I am Beth Brown, your festival director and co-owner of Potters Brown in Edom, with my husband and festival founder Doug Brown. We have had our pottery in Edom since 1971, also the beginning of the Edom Festival. This year I am returning as chair with the help of fellow artists Zeke and Marty, other artists in town and members of our community to help with this event.
As artists, we also attend shows, so we are very aware of your needs. 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, and encourage them to apply. We believe in the power of word of mouth. We look forward to a great year.
The type of work acceptable and eligible is Fine Art and Fine Craft, and we attempt to accept work in all price ranges. 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), will be considered. Work exhibited must be consistent with submitted images. EAF reserves the right to request removal of any items which, in its sole judgement, do not conform to show guidelines. If entire inventory does not comply the artist will be asked to leave with no refund.
SIZE: Each artist will have a 10X10 space, double booth is 10X20. Tents (white only please), tables and chairs and all display items provided by the artist. This is an outdoor show on grass, and dog ties are acceptable. You are responsible to secure your booth against rain and wind. NO ELECTRICITY, no exceptions, is provided at the show. There is room to unload and load your vehicle close to your booth, but be respectful of others, by unloading and moving your vehicle, packing and then bringing in your vehicle in the tight areas. We do pay attention to those who do not play well with others.
BOOTH SHARING: If two or more artists are collaborative in producing a single product, they must apply as a team and occupy one space. If two artists produce different work, each artist must apply with separate jury fees but may split the booth fee, limit to 2 artists sharing.
SECURITY: Overnight security is provided on Friday and Saturday nights, but EAF will not assume liability for damage, loss or theft of artist’s work.
SALES: All sales will be conducted by individual artists. Artists retain all revenue from sale of their work. You are required to collect and pay 7.25% sales tax on all items sold. The Texas Comptroller does check.
Please submit 4 digital images or your current, original work, and 1 image of your booth. These images must be jpeg 3-5 MB. Please mail images digitally, or send a flash drive. Booth image must be professional with no people present. We are getting a sense of your body of work, cohesiveness and professional display.
The application must be PRINTED and sent along with your check to:
Edom Art Festival

***We are not doing on-line application this year, as it caused problems for some artists. Sorry if this is an inconvenience.
A jury fee is due at this time of $15 made out to EACC (Edom Area Chamber of Commerce). Once accepted, notifications and contract emailed. These will be printed, or you can sign on line if you are able, and sent to P.O Box, along with your booth fee. Once booth fee is paid, no refunds will be made after August 1, you have made a commitment to show.
We are pleased to offer snacks and beverages, coffee and roll, throughout the weekend and booth sitters will be available. There is also an abundance of food booths at the festival.
