Artists are being sought for this fall’s Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show, which will be held at The Commons in Columbus, Indiana on November 16, 2013 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Because the show is held in celebration of America Recycles Day, all work exhibited is to be made, or at least in part, of scrap or repurposed materials. A few applicants who create their work from natural or sustainable materials will be accepted as well.
Those who are interested in exhibiting are to submit digital photos and an application in order to be juried. Deadline for applications is June 18, 2013, and artists will be notified of the jury results by July 2. A booth rental fee of $75 must be paid by July 16, 2013.
