Release from Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival:

Crozet, VA -- Calling all metalworkers, wood sculptors, ceramicists, textile transformers, painting geniuses, and wizards of charcoal: Crozet Arts and Crafts Festivals are now accepting applications for our 2017 events! We are in search of exceptional artists, crafters, and artisans to join us in beautiful Crozet as we connect with over 4,500 potential customers in two delightfully festive weekend celebrations.

Held twice annually, once in May and once in October, these award-winning juried fine Art and Craft Festivals are celebrating 37 years in 2017. Besides hosting over 100 fine art and craft exhibitors, each weekend features great food, Virginia wine and draft beer, live music, children's entertainment, and more.

Crozet is a very supportive community for the Arts Festivals, which also bring in customers from nearby Charlottesville and throughout the commonwealth.

"We get a wonderful range in our attendance," says Festival Director Amanda Polson, "Serious art buyers come to add to their collections, the festivals are a wonderful weekend outing for families, and anyone who wants to have unique items in their home won't find a better place to shop!"

As well as being a venue for sales, the festivals are a fantastic advertising and promotional opportunity. "I had a wonderful show," a 2015 exhibitor shares, "and two boutiques picked up my work in Charlottesville and Annapolis after seeing my booth display."

While some exhibitors return year after year (there is at least one who has attended for all of the 36 years, and still going strong!) the festival is always ready to welcome new talent. Applications are juried by a team of arts professionals who look for original designs, expert technique, and professional presentation. Artists who want to take part must apply by January 30. All information is available online at www.crozetfestival.com in the exhibitor section.
