It’s not too late to apply if you would like an artist booth at the 19th Annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival — due date is Oct. 29, 2012 for the 2013 festival on April 5th through 7th. There is a $30 application fee and the show is juried. Over 200 creative artists are included. The application is hosted through ZAPP.

The annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival® is the signature event of this popular arts-and-entertainment district which is referred to as the SoHo of Dallas.

Check out ZAPP® for calls for artists

ZAPP® (Zaplication.org) is a web utility used by an increasing number of arts organizations to manage entries for shows or booking festival booths for artists. ZAPP describes itself as “a one-stop universal online application system that allows artists to submit and manage applications for participating art shows, festivals, and fairs.” Using ZAPP® is free to artists, but the organizations pay a fee.

For more about the advantages and the process for organizations, see http://www.zapplication.org/license.phtml, For information for artists on how to apply, see http://www.zapplication.org/apply.phtml.

For the artist, ZAPP® is a treasure trove of opportunities. Because the listings are so extensive, finding information can be a challenge. There are several ways to search: 

  1. The Event Calendar, which shows calls on a calendar format by application deadline. Once you find an interesting possibility, you then go to the Participating Shows for more information.
  2. The Participating Shows listing, which displays brief information with dates and links (see example below): 

Art in the Square 2013 | Southlake
Southlake Town Square
Texas
Central Region
Application Deadline: 11/7/12
Show Dates: 4/26/13 – 4/28/13

View More Info– Apply to Show

Finding a particular show or shows in an area can be difficult, since there is no simple search feature. The Participating Shows can be sorted alphabetically by name, chronologically by application deadline or show start date, or geographically by region. The Texas shows describe themselves variously as “Central Region” or “South West Region” or even “South East Region”. Region is not selectable, but is an alphabetical sort, so it is somewhat crude.

To do a simple search, select one of the ways to sort, then use the Search feature of the browser you are using. The command is usually Ctrl-F (for find) on most browsers. Type in what you’re looking for: state name, city name, region, or event name.

Here is a listing of Texas shows on ZAPP® found by this search method:

No jury, no worries. We have both the Front and the Back Galleries, so plenty of room for everyone, so there are no size limitations. The All-In TAC Show will open with a reception on November 9, 6 – 9PM. You must be a current, paid-up member of the TAC to participate, but you can renew or join on the spot. Bring your work in to the Fort Worth Community Arts Center on November 1st or 2nd between 8:30AM and 7:30PM. Let’s see some new stuff; let’s see some old stuff you’ve never put out there.  Questions?

Kessler Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair call for artists

Call for Artists – The 2012 Kessler Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair in Oak Cliff

The tenth annual Kessler Pumpkin Patch and Street Fair benefiting The Kessler School and Kessler Park United Methodist Church will be held in Oak Cliff on Saturday, October 6th from 10 am til 4 pm on the school and church lawn at 1215 Turner Ave. in Dallas. 

It is a fun-filled day offering many fun activities, including carnival games, face painting, pony rides, bounce houses, a fall portrait station, an array of musical entertainment, a huge pumpkin patch, beautiful fall mums, delicious food from local vendors, as well as various artists and business vendors from the Oak Cliff area. This annual event draws a substantial number of people from the community and beyond. However, we are very eager and hopeful to increase our artist presence. Therefore, we are reaching out to ask more artists to join us by securing a booth, bringing your creative endeavors and increasing our artist participation. We guarantee it will be a fun day, and you should definitely see some traffic. We have had years when we have seen more that a thousand people attend this event. We are working hard to better promote the street fair portion of the event and are hopeful to draw more people who might not necessarily want to play, but who love art and love to shop. 

We have the support of local artists Larry Pile, The Kessler Craftsman and Lugina Stanley of Blue Dream Glassworks, as well as Julie McCullough and everyone at Make & Made and Indie Genius. We hope to add many more names to that list.

The booth fee is $100.00 if you commit by September 28th, and increases to $125.00 after that date.

 If you are interested, please contact Christy Black, event co-chair at 214-288-1921. http://www.thekesslerschool.com/fundraising-events.php?id=2
