Hello Artist!

Each year Buffalo Creek Gallery hosts an Art Show on the beautiful Court Square of Uptown Shelby. Unfortunately, we were not able to have Arts on the Square last year due to Covid-19. We understand how hard the last year has been on artists, especially those that attend shows as a way to sell their work. So this year we are working very hard to make a show that celebrates the resilience of artists and small businesses!

2021 is a year of possibilities and we want to celebrate artists like you! We are planning to have Arts on the Square on June 26th. We know thing will be tentative as the pandemic is still affecting events in NC and how we go about our daily lives. We are going to give it a go safely!! We will continue to watch the numbers and follow the state mandates.

Here are the things you need to know:

  1.  You are an artist and we want you to submit this application for our show! This is an arts/craft show so please have original work.
  2. We know 2020 was hard on artists so we have reduced the registration fee as low as we can go to $35. Due to constant changes with Covid, we will wait till June 15th to deposit the registration fees just in case we need to do refunds.
  3. We will require our artists to be as safe as possible. Masks will be required. We will have other safety procedures in place such as hand washing stations, hand sanitizer, signage, etc. Together we will do everything necessary to make this a safe event. If this is a problem, this may not be a show for you.
  4. The Cleveland County Arts Council plans to have a “micro” music festival that day as well. The addition of music makes the day extra special and brings more people out to the event.
  5. This art show has traditionally been a judged show with cash prizes award. We hope to be able to continue this tradition even with the reduce application fees. The awards go to Best Booth Design, Best 2-D Art and Best 3-D Art.
  6. Buffalo Creek Gallery will be celebrating 15 years of bring art to Uptown Shelby! We hope you can celebrate with us and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Please considered participating in this amazing show! The Uptown Shelby Court Square is a beautiful place for a show with shade trees and plenty of room to spread out!! Together we can make it great!  Spread the word amongst your artist friends!!
