From Laurie Davis, TN Craft –
Local and regional craft artisans are invited to submit their artwork for the 48th Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair by February 15, 2019. This juried show presents around 200 of the region’s finest craft artists on the lawn in Centennial Park May 3, 4, and 5, 2019.
The Tennessee Craft Spring Fair is open to artists 18 years of age or older who are Tennessee residents, residents from neighboring states (no guild affiliation required!), as well as artists studying at Tennessee institutions. Contiguous states include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia. Also, any exhibitor who participated in the 2018 Spring Tennessee Craft Fair who moves out of Tennessee or its contiguous region may exhibit for this one year only following the screening procedure.
Tennessee Craft Fairs are the premier outdoor events for artists to showcase and sell their work by connecting to the community and demonstrating their craft knowledge. One of two signature fairs, held each spring and fall, the Tennessee Craft Spring Fair is the largest craft fair of its caliber in the region, serving approximately 45,000 visitors in Nashville’s high-traffic midtown park. Through the fairs and a robust calendar of year-round programs, Tennessee Craft continues to inspire future generations of craft artists and collectors.
The 48th Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair offers cash awards including Best of Show ($1000). Awards support Tennessee Craft’s mission of encouraging artists in their work, developing their craft and elevating their career. For more information, please visit: tennesseecraft.org
The Tennessee Craft Fair offers many benefits to participants, including convenient load-in and out directly behind their booth (weather permitting), complimentary breakfast and parking, and 24-hour security, along with professional advertising and promotion. Additionally, each year brings a new panel of jurors.
