Setting a New Standard in Art Show Excellence

Inspiration From a Peer

Several months ago a concept floated past our awareness that was too good to not be inspired by. A really high level art show in Oregon (Art in the High Desert) made a statement that put forth their commitment to finding high quality artists and making sure shoppers who attended their event knew what they were seeing when they walked the show. To us it was like they had crystalized everything we here at Holiday Art Shows stand for in a simple statement.

Their words inspired us to write our own version and we are determined to use the following as our Creed:

Holiday Art Shows exist to bring talented, individual artists together with people who appreciate and support their creative endeavors. The person you meet in the booth is the visionary behind the work before you. When you make a purchase from one of our exhibitors you are buying the highest quality art from real working artists.

Holiday Art Shows never knowingly allows exhibitors with less than genuine work nor do we accept those buying and selling imported production or manufactured items meant to be perceived as genuine art.

Policies:

  • Jury of peers - additional queries to anyone who's regular images need closer examination (photo of the artist in his/her studio, etc)
  • On site re-jurying for quality
  • Dismissal of less than genuine exhibitors
  • Immediate closure of any booth showing manufactured or other disallowed work

An Idea Worth Spreading

Matter of fact, we'd be thrilled if our statement inspires more show creators to adopt a version of it for their own use. We will be delighted if a whole movement of such creeds and statements became typical and ultimately standardized by shows like us who do our utmost to give venue to excellent, high caliber, real art from artists outstanding in their media.

Live and Let Live

Mind you, we're not against shows that offer the work we wouldn't accept, we just don't want our artists' work to be confused with that of manufacturers and other buy-sell production lines that don't represent the original, creative thinking the artists we highlight engage in. There are shows out there who do not make such a distinction and when that happens we believe it detracts from the effort put forth by real working artists seeking to make a living by making and selling their own work.

The Good News

Nothing in the above statement is new to our work, nor the artists we select to participate in our shows! What is new is our decision to help people understand this is exactly who we are and what we stand for!
