The Friends of Fort Worden is sponsoring its 3rd Annual Wildlife and Nature Art Expo October 5-7, 2007 in Building 204.
This year we will be highlighting the sea otter as part of an awareness of the endangered and threatened species. Artists are encouraged to display your art work that depicts sea otters. We will be promoting that as part of this yearâs overall program.
In order to participate in this annual event, we require that you have expertise and are an established painter, carver, sculptor or photographer. If you wish to participate, there is an application available on line at www.wildartexpo.org. Those who wish to participate must submit the application, $100 for the booth fee and 8-10 images either on a CD or photographs of the work that you will be displaying. Upon review and approval, those selected artists will receive a confirmation letter. Submittal of the application does not guarantee space in the exposition. Your booth fee will be returned if your work is not accepted. Applications submitted without the booth fee will not be considered. Space is limited. All applications must be received by September 15th to be considered.
Artists who are notified of acceptance must be prepared to set up artwork on Thursday, October 4th from 8am to 5pm or Friday October 5th before 3pm and take down on Monday, October 8th.
