Entries are now open for the 2020 Art Providence Show.

The Art Providence Show is a juried show and sale of high-caliber art, craft and design (12 categories) that was created in 2017 to replace RISD's well-loved, long-running annual holiday sale upon its cancellation. While maintaining the same location and much of the pre-existing audience, the show differs from RISD's in that it is juried and applications are open to all artists/makers/designers working in the included categories – including but not limited to RISD alumni.  The new format is receiving rave reviews and has swiftly gained a reputation for attracting some of the country’s top artists, artisans, and designers.

This year's show will take place November 13-15  at the RI Convention Center in downtown Providence and will feature 150-175 artists. Show categories include ceramics, jewelry, painting, furniture, apparel and more. Jurors for this year's show include Jean McLaughlin, former Executive Director of the Penland School of Craft; Michael Lamar, RISD Senior Critic, artist and educator; and Beth McLauglin, Chief Curator at the Fuller Craft Museum.

Interested artists are encouraged to apply on www.JuriedArtServices.com. (Link can also be found on event website, www.ArtProvidenceShow.com.) Application deadlines are March 27 (regular) and April 3 (late). Application fees are $35 (regular) and $60 (late).  E-mail artprovidenceshow@gmail.com with any questions.
