SHOW GUIDELINES

Art in the Park has been a favorite of the public since 1973. It is our desire to maintain the high standards expected by our fans. Therefore ALL exhibitors are requested to abide by the following guidelines:

  • All work exhibited must be original work created by the displaying artist without the benefit of purchased, reusable molds, kits or commercial mass production processes.
  • The prominent display of sale signs or the use of any signage pertaining to clearance or end of show specials is prohibited.
  • Reproductions of work created by the exhibitor are allowed but are not to exceed 50% of the total exhibit for exceptions, call JoAnne Utterback 843 446 3830. Some art types are excluded from this.
  • All exhibitors must have completed the application and jurying process to the satisfaction of the jurying committee. If while at the show the judge changes his mind about the quality of the work you will not be invited back. We have limited space and we would like to see the quality of the overall show grow upwards.

  • Guild Members have an opportunity to share one of (2) two free spaces available for each Art in the Park, if there are at least three paid members sharing the space. Each member can use the benefit only twice within a year. If you have already used that benefit twice in one year, you will have to pay the full member price to be in the other shows.
  • A 6% sales tax must be collected by all exhibitors and remitted to the state of South Carolina. Sales tax licenses are the responsibility of the exhibitors.
