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:

Artist Statement
An Artist Statement describing the technique, materials, and processes used in the creation of your entire body of work must be included with each Art on the Fox show entry. Your Artist Statement may be used in the promotion of the festival through public relations efforts and should be no longer than a maximum of 1000 characters (including punctuation and spacing).

No Show Policy
Artists who have not checked in and/or notified Art on the Fox or JMF Events with a message via festival phone (630.809.7901) or email (info@jmfevents.com) by 7:00 am Saturday (first day of art show) will be considered a NO SHOW and the booth space will be forfeited with no refund.
