Call for Artists for Fall 2011

Rosewood Art Festival Call for Entries
Trenholm Artists Guild (TAG) announces a call to artists for a one-day outdoor art festival, October 22, 2011, 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM at Rockaway’s, 2719 Rosewood Drive, Columbia. TAG is seeking artists to display their original fine art. The goal is to include various media: ceramics, glass, fiber arts, jewelry, painting, photography, sculpture, woodwork, furniture, and printmaking.

Approximately 50 spaces will be allocated at the discretion of TAG. Artists may collaborate as a team for space. The TAG Board will view applicants to select the exhibitors.
Art must be original, handcrafted work produced by the artist and may not be the result of work from commercial kits, molds, patters, or plans. The work exhibited must match the quality and style as represented by the examples submitted. Limited editions, signed and numbered on the front of each piece, must be clearly marked as a reproduction.

The Festival will also include venues for low-key performing art presentations such as music, dance, and drama.

The display areas will be approximately 10 x 12 in the parking lot adjacent to Rockaway’s at the corner of Rosewood Drive and Howard Street. Artists must provide their own racks, tables, chairs, display units, coverings, or other fixtures suitable for outdoor use. Electricity is not available.
TAG will solicit for purchase awards and sponsors and expects to award Best in Show and People’s Choice.
To enter submit by August 15, 2011:
1) 3-5 images representative of your work via e-mail to or mail CD to: Renea Eshleman, 508 Moss Creek Drive, Cayce, SC 29033. Include with your images your name and contact information.

2) Mail $10 entry fee payable to TAG. There will be no charge for the display space.
