As a Juried Artist applicant, your work will be judged against all other participating applicants in the categories of Accents, Art to Wear – Fashion, Art to Wear – Jewelry, Mixed Media, Leather, Metal, and Woodworking. Only 100 artists will be selected through this initial jury process to display their work on a pedestal at the Western Design Conference Exhibit + Sale. Acceptance notification: April 5.
$19,100 in cash awards are presented annually. Please present photos and descriptions that best depict the custom, handcrafted, and unique attributes of your FUNCTIONAL ART.
If you are accepted to show your work at the Western Design Conference, our expectations are that you will show a piece on your pedestal that has not been previously displayed to the public. Booth space is available for additional work.
