Tour Dates: Saturday May 9 - Sunday May 10, 10am - 5pm
Application Deadline: January 10, 2020
We are looking for artists working in all media interested in participating in the West Hamilton Artists Tour. This tour will feature artists who live or have a studio in West Hamilton as well as artists who live outside the area who are applying to be guests on the tour. Priority will be given to those artists who excel in their chosen media and create work that is original, high quality, and is expertly executed without technical faults.
The website for the tour is www.westhamiltonartiststour.com
Artists must reside in West Hamilton or be an approved guest artist from Hamilton or within Ontario.
All artists, including guest artists, will complete an application form and have their work juried. Selection and location of guest artists is at the discretion of the Organizing Committee.
All work for sale must be original work by the artist, designed and handcrafted by the artist.
Items made from commercial kits, plans or patterns are not allowed. Ready-made components are acceptable only where their importance is subordinate to the skill and design contributed by the maker and where their use is clearly appropriate to the nature and design of the work. Articles made from molds are acceptable only where the mold is the design and product of the artist or where the mold is evidently subordinate to the maker's creativity. Copyright laws must be adhered to in all work.
Artists may only show and sell a cohesive collection of work that is directly related to what was presented for jurying.
By agreeing to participate in the Tour, you agree to be open and present for the advertised tour hours.
