Art Show and Sale Application 2021 60th ANNUAL SIOUX NARROWSARTS FESTIVAL Saturday July 31 and Sunday August 1, 2021
The 2021 Sioux Narrows Arts Festival is now accepting applications for our 60th year of celebrating the unique artistic talents of Lake of the Woods and beyond. This annual show will be held Saturday, July 31st and Sunday, August 1st from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Curling Club on Red Indian Road in Sioux Narrows, Ontario. Exhibitors are expected to only display work hand-crafted by themselves and to exhibit for the entire length of the show.
Our festival is a juried show and we invite all artists to submit 3 - 5 photos of their work with their application. Digital photos are preferred if possible. A brief resume may be included should you wish to offer more insight into interesting facts about your specific work. We also invite you to share any connection/history you might have to our Lake of the Woods community. Previous acceptance does not guarantee a booth in current festival.
A registration fee of $75 must accompany a completed 2021 Application Form in order for artists to be juried. Student artists who have not completed high school will only be charged a $25 registration fee. There will be no charge for an artist who is demonstrating only. If you are a festival participant, the Sioux Narrows Arts Council will request payment of 10% of your booth sales after the first $500. This includes all commissioned work that results from the show. If your work is not selected by the jury, or if you withdraw from the festival before July 1, 2021, the registration fee will be refunded. Payment can be made by cheque or e-transfer. (Note that if your registration fee is in the form of a cheque, the cheque will NOT be cashed until jurying is complete and you are accepted). In the event that we are unable to hold the festival due to government regulations, artists will have the option to roll their registration fee over to 2022 or we can issue a full refund.
The deadline for receiving applications is Monday, May 17, 2021.
Successful applicants will be notified on May 21, 2021 by email or phone. We again anticipate being able to accommodate only a portion of applicants due to limited availability of space, and will notify those who have been waitlisted. In the event that an accepted registrant later finds that he/she is unable to participate, we ask that the arts council be informed promptly in order that a waitlisted applicant may be accommodated.
Please return your application form, photos and registration fee by May 17, 2021 to:
Mail: Sioux Narrows Arts Council P.O. Box 90, Sioux Narrows, Ontario P0X 1N0
or by E-Mail: E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any profits from the festival are used to fund art scholarships for full-time and seasonal residents of the Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls Township, as well as to subsidize local art related workshops. We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
The Sioux Narrows Arts Council, by volunteer co-operative effort, commits to supporting and promoting area art and artists via an arts festival and art education within our community.
