The OLD TOWN ARTS FESTIVAL welcomes all artists in any fine art or fine craft medium, exhibiting his or her own handmade work of art. There are no quotas in any medium however the jury will be instructed to do their best to select a well-balanced show.
 A maximum of 30 artists will be accepted after a competitive jury process.
This year's theme is Earth Elements: Fire, Air, Water, & Earth.
Please make sure that work submitted to jury reflects the theme.
Priority will be given to local artists who live and work in the Verde Valley region, with secondary priority given to all other Arizona artists.
All art must be original in concept, design, and execution. We seek quality, originality, and creativity.

  I think these two are a little too much.  You have made it very clear the work must be by the artist and original.
Reproductions are allowed, but the artist must fill the majority of his/her booth with originals and one of a kind art.
Artists may only show work in categories and body of work selected by the Jury.
All work exhibited must be of the quality, category and body of work shown in the images juried.
Any artist who exhibits work significantly different than what they were juried in with will be made to remove the different items, will not be invited to participate in the future, and may be required to forfeit their booth fee and leave the festival.
Booths may not be shared, without prior approval and application by all represented artists.
No more than two artists may collaborate on work or share a booth.
Both must submit the application and contract to exhibit and be present at the Festival.
All exhibiting artists must provide or rent their own booths & display materials.
Booths must be white and 10 feet x 10 feet.
Booths must be properly weighted and canopies may not extend off the front of tents any further than 3 feet.
