The Festival is held on Center Street in the heart of the historic Village of Lewiston, New York.

The Committee establishes no quota or entitlement by category. Visual artists who create sculptural pieces are asked to apply under the medium used for jurying purposes. Jurying categories are not the same as prize categories.

Painting 1: Works created in oils and/or acrylics.
Painting 2: Works created in watercolors.
Drawing, Graphics, & Printmaking: Works created using dry media including chalk, charcoal, pastels, pencil, wax crayons, etc., or from a fluid medium of inks and washes applied by pen or brush. Printed works for which the artists hand-manipulated the plates, stones or screens and which have been properly signed and numbered as a limited edition may be entered in this category. Digital art applicants may apply in this category.
Mixed Media: Two and three-dimensional works that incorporate more than one type of physical material in their production.
Photography: Photographic prints made from artistʼs original negative that have been processed either by the artist or under his/her direct supervision.
Ceramics: Original wheel thrown, hand built clay or mosaic design work. If multiple pieces of the same design are displayed, the artist must sign each piece. No machine-made or mass-produced work is permitted.
Fiber: Wearable and non-wearable work crafted from natural fibers, including basketry, weaving, tapestry and papermaking. No machine-tooled, machine-screened patterns or miscellaneous forms of mass production are permitted. No factory-produced wearable items, regardless of additional modification or enhancement by the artists, are accepted in this category.
Glass: Glass works that are functional or decorative by design and are kiln-formed or have been crafted by glass blowing, molding or casting. Works may be etched or engraved. No forms of mass production are permitted.
