What is the correct size for application photos?

Images submitted by artists for jury review should be selected by the artist to best represent his or her work, taking into consideration that the images are viewed on the Internet. Close-up individual product shots are preferable to booth shots. To ensure image quality for online jury review, images should be under 1 MB with a minimum resolution of 133 ppi (optimal size: 1000 x 1000 pixels or 1200 x 800 pixels saved as a maximum quality jpeg). Featured images will be seen in a square format as a thumbnail but will also appear uncropped on the individual artist page.

Do you really need to see photos of my work?

Absolutely! Your application will not be considered without three current photos of your work. This is a juried show, and your photos are what the jury looks at to make the booth award decision.

How many people come to the fair on average each year and what are the audience demographics?

ART on the GRAND attracts roughly 40,000 throughout the weekend. The audience demographics are:


65% women, 35% men

College grads, family-centric, community-minded, discerning “shop local” advocates seeking unique handmade goods, creative class, indie-tech, crafty mamas, and sling-wearing daddies with kids in tow.


I am willing to travel to be a part of a show but would like to talk to other vendors from previous shows to see if it’s worth it. How can I get in touch with them?

You can review vendors from last year’s show here. You can contact them through their websites. Sorry, but we really can’t give out lists of email addresses for privacy reasons.
