores, allowing for a balanced show across mediums, are invited to participate in the Festival.

Thanks everybody!

Those of you that attended One Night: Tribute this past Friday know how AWESOME it was, and we here at the Ohio Art League would like to take a moment to thank all of the attendees, members, artists, volunteers, board members, and of course our sponsors for the event.

This year’s theme, Tribute, allowed us to recover past archives and research the foundation of OAL in order to honor all of you that have built this organization into one that emphasizes, appreciates, and preserves local visual arts. The past 100+ years have given us a blueprint on what to keep doing, what to improve, and how to better help our members and the unique art they create.

We are eternally grateful for our dedicated and generous sponsors. In addition to the Ohio Art League’s continuous sponsors, we would like to thank those that contributed to One Night, as well as throughout the remaining year. Without you guys, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

And we could never forget The Columbus Foundation, Greater Columbus Arts Council, Ohio Arts Council, and Ingram White Castle Foundation.

We do our very best to bring artists exhibition opportunities, offer promotions for their work, and keep members updated on any event or what-have-you to progress their artistic career. Thanks to all of those who helped make One Night 2014 a success, and we’re looking at another bright hundred years. Our appreciation is boundless.
