Fenton ArtWalk Looking for Artists

Event will be held in conjunction with Bastille Day in Fenton on July 13.

The Fenton Downtown Development Authority is looking for artists for the 3rd annual Fenton ArtWalk, held in conjunction with The Laundry’s 2013 Bastille Day 5K Run/Walk and 15K Run, Saturday July 13.

The Fenton ArtWalk will run 11 a.m.  to 4 p.m., and will be located in Downtown Fenton, at Leroy, from Shiawassee to the Fenton Hotel.

Every kind of talented artisan is an ideal participant. Art will go through a review process to ensure fine art integrity. If artist has fine art to display and sell, they are asked to submit two to three color photos per medium (with a maximum of 3 mediums) in jpg or pdf to: Fenton@newmoonvisions.net for review.   Deadline is Friday April 5, 2013. Participation is FREE for artists.

Those who are selected will display their work inside participating downtown businesses. They will need to be set up and ready to sell by 10:45 a.m. and remain with their display or provide a representative in their place until 4:00 pm July 13.

Last year, a total of 29 locations housed participating artists, entertainment and family fun. Participating artists displayed and sold their art in a unique storefront venue. Businesses featured specials and drawings.

“Each year the event gets even better,” DDA Chairman Craig Schmidt. “Fenton ArtWalk is a great way for the community to enjoy downtown and experience the arts.”

To participate in the Fenton ArtWalk, contact Kathy Dalessandro at 248-459-1999 or Fenton@newmoonvisions.net. Sign-up forms are available for download at www.FentonBeCloser.com.
