SAF is a family oriented cultural event. Artwork exhibited must be appropriate for viewers of all ages. The SAF committee has the sole exclusive and final authority to determine if any work is not acceptable for display.
To maintain the integrity of the show as a fine art and fine craft show, all works must be original, executed by the applying artist, created by hand and not mass produced. "Buy/Sell" or embellishments on commercial items are absolutely prohibited.
Each artist is required to provide a standard white 10'x10' artist's tent. Spaces of approximately 12'x12' will be provided for each tent. All spaces are on streets and tents must be secured by weights only as wind can be an issue - no tent stakes are allowed. Tent canopies may extend out, but presented artwork must be within or hanging from the tent.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 14, 2012
