Saratoga Rotary Art Show
Jury and Selection Process

Artists who wish to exhibit in the Show are asked to present samples of their art work for judging through our online form. Work must be representative of art to be offered for sale at our Art Show. You will need to submit 4 jpeg images of your art and 1 image of your booth or space set-up. The application fee is $25. All artists are welcome.

A panel of Jurors selects participants for the Show. Exhibitor selections are based on quality of workmanship, originality, and artistic conception. We strive for balance in our Show, with Artists representing various categories. All art submitted in a category is judged together after the application deadline has passed. Judges are not aware of the date of application or the artist's name.

The top scoring Artists are invited to participate in the Show. Selections by the Jury are final. Award Winners from previous years, and exceptional local and national Artists, are asked to the Show by invitation. A wait list is selected from the Juror's scores in each medium and invited as cancellations occur in that particular category.

  • What Jurors are Looking For:
    Original art is expected. A minimum number of pieces offered for sale may be prints, copies, or from a common mold or pattern. Only art handcrafted by the Show Artists can be exhibited and sold.

    If your art pieces vary significantly in value you should submit samples that differ in value. For example, if you sell several pieces at $50 and a few at $5000 - submit samples of each level.

    Our application asks for prices and dimensions. If you don't give us this information it will be more difficult for the jurors to evaluate your work.
  • How will I know if I have been selected for the Art Show?
    Notification of results will be emailed by February 5, 2014. Telephone notification will not be provided prior to email notification under any circumstances.
    We will include acceptance and payment instructions in our notification. Artists' acceptances, accompanied by the entry fees, must be received by March 7, 2014. All application fees are non-refundable. For an explaination of our fees please click here. The Show will not be responsible for post office delays or deliveries.

I still have a question. Who should I contact?
