Artist Applications Now Open For
2019 Redlands Festival of Arts
Redlands, CA–October 22, 2018–Artist applications are open for the , which is a juried art show awarding over $6,000.00 in prizes to talented artists who will come from across the United States over this coming year’s Memorial Day weekend, May 25-26, 2019, from 10 am to 5 pm to exhibit their work in Smiley Park.
More than 60 artists are expected to participate in this open air, juried art show and compete for honors in multiple art categories. This festival, for which there is no admission charge, draws thousands of visitors who want to see and purchase a wide range of art, including paintings, photography, sculpture, glass, textiles, metal, wood, ceramics, jewelry, fashion and furniture.
Interested artists are encouraged to visit to complete the festival artist exhibitor application form. While there is a booth fee for accepted artists, no percentage is retained by the festival from the sale of their artwork.
Shirley Harry, Festival Chairwoman, said, “I’m encouraging artists from Redlands, the Inland Empire and Southern California to apply for this juried show. Our festival visitors love to buy all kinds of art while supporting our student artist grant programs. We also need more festival volunteers to help us. It’s fun to be a volunteer—just ask me or visit our web site for more info.”
A family friendly event, the festival includes a Kids Arts Zone with hands-on fun art experiences, a chalk art competition and this year a new youth art exhibit. The festival also includes special exhibits at the Smiley Library and the Lincoln Shrine along with live entertainment and a food, beer and wine garden.
Steps away from the festival there will be more to see and do at Art in the Park, which will be held on the Eureka Street side of Smiley Park adjacent to the Redlands Bowl and Mission Gables House.
