      Call for Artists: Very Very Rare Affordable Art Fair

      Emerging, established, and under-represented artists are invited to show their work at JCO'S Art Haus' upcoming art extravaganza:
      The Very Very Rare Affordable Art Fair!
      NO application fee. NO exhibitor's fee.
      We showcase previously-exhibited works by established artists and new works by emerging talent, in an unpretentious environment, for one weekend only.

      We are interested in artists working in ALL mediums, including / not limited to: works on paper, mixed media, florals, seascapes, original paintings, small sculpture, ceramics, abstracts, photography, still life, unique (!!) landscapes.... I mean, you get the idea.

      All #artists will first apply via email. Selected artists will meet with our curatorial team (Julie Coconate Jenkins // owner & Bridget McMahon // Art Haus director) at the Art Haus to share their work in person.

      A B O U T
      The Very Very Rare Affordable #ArtFair, formerly known as "Got Art? The Affordable Art Show", has been seeking the best under-represented artists and promoting affordable art since 2001. With only two (!) shows (!) per (!) year (!!), each features different emerging, established, and under-represented artists working in all sizes, mediums, and styles.
      Our mission is to create new #artcollectors by exciting them with accessible #art presented in an unpretentious environment, showcasing previously-exhibited works by established artists and new works by emerging talent.
