Oxford Creates Art Expo” – 2020

Deadline for submission: September 1, 2020

To qualify:

  1. All artists must be a member of Oxford Creative Connections
  2. All work must be created by the artist. (You may not display or sell work that you have not created).
  3. Artists must be present at their booth or have a representative there during show hours.

Jury Selection Process:

If the number of applications exceeds the number of booth spaces, the show will be juried. Selections will be based solely on digital images submitted. The juror’s decision is final. We will strive to have a diverse show featuring many different art forms in order to make the show interesting to the public. This, along with quality of work, will be the mandate of the jurors.

Booth size:

Booths may be shared by two or more people i.e. guilds may apply or two or more artists. Booth sizes will be ten feet wide and six feet deep and will cost $95.00.  All artists will be responsible for their own display system. i.e. racking, easels, tables, etc. There are a limited number of free tables available so please specify if you need one on the application form attached. They will be given out on a first to apply basis.

For those artists who prefer a table top display i.e. pottery, you will be given a large round table. Prices – same as above.

**Please note that your display area will not be larger than the specified size. Please plan your display prior to arriving at the show in order to ensure that you will fit into a 10 x 6 booth. You may wish to have a booklet on your table showing all available work and then place your extra work under your table or in your vehicle.


The Hall will be locked when OCCI staff is not present.
