Affordable Arts Festival Application

Denver Art Show Applications Available Now

Sculpture Call for Entries

Summary: The Affordable Arts Festival has a unique and appealing format for art buyers since all of the art in the show is priced at $100 or less. This concept has been modeled after two very successful events that have been around for many years. The art buying excitement created by these festivals is unlike any other arts festival. The Affordable Arts Festival will be held on August 27, 2017 on the beautiful campus of the Arapahoe Community College (easy set-up and tear down). With extensive promotions and advertising, we have had larger crowds each year. The festival will host a maximum of 150 artists in 2017. For more info about how this unique event is beneficial to both the artists and the buying public please go to our website’s FAQ’s at

How to apply: Apply on Zapplication

There is a entry fee of $30. Artists may apply up to 3 applications for this show–an application is required for each unique category you wish to exhibit in.

Applicants must submit five color digital images, via the ZAPP application. Four images must show individual pieces representative of your work. The fifth image must be of the display that will be used at the show. We do not expect you to have a booth shot filled with the exact items that you will bring to this show but we would like to see how you display your work normally. The quality of your booth image is important to the overall score from the jury. Your display image should reveal no names and have no people standing in it.

Eligibility Requirements: open to all professional and emerging artists

Special Notes: The jurors will view the five images on calibrated monitors. The jurors will have access to the Artist Statements.

Affordable Arts Festival staff will visit all displays at intervals throughout the Festival to ensure that exhibitors comply with all Festival rules. (complete rules are avail at Zapplication)

All work shown must be for sale and priced at $100 or less.
