The Columbus Arts Festival jury will choose the Festival artists at a two-day public meeting in February. Jury panelists will review over 1,000 artist applications from across the country to determine the more than 270 who will be invited to participate in the 2014 Columbus Arts Festival.
Artists will be chosen in the following categories: 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Digital Art, Drawing & Pastels, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Leather, Metal, Painting, Photography, Printmaking & Graphics, Sculpture, Wood, and for the second year, a category for Emerging Artists. Each year, artists who wish to be considered for the Festival 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 seeing any personal information. The top scores, allowing for a balanced show across mediums, are invited to participate in the Festival.
2014 Columbus Arts Festival jurors will be listed here when announced.
