Do I have to turn in photos of my work to get an artist page on ArtWalk Carlsbad website?
Yes. Without images of your work your application will not be processed and your images will not appear on the ArtWalk Carlsbad webpage. Remember that the images you use on your application, as well as the artist statement and contact information you supply, are part of a database that automatically creates your page on our website after you are accepted, so image quality is very important in terms of showcasing your work.
Why do you need images of my work?
All artists are juried into the event based on whether or not their artwork meets the requirements of this fine art festival. The jury process depends on the viewing of your images.
How many images do I have to provide when applying?
In order to complete the application process, you must provide at least 5 images of your artwork. The images you select to use will be displayed on your artist webpage if you are accepted to the event. You are also required to provide an image of a previous art display. If you do not have an image of a previous display, you may contact the ArtWalk office at 619.615.1090 for assistance.
How many images will appear on my ArtWalk Carlsbad artist page?
The number of images you receive on your ArtWalk artist page depends on how you register. Individual artists may have up to five images on the ArtWalk artist page. The number of tents purchased by a group and the number of group participants, determines how many images are displayed on the group artists’ page. A 10′ X 20′ tent allows for 6 images, a 10′ X 30′ tent allows for 10 images, and 15 images for a 20′ x 20′.
