Application deadline is March 1, 2020.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2020 Burlington Studio Tour. We are currently accepting applications for Studio Artists and Guests Artists. All applicants will be juried by an Art in Action committee. Artwork acceptable for the tour must be original handmade one-of-a-kind work that’s been made within the last 24 months. Reproductions of fine art will not be accepted unless accompanied by original work. Photographs and Digital Art must include a statement describing the process that has to be displayed with the art during the tour. You may be contacted for further information by our jurors and asked to show a sample of your work.
Cost to be an artist in the tour is $225 plus a non-refundable $25 Application Fee for first time applicants or artists that have not been in the Art in Action tour for 2 or more years. Artists can pay these fees using Interac e-transfer or by cheque. Details will be provided in an email.
For those that have to pay the Application Fee, you will receive an email with information on how to pay the $25 fee. You must pay the $25 fee before the application deadline in order for your application to be eligible.
For all artists accepted in the tour, you are required to pay the $225 fee within 10 days of acceptance. Payment details will be provided in your acceptance email. If you fail to pay the fee by the end of 10 days, your acceptance will become invalid and you will no longer be participating in the 2020 Tour.
