Capital Pride Art Fair

June 4, 2012

The Capital Pride Festival is excited to announce that we are now accepting submissions from all LGBTQ artists in the greater DC area for the first Capital Pride Art Fair at the Capital Pride Festival, Sunday, June 10 2012, from 11 am to 6 pm. The Festival Art Fair will present 12 to 14 artists showing their work in one tent in the Arts Stage Area. The artist’s space will include a wall of which you may use an 8’ section for hanging artwork. Artists, or their representative, must remain present at their space for the duration of the festival to ensure the safety of the artwork. Capital Pride will not be liable for any damaged work.

To submit their work, artists must fill out the submission form on the Capital Pride website and provide their price range, number of available pieces, samples of their work (via JPEG sent to ArtFair@capitalpride.org or website), and contact information.  The Community Art Fair will accept submissions in any medium and format, and is especially interested in including interactive artists. The fee for commercial artists is $50 for 7' x 10' of display space; a limited number of free spaces are available for non-commerical (emerging) artists. Artists may also be interested in donating work to the silent auction held at the Hero’s Gala. Please check the box on the submission form to learn more about this opportunity.
