2023 Visual Fringe Artists Application

Hello and welcome! Thank you for your interest in our festival. We cannot wait to see your art!

*ATTENTION ARTISTS!! Please complete the following application. It must be completed and paid for your space to be saved. This is an unjuried gallery so we are taking art on a first come, first served basis. When we have all the art we can fit in the gallery, we will take the application down and will not accept any more art. So apply early to reserve your spot! We are often full by mid March.


See guidelines below:

* We will not accept AI generated images or work.

8. Documentation: Artist must completely fill out application, listing artwork title, medium, size, and price.

Please print and use the identification labels that will be emailed to you. The title and price of artwork cannot be changed after gallery tags are printed. You will be told via email this date.

10. Copyright: It is the artist’s responsibility to ensure and protect the copyright of his/her/their own artwork.
11. Modifications: All modifications to this agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. This agreement constitutes the entire understanding between the parties hereto.
12. Jury: The Visual Fringe is not juried, however, due to space restrictions, there is a possibility that not all work may be accepted for display. This will be determined on a first come, first served basis. Art may be turned away if it is deemed hateful to a group of people.
13. Since artists are submitting 3 works, we guarantee that 2 pieces will be shown (either in the Shakespeare Theater or the Orlando Museum of Art), the 3rd may be reserved to fill space once other pieces are sold. All reserved artwork will be stored in a safe location. As with the main exhibit, OIFTF takes no responsibility in any way for lost, stolen or damaged artwork(s) or property.

If the weight of the artwork exceeds 10 lbs., the artist must ask the Visual Fringe Producer about an exemption and provide an appropriate display for the piece. Work that is not able to be secured to the wall/pedestal will not be displayed due to safety concerns.
15. Governing Law: The laws of the State of Florida IN WITNESS shall govern this Agreement whereof the parties hereto have signed this Agreement as of the date first set forth above.
