Call for Artists
Announcing First Annual Gilbert Fine Art Festival
Saturday, November 13, 2010 from 8 am - 3 pm
Gilbert Water Tower Plaza in downtown Gilbert

Deadline: October 15, 2010

Artists are invited to participate in this first ever event, celebrating Gilbert's 90th Birthday, as well as supporting the future for Arts in Gilbert, to be held Saturday, November 13th from 8 am - 3 pm in Gilbert's charming downtown historic district at the Water Tower Plaza.

This festival is being held in conjunction with Gilbert Visual Artist's League Annual Art show and the town's weeklong Gilbert Days Celebration. In 2009, the parade attendance was estimated at 30,000 - 40,000 people lining Gilbert Road. So this obviously offers a great opportunity for artists to increase their exposure and take advantage of a great number of people who will be enjoying the festivities.

Prospective participants in this event need to submit jpeg images of three examples of their work to Diane Fales: dfales1@cox.net. Artist's work may include any medium but must be original artwork or original reproductions. Please supply contact information including name, address, phone, email address and website if applicable.
To sell work, artists must have a Gilbert sales license, and 15% of gross sales must be submitted to town.

If you are a member of Gilbert Visual Artist League, there is no cost. Non-members are required to pay a nominal fee of $25. Included in that fee, you will receive a year's membership to Gilbert Visual Art League. Our monthly meetings include artists' demos and speakers to educate and inspire our members.

Deadline: October 15th, 2010.

Questions/Info, please contact Diane Fales @ 480-242-4922
Or Jean Smith @ 480-497-0677
