Juried Show Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there an application fee?
The fee ensures that we only get serious applications. The money we receive from the applications goes to improving and expanding the show.
What if I was accepted but can no longer participate in the show?
Let us know ASAP if you can no longer participate in the event so we can give your spot to a waitlisted artist. No-shows will likely result in the inability to provide a refund and may hurt your chances of being accepted into future events. However, things happen, so reach out, and we will do our best to work with you.
What happens if my application is denied?
We are working hard to accommodate more artists, but we have limited space. If denied, we invite you to reach out to us and learn how to improve your chances of acceptance the following year. Of course, You can always try again!
Why might my application get denied?
Other than the quality of work, we deny applications if you have no-showed our event in the past or if we can tell you didn’t take the time to correctly fill out the form. We expect professionalism when looking through applications, so sloppy photographs of your work or poorly filled out applications will get you denied.
What happens if I am waitlisted?
If you are waitlisted, you are not denied from participating in the show. You will still be able to sell if one of our accepted artists drop out.
Will there be special accommodations for artists who may need it?
Yes! If you are accepted into the show and need assistance, please reach out to us, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Can I apply to both the juried show and the booth event?
Yes! Please fill out the booth show application located under apply in the menu on our website.
How do I make sure I am wiring my work correctly for hanging?
Here is an article explaining how to properly wire the back of your art.
What if my artwork is not framed or on a canvas and cannot have the standard wire hanging system?
We still expect you to have some sort of wire based hanging system. We require all pieces to be mounted to a rigid surface or framed.
How can I get involved in making the show better?
We are always looking for help. If you have a skill that you think would benefit DMF or want to volunteer, don’t hesitate to email us.
