In honor of National Women’s History Month, Lourdes University will host the sixth annual W.A.V.E. (Women, Artists, Visionaries, Entrepreneurs) Festival, a juried exhibition and sale of fine arts and crafts.
The event will be held in the Franciscan Center on Saturday, March 23. W.A.V.E. is accepting artist submissions for the event. Deadline for submissions is Feb. 22.
Requirements: All arts/crafts displayed must be created and handmade by the exhibitor. Women entrepreneurs are welcome to present services, products or affiliations that are generated by women. To ensure the integrity of the show, kits, imports or commercial items are not to be displayed or sold. The festival committee reserves the right to disallow any exhibitor not conforming to requirements, art or craft that does not meet the selective criteria or that is considered physically hazardous or offensive.
Jurying and fee: The W.A.V.E. Committee will jury the entries and each artist will receive a notification of acceptance the week of Feb. 25. Upon acceptance, the fee of $35 per space must be submitted by March 8 at 5 p.m. to reserve your spot. There will be an additional $10 late fee for applications received after March 8. Payment is to be made by check only. Receipts of fees will be sent to your e-mail address.
Exhibit space: One 8-foot table will be provided. An additional table may be requested for a deposit of $35.
