Art on the Wabash is juried each year by a professional member of the art community outside the 14-county area. Criteria include originality and quality. Only work selected by the juror will be accepted to the fair. Artists shall understand that artwork images submitted for jurying may be used for marketing purposes.
A People’s Choice Award will be given towards the end of the afternoon based on attendees voting for their favorite artist on ballots included in the programs.
The juror is greatly aided by good photographs that clearly show the quality of your work.
