How to Exhibit

TROY ART! seeks to provide a well-balanced presentation that represents diverse styles and techniques in contemporary art.

Artists may sell the art they are exhibiting during the fair. Artists will sell their own works, not work produced by others. Artists shall give assurances that they are selling works they produced and that identify them as creators.

The prices set are the domain of the artists, but since we encourage the idea of living daily with art,  we understand that the acquiring of art is influenced by its affordability.


Artists may apply to exhibit or may have been specially invited to show.

If Applying to exhibit, artists will be vetted as a juried event before being accepted to exhibit.

There are THREE steps to the application process:

1. Artists must qualify by filling out a pre-qualification form and including a $25 non-refundable fee.

2. If vetted and considered eligible for participation,  artists will be asked to provide additional information.  The  information provided by artists at this point will be used for an online catalogue available to the public.

3.  When accepted to exhibit, artists will be asked to submit half the exhibition fee by Nov. 17. This will enable the artists to work with art fair organizers individually for final exhibition plans. The final payment of the Exhibition fee is due by November 25. 

(The total exhibition fee for artists is $480; refer to the Fees in the PARTICIPATE section of the website. There is the possibility of scholarships to help defray the cost of exhibition. Artist must make known their desire to be considered for a scholarship.)
