The Rotary Club of Wakefield invites artists in the Fine Arts to participate in the 32nd Annual Narragansett Art Festival to be held on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29, 2014 at Veterans' Park, adjacent to the historic Towers in Narragansett, overlooking beautiful Narragansett Bay.
This non-juried art show is limited to the Fine Arts only, including oils and acrylics, watercolors and pastels, drawing and graphics, photography, and sculpture. A limited number of spaces are available for artists working in 3-dimensional or other art media. No jewelry, pottery, clothing, furniture or crafts are accepted. Over 100 exhibitors are expected, with approximately 80% returning from previous years. The majority of artists are from the Rhode Island area, although artists from other New England states, and as far away as Florida, also regularly participate. Two food vendors have been invited to participate and no additional vendors will be permitted.
The Rotaryâ€™s Narragansett Art Festival has been located at this unique ocean side location since 1982. Although the Festival is open at no charge to the public, proceeds from artists' registration fees support the Rotary's scholarship programs and charitable activities in the communities of South Kingstown and Narragansett.
The application fee is $150 for individual artists or $80 each for a shared space by two artists. Application deadline is May 30, 2014. Complete artist details and the Festival application are available on-line at www.wakefieldrotary.com.
