Edgewater Arts Council issues “Call for Artists” for Sept. 9 Art & Music Festival

Artist applications are now being accepted for participation in the 21st annual Edgewater Arts & Music Festival, to be held Sunday, Sept. 9 in Edgewater sponsored by the Edgewater Arts Council. Artists can compete in the $3000 juried art competition providing $500 prizes for:

  • Best Art
  • Best Photography
  • Best Craft
  • Best Fashion

Judges will select a “Best of Show” $1000 winner from the participants.

Artists must send in applications no later than Sept. 1 to participate.

Applications may be downloaded at www.edgewaterarts.com .  Full instructions are on the website.

Sale of artists’ work is actively encouraged.

First-time artist participants must submit samples of artwork online and a $20 application fee is charged.  This fee is waived for returning artists.

All artists must pay an $80 booth space fee.

Student artists are encouraged to participate, but they must also submit an on-line portfolio to LMGrasz@aol.com.  One to three students may share the $80 booth space fee, but they must all participate in the shared space.

Again this year, the Festival will include a “Children’s Corner” with school children participating in various art-inspired booths and activities.

The Festival offers a variety of music performers playing on the main stage during the Festival.

The Festival runs a free shuttle bus between Edgewater Commons and Old River Road during festival hours from 11:00 – 6:00 PM. So attendees are encouraged to park at Edgewater Commons, visit a concurrent antique car show sponsored by the Edgewater Cultural & Historical Committee and then shuttle to the Arts & Music Festival.
