Jury and Selection Process
Each year, Art on the Fox recruits jurors based on their in-depth knowledge and experience of the arts. The show recruits new jurors each year to ensure we are using people with diversified art backgrounds and skills including artists, professors and teachers, gallery owners and museum directors.
Jurors review all submitted artwork on an anonymous basis meaning they have no access to the artist’s name, location or pricing. The artists accepted into each category are based on their total combined score of the jurors. The top scoring artists are invited to participate in the show.
The artistic work submitted by each artist is juried based on the criteria listed below: Notification & Booth Payment
Once the jury process is complete, all artists will receive an email from Art on the Fox to notify them if they have been accepted into the show. Accepted artists will also receive a website link directing them to the payment location. Payments will go through and will be processed through Stripe.
Notification of status will be sent out by January 31, 2018.  Accepted artists will be required to submit booth fee payment by the deadline date of February 28, 2018 for participation. If the booth fee is not received by the deadline date, the artist may forfeit his/her participation in the festival or a late charge will be assessed.
