Panoply Seeks Participants for Art Marketplace

The Arts Council, Inc. of Huntsville, Alabama invites fine artists
everywhere to apply to exhibit and sell their work at our popular Art
Marketplace during the Panoply Arts Festival. Types of media which
may be exhibited include: clay, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry,
mixed media, painting, photography, print making, sculpture, and
wood – or any combination of these materials.

Held the last full weekend of each April in downtown Huntsville's
Big Spring International Park, this all-embracing, outdoor, family-
friendly festival has consistently ranked among the "Top Twenty
Events" in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society and has
been listed as one of the state's Top Ten Tourism Events.
Attendance for this three-day spectacular typically exceeds 90,000
people (with record-breaking attendances in 2007-2009 averaging
120,000) who visit not only the marketplace, but also the Global
Village, the Official Alabama State Fiddling Championship, the
Homegrown Talent Contest, and the other exciting offerings.

As a result, artisans from across the United States compete for
acceptance in the Art Marketplace. This art show, juried by a panel
of distinguished professionals, features the best in painting,
pottery, jewelry, primitive arts, and more, and accepted artists have
two great opportunities: to display their one-of-a-kind artwork for
sale and to compete for top monetary awards including the "Best of
Show" (the Pat Flynn Kyser Award), the "Award of Distinction,"
and five Merit Awards!

The 29th Annual Panoply Arts Festival will be held on April 23-25,
2010. If you are interested in taking part in the festival's Art
Marketplace, visit and click on "Competition – Art
Marketplace" to download the application.
