Published 11:22 am Wednesday, May 11, 2011

The Arts Council of Henderson County is looking for artists who are interested in demonstrating their craft at the upcoming 52nd annual Art on Main Festival, which is held along downtown Hendersonville’s historic Main Street, October 1 and 2. Hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. both days.

Artists will be required to demonstrate on both days of the festival. The Arts Council is looking for candidates in media such as plein air painting, carving, woodturning, blacksmithing, spinning, weaving and lampwork.

Artists will be juried for this event and should submit three images (CD or prints) of finished pieces. Artists must provide their own 10’ x10’ tent/canopy (white is preferred) and a small charge will be required to cover the Henderson County vendor’s fee. The demonstrating artists, who will also be allowed to show and sell their art, will not have to pay the usual booth fee.
