Welcome all to the 2017 Edom Art Festival.

I am Beth Brown, your new festival director and co-owner of Potters Brown, with my husband and festival founder Doug Brown. We have had our pottery in Edom since 1971, and this year I will be returning as chair and enlisting the help of our fellow artists in town for a group effort in producing the best show ever, and maybe the only artist produced festival in Texas. We do shows ourselves, so we are in tune to your needs and requests.

***PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ONE WEEKEND EARLIER THIS YEAR and will be from this point forward. The show will always be the second full weekend in October. We will be the weekend before the Rose Festival in Tyler, instead of conflicting with it, which will bring us better press and traffic.

As artists, we know what Zapp is like and we are trying to stay away from it, so we need your help to tell your fellow artists about our great little gem of a show here and encourage them to apply. We believe in the power of word of mouth. We look forward to a great year!

Festival Standards

The type of work acceptable and eligible is Fine Art and Fine Craft. All work exhibited must be original art produced by the artist. One of a kind, multiples, series or limited editions (which must be signed and numbered by the artist) will be considered. The artist must have conceived the design and executed the finished product. Work exhibited must be consistent with submitted images. EAF reserves the right to request removal of any items which, in its sole judgment, do not conform to show guidelines. If entire inventory does not comply, the artist will be asked to leave with no refund.<

Artist Booths

  • Size
    • Each artist will have a 10’ X 10’ space. Double booth space is 10’ x 20’. Tents, tables and chairs will be provided by the artist. This is an outdoor show on grass, and dog ties are acceptable. We do experience weather so be advised and prepared.
      No electricity will be provided to booths. EAF asks that artists use white top tents for booth display during the festival. There is room to unload and load your vehicle by your booth, but respect of others is mandatory.
  • Booth Sharing
    • If two or more artists work together in producing a single product, they must apply as a team and occupy one booth space.
  • Security
    • Overnight security will be provided on Friday and Saturday but EAF cannot assume liability for damage, loss or theft of artist’s work.
  • Sales
    • All sales will be conducted by individual artist. Artists retain all revenue from sale of their work. Artists are required to collect and pay 7.25% sales tax on all items sold. The Texas State Comptroller does check.

Application Procedure

Please submit 5 digital images of your current, original work, one showing your booth display. You will be applying on line this year for the first time. We are trying to get with the digital age! We will be accepting PayPal and checks. Checks will be sent thru the mail to the address above.

Please fill out the form with your digital images, file size under jpeg 5 MB. This complies with Zapp images. If you have trouble sending a Jpeg of this size, you may send images separately to the email address above with a disc or flash drive, but I would prefer if they could go thru the form, also call if you have any questions. If we need larger images for press we will contact you.

A jury fee of $10 is also due at this time. Payment can be made by check or Paypal/credit card. Once accepted, and booth fee is paid, you have made a commitment to exhibit in the 2017 Edom Art Festival. There will be no refunds after booth fee is paid. We will have a waiting list this year.


We are pleased to offer snacks, beverages and ice throughout the event and booth sitters will also be available. An Appreciation Dinner will be held for artists on Saturday evening, and we do appreciate you!

Looking forward to a great year!
