2016 Call to Artists

PrintWe are excited to announce that applications for the 5th Annual Reinbeck Art Festival are now open.

This year the Reinbeck Art Festival will take place on September 24, 2016, from 9 am to 4 pm. We are turning five!

Location: Both indoors and out, downtown Reinbeck, Iowa with an inclement weather location if needed.

Our “Buy Great Art” drawing is for patrons of the festival. A drawing for a purchase certificate used to buy a work of art at the festival will be awarded every hour. Artists will be reimbursed for any certificates used to buy art at the end of the day.

You may download a .pdf application to fill out and send in. Download application. Images are preferred on disc by mail. If this does not work for you and you would like to email them, please contact Dana at CityAsst@reinbeck.net.

Applications must be postmarked by May 2, 2016. Artists that would like to share a booth only need pay one booth price, which is $25. Each artist still must be juried separately. The jury fee is $10 and the booth fee is $25. It is $40 for a double booth.

After May 2, the fees will increase by $15, so the jury fee will be $25 and the booth fee will be $40.

Last year, we continued to host a quality art festival with amazing artists, dedicated volunteers, and live music. We have an art activity for teen/adults in addition to the children’s art activities. The weather was very cooperative and many artists were happy with the day. 

From our artists:

Very well-organized and publicized. A very positive art show!

 

Very good show!  Everyone was very nice and all aimed to please

We hope you will join us this year.
