CRAFTS WILL BE  ACCEPTED
.  Please call or E-Mail if you have a medium not mentioned, as limited other media
are accepted.  Cash awards and ribbons are offered.    Each space will be approximately 12' x 12'  in order to
accept artists' canopies plus space all around, and may be filled with your choice of display materials.  Actual space
only will be offered; each exhibitor will need to provide all display racks, tables, chairs and other props to
accommodate the exhibit.  SPACES WILL BE ASSIGNED on a first come, first served basis, with consideration for
special needs and interesting presentation, and will be marked for identification.  Set up time will be from 8:00 AM till
11:00 AM; each exhibitor must be ready for the judging and to show by 11:00 AM.  Everyone is encouraged to make
his or her space as attractive and creative as possible. Artists or their representative must remain with the exhibit.  
All artists are expected to stay for the entire length of the show, and penalties may be assessed if the artist leaves
early without prior arrangements made with the director.   No commission is taken by the organizers.   All taxes, to
include a 8% sales tax, are the responsibility of each artist.  All artists are responsible for cleaning up their area.  No
trash must be left!

Artists who have
NOT EXHIBITED WITH ARTS ON THE RIVER PREVIOUSLY must submit three photos, slides or
jpg files via e-mail showing your original work.  Include a self addressed, stamped envelope only for the return of
prints or slides.  Entry fees should be included with the application, and will be refunded only if the artist is not
accepted for the show;  no money will be refunded for no-shows.  There is no rain date -- the show will take place
rain or shine.  The organizers reserve the right to reject any works deemed not appropriate.  The artist releases the
organizers and any sponsors from any damages or injury incurred during the show by the exhibitor, representative
thereof, or to the works exhibited.  NO AGENTS PERMITTED FOR THIS SHOW.  Should the artist cancel prior to the
event, a $25.00 administration fee will be retained.  A late fee of $20 is required after deadline.  Tent space may be
available on a very limited basis, with more than one artist per tent for an additional $15 fee per artist.  Spaces in
these tents, if they are available, will be smaller than those outside.  Tents will be set up and taken down by the
administrators of the event.  Priority will be given to those who are unable to set up their own tent due to injury, age
