Call For Entries: “The ARTNADO Village – The Best Of All Worlds” On February 11 & 12, 2017

Artistic Synergy Inc. will be offering an expanded and more robust version of ARTNADO at the Expo Center of the South Florida Fairgrounds.  “The ARTNADO Village – The Best of All Worlds” will take place on February 11 & 12, 2017.  Locally known as “season”, when 40% of the wealth of America is in residence and a large population of Canadian “snowbirds” are in their winter retreats, ARTNADO will be offering a total of $2,500.00 in prize money.  The Rickie Report shares the details about the expanded show’s different venues, including indoor and outdoor spaces.    

 

 

 

 

Artnado201756fc4e5041082

 

Artnado201756fd9833a1400

 

One of the innovative concepts of ARTNADO this year will be the “Private Gallery”, which will allow artists, who have not been able to reach out to patrons at art fairs, the opportunity to do so. (These are private sales and as such will not be eligible for the prize money). In keeping with Artistic Synergy’s philosophy of helping artists, any artist who submits work to the Private Gallery and then subsequently sells that work prior to the show (which, of course, is the goal) will be allowed to submit an alternate piece for judging without any additional entry fee.

 

Artnado2017Image00023
All applications and fees will be handled through ZAPP, a national interface between artists and promoters, which is free for artists to join. Each artist submitting an entry for the Private Gallery will also be required to email Artistic Synergy an artist statement as well as a description of each piece. This will be required, so that their Docents may represent you as best as they may. 

 

 

Additionally the ARTNADO Village will be comprised of the following:

The Venues

50,000 square feet indoors and 10,000 outdoors

The Private Gallery –

A small curated enclosed Gallery showcasing 8 to 12 works of art by artists who cannot or do not do art shows.

The Grand Salon –

The massive indoor space reserved for Fine Art.

Avenue of the Arts –

The outdoor portico leading to the concourse buildings. Ideal for large sculptures, outdoor designs, kinetic pieces and living art.

The Concourse Buildings –

This is where the journey through the diversity of American arts begins. Within these walls, completely separate from the Fine Arts building and offered for the first time, patrons may explore the intricacies of: the Human Form, the Art of the Tattoo (the most unforgiving canvas), Fantasy Art, Exotic Art, Pinups, Dark Art, and whatever else the American mind is currently creating.


In addition to the traditional 10 x10 space they offer 10×20 and a 20×20 gallery space in the Grand Salon only

– air conditioning

-24 hour security

-prior day load-in

– gated secured vender parking

– maintained indoor restrooms

– better illumination of your art (no tents or tent tops, just pro panels or, however, else you want to set up your “gallery”

-available electricity for you to illuminate your work properly

If you have any questions

Please call Jack Busa at 561-557-8741

From Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive

 



“We will list the categories that most fairs use but are not limiting the number. This process sometimes allows for very good artists to not be accepted because a category is full and other media, with possibly less interesting work, is still being promoted. Given that ARTNADO is inside and electricity is available, there is the opportunity for under showcased art in digital or kinetics to be shown. Given the genesis of the fair by artists and patrons, the key consideration will be the work and the creative process. There is a difference between artists who are creative, those who are artistic and those who are both. While we need to have and will have balance, we will also must try not to “lock out” deserving artists such as yourself”.

 

 

“We do not require white tents for a homogeneous look, after all, you are not all the same. There are not just parallel rows of artists. The show is laid out in a grid with small conclaves of artists surround by walkways. This optimizes corners and end-caps, and allows patrons to have a gestalt of your work”.

 

 

“You can no longer be just an artist, you need to be an artist/curator and entrepreneur. Your assigned space is yours to design as you want to represent you and your work. The most successful artists understand that for less than the price of a one time quarter page ad in a local newspaper they can create a 3D ad of their work. They have incorporated the tools necessary to develop a client base and future commission work. They have taken advantage of art/entrepreneurship courses and are marketing themselves. This show, unlike almost any other, created for individual artists, is designed for you to do that.”

Miniature Garden by Debbie Johnson 

 

 

 

Debbie Johnson is an illustrator, clay artist and garden enthusiast. While growing up and living in Michigan, she was an avid gardener with two and a half acres to play with. She tells us, “When we moved to our tropical paradise I discovered a new world of gardening. Most of what I knew from my Michigan gardening adventures really did not apply here, so I began learning a little bit about bonsai and miniature gardening”.

 

HAEfairycottagedebbiejohnson2

Cottage by Debbie Johnson 

“In 2015 my daughter inherited a kiln but it did not fit in her place and so it lives in my home studio. With a kiln here I wanted to play with clay and began making Fairy Garden Houses and Accessories. I love miniatures, doll house items, and fairy gardens! Fairy gardening is a great way to garden on a small scale. I try to design fairy garden accessories that are unique and beautiful. The items I make are safe for older children, so you can create a garden with them and allow their imaginations to soar”!

 

 

 

HAEcottagedebbiejohnson1

Cottage by Debbie Johnson

 

 

“Fairy gardening is not just for children! Most of my customers love gardening but can’t garden on a large scale for many reasons. Miniature and fairy gardening is satisfying and fun and I love to create items that are sturdy and lovely. They make great and one-of-a-kind gifts for gardeners!  Each piece is handcrafted from high-fire stoneware clay, then glazed with lead-free earthy colors. No two pieces are alike. They are made with love and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them”.
