THE JURIED SHOW
A unique element of Art Fair 14C is The Juried Show, which is open to artists who live, or have a studio, in the state of New Jersey.
Juried Show artists receive lifetime attendence to Art Fair 14C for themselves and a guest, as well as exhibition and residency opportunities during the rest of the year.
Juried Show artists from 2019 and 2020 continue to be in contact with the Art Fair 14C team, and they have told us about sales, commissions, exhibitions, gallery representation and other opportunities that came from their participation in Art Fair 14C.
What’s different this year?
The Juried Show will also change with the venue – although fewer artists will be selected (estimate between 22 and 28), each artist will be able to show a minimum of three works of art. Artists may upload up to 10 works of art on the Juried application
Our strong preference is for artwork that is available for sale, but it is not a requirement for The Juried Show. Art Fair 14C takes a 30% commission on all sales from the Juried Show during the week of the fair.
There is an application fee of $25, the same as in 2020. Artists who apply and are not selected for The Juried Show will receive 2 complimentary day passes to Art Fair 14C ($40 value).
Important: if you are an individual NJ artist planning to apply for an Exhibition Booth as well as The Juried Show, you can apply for both at the same time for a single fee of $60. Just choose the combination category on the application.
FAQs for The Juried Show
Q. Is an artist selected for the Juried Show, or are specific works selected?
In the past, our judges have selected specific works of art, but in 2021, they will be selecting artists. The chosen artists will then work with the Art Fair 14C team to curate their spaces at the fair, with a guarantee of at least three works on display, and there is no restriction on dimensions.
Q. What if my work can’t be displayed on a wall?
We will be making the display spaces customizable. Aside from walls, there are steel rafters 15′ in the air that can help display art, and we will be building podiums or vitrines, or whatever is required to properly display the Juried Show art.
Q. Aside from the $25 application fee, are there any other fees or costs associated with being in the Juried Show?
We do not charge any other fees, though we do take 30% of any Juried Show sales made during the art fair. The only other costs that might be incurred are if the artwork is shipped by the artists to the fair rather than delivered directly.
There are benefits beyond the fair for our Juried Show artists – Art Fair 14C works throughout the year to help Juried artists with further exhibitions and opportunities.
