FAIRFAX ART WALK 2019: SEPTEMBER 27TH 5-8:30 PM

How It Works

We are so excited by your interest in Fairfax Art Walk 2019. This is not an application process and the event is not juried. We cannot guarantee you a spot. We talk to businesses here and enlist them to join the event. Your information is shared to town merchants and businesses who are participating in the event and want to host an artist in their business. They make their own agreement with an artist. That’s where we step back in to promote you and the business for a successful event. That being said we do have guidelines:
All creators and makers: This event highlights local Fairfax artists and is also open to Ross Valley artists and West Marin artists.
Crafts: original, unique work showing quality and craftsmanship.
Visual Art: Unique original works created in any medium, including digital. If you work in traditional media and sell a reproduction of your work, please have the original work there for purchase as well.
Musicians and Performers: For any street performers we do require that you plan an acoustic performance. Some of the artists who participated last year did use very small boosters to carry the sound to those immediately around them. The city does not allow amplified music.

Group show
We want to offer this opportunity to as many artists as we can. For artists who are interested in showing but do not have a merchant, we offer a group show. Due to limited space and the number of interested artists, the group show will be juried. The selection process will be done by Anne Mannes, Maria Baird, Georgia Gibbs, Stephanie Mohan, and Susan  Pascal-Beran. Due to the nature of the event. the participants will not be announced until mid-September. Preference will be shown to artists who have not had the opportunity to participate in the past.

Please visit the artist pages from the event last year. They are the best introduction to the event and show the diversity of both our artists and the visitors we attract.
