Because of the number of artists requesting to participate in 2012 and the committee's desire to continue to keep the quality of art high, we are using a new process for artist application.
Artists wishing to participate can apply on-line and send digital
images of their work for the committee to review.
The application for jurying is only $10.
Artists accepted to the event will be notified in mid-January.
Registration is due for only those artists accepted into the event.
We are providing breakfast and a hot dinner for all artists on
Saturday and there will be housing again this year for artists living an hour or more from Chadds ford.
