How to Exhibit

How to exhibit at the Sawdust Art Festival

The Sawdust Art Festival’s summer show and Winter Fantasy are fine art and craft shows for individual artists to exhibit and sell their original, handmade fine art or craft. As a non-profit, we are dedicated to educating the public about art. Our exhibitors are expected to fulfill our mission by demonstrating their artwork and/or teaching art classes to the public. Please carefully read the following information to be considered for exhibition:

Art media accepted (but not limited to) includes: sculpture, ceramics, art glass, jewelry (no strung beads), painting/drawing, textile/fiber/clothing design, photography, woodworking, musical instruments, leather craft and metalwork. We are not a juried show, however all exhibitors must present their artwork for approval and all summer show exhibitors must reside in Laguna Beach. Thank you for your interest in the Sawdust Art Festival.
