Vendors Needed for 50th Annual ArtFest
July 11, 2014
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union and the Alliance Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the 50th Annual ArtFest on Saturday, September 27 at Mount Union. This year, ArtFest will return to its historical location by the Campus Lakes.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Over the years, ArtFest has featured original art by local artists from various media, which includes painting, photography, jewelry making, sculpture and much more. This year, ArtFest will include two main categories at the event: Fine Art and Functional Craft. The ArtFest committee is looking for fine art in the traditional and modern media (i.e. painting, ceramics, printmaking, photography, etc.) and functional craft that has a specific utility yet it is creative either in its purpose or aesthetic appearance (i.e. soaps, candles, lights, tables, purses, mirrors, etc.). The event will feature artwork that is both on display and for sale.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary for ArtFest, booth rental fees will be waived for 2014 to vendors who register for ArtFest at mountunion.edu/artfest-registration.
The event will also provide local musical entertainment, live demonstrations of artists at work and a children’s gallery. In addition, the Taste of Alliance will feature food from local Alliance businesses. Admission is free to the public.
