We are currently seeking artists interested in displaying artwork in a venue in downtown Creemore the weekend of Sept 29 & 30. Please note that we ask artists to engage with the public at the display venue throughout the weekend as this is an aspect of the festival that is especially meaningful to visitors. The venue owners cannot speak to your art in the same way that you can.
Deadline for your expression of interest is July 15, 2018.
Purpose of the event:- To engage the village in the Creemore Festival of the Arts- To attract festival-goers to Mill Street with exciting work by artists and artisans- To enhance the festival experience for visitors through interactions with artists at each venue- To provide a platform for art sales and connections with potential art clients- To attract an arts-focused clientele to Creemore to support the business community- To promote Creemore as a creative, charming and inclusive destiny- To create an opportunity for artists to receive valuable public feedback on their work

Registration:We are not charging a registration fee this year. Instead, we ask that both the venue and the artist become members of Purple Hills Arts & Heritage Society, if they are not already members. Membership information can be found here: http://phahs.ca/2017/11/27/membership-2018/
