Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen

Deadline: January 20, 2012 (POSTMARK)

Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen

Lancaster, PA
Multiple Show Dates (see below)

Application is open to artists and craftsmen nationwide. You do not need to be a member upon applying, but are required to join upon acceptance. You do not need to be a juried member of the Guild.

Entry into our shows is very competitive as applications arrive from artisans who focus on excellence in craftsmanship, resolved design and unique style or voice. Unlike some shows, we will not add booths to meet a quota.

We offer affordable prices for the professional craftsman. For 2012, we’re growing our family of craft shows by adding an event at the prized Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.

Eligibility: Submissions representing the finest quality craftsmanship are welcome. Membership in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen is required (you may apply for membership with the show application).

Jury Procedure: Your five images will be projected simultaneously and scored by a carefully-chosen selection committee. Applicants are not identified to the jurors. Jurors are chosen based on their fine craft expertise and represent a variety of media. For each show, exhibitors in each medium are limited to ensure a balanced show. Only those with top scores are accepted. PGC juried members receive a bonus point.

Payment: All fees must accompany your application.

Images: We prefer digital images (digital requirements). There is an additional fee for slide submissions.
