The 2014 Medicine Park Art Walk and Flute Festival is Sept. 20 and 21. The event is sponsored by the Medicine Park Economic Development Authority. Last September, we offered $2,000 in sponsor purchase awards. This year, we hope to double that amount. We also invited three great judges to select winners who shared $500 in prizes.
This is a juried show. You may submit samples of your work by emailing three high-resolution jpg photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than July 15. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and email address. An email notification of acceptance will be sent within five days of your submission of three jpg photos. If accepted, you will receive an Artist Acceptance Form, which must be returned no later than Aug. 1. Final entry is accepted upon receipt by mail of your check and your Artist Acceptance Form. Spaces will be assigned upon receipt of acceptance form and fee, with premium spaces assigned first.
Cost for this two-day show is $50. Artists will be responsible for tents or booths, not to exceed 10’ by 10’. Some covered spaces are available on the porches of The Old Plantation and will be assigned to those who do not have tents on a first-come, first-served basis. There will also be space along the sidewalks and around the Music Hall.
As always, we do not charge a percentage of sales. No resale items are allowed. The art walk will be cancelled — with no refunds — in case of inclement weather. Artists may set up booths Friday afternoon after 4 p.m. or Saturday morning beginning at 7 a.m. Set up must be completed by 9:30 a.m. to allow sponsors to tour the show and select purchase awards. Overnight security will be provided Friday and Saturday nights. The Art Walk and Flute Festival are not responsible for loss or damage.

The show will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
