Artists Wanted for West Columbia Riverwalk

Artists Needed The City of West Columbia is seeking twenty-five local visual artists to exhibit/sell during this year's festival. We are seeking talented individuals to participate in the 3rd Annual Riverwalk Music Festival, a free concert and art show. Last year, brought together local, established musicians and gifted artists in a beautiful atmosphere. Join us this year to be part of a dynamic, cultural experience. The free concert will take place on April 18, 2009 at the West Columbia Riverwalk Amphitheater from 2-9pm and will have Rob Crosby and Lauren Lucas performing as well as others. The Artist's Courtyard will be set up in the paved parking lot area. Space is limited to twenty-five artists, so please reserve your place as slots are filling quickly. The City of West Columbia will provide a light refreshment area for the artists. Artists are encouraged to work on site. We encourage artists to sell prints, however, all artwork at the festival must be “G” rated, suitable for children to view, as this venue is open to the public. The fee for this year's event is $20 and a table will be provided though you may bring an extra one if your merchandise demands additional display area. Due to space limitation, tables must be no bigger than 6 feet long. Space is limited and payment will secure your spot. Artists who are interested in participating need to send a sample of their artwork via email or provide a website address for viewing. Some artists have needed to meet with me in person and I am happy to make arrangements if necessary. Thank you for your interest, Roxanne Mockabee Arts Coordinator Email: Phone: (803) 920-3735 Official Website:

Artists friends that did this event last year tell me they really had a lot of fun. Thanks for sending it along to us.

Yours truly
Jean Bourque
