2014 Call for Artists:

We invite artist of all media to join us for the 4th Annual Art in the Mill Park, 10 AM to 5 PM, Saturday, August 9th, 2014 in Paoli Wisconsin.   Paoli is located a short drive south from Madison’s Beltline Highway on the edge of Wisconsin’s drift less area.  Evolving from a small farming crossroads, Paoli has become a hub of the arts community in South Central Wisconsin. 

Music will flow from the Mill Terrace.  Our on sight food vendor’s offer a nice selection or several restaurants are within easy walking distance for takeout orders.   Again we hope to offer craft brewed beer from the Great Dane Pub courtesy of the Great Dane’s very own Brew master, Rob Lobriglio.

Art in the Mill Park is held in a ten acre private park between the shadow of the historic Paoli Mill and the babbling waters of the Sugar River.   The park provides a beautiful environment to show off the best of an artist’s wares and talents.  

Art in the Mill Park is co-sponsored by the Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin.  Several booths are reserved for artists on the Autism Spectrum to display and sell their work with as much support as they require.   We ask that each artist donate a representation of their work both as a preview for patrons of what the art fair has to offer and as a generous donation to support the work of the Autism Society.

Most booths spaces provide some Sun and some shade throughout the passing of the day.   Booth spaces are a minimum of 10’ x 10’ with front exposures and generous back space.  Our booth layout allows for many “end” booths and many allow for a little bit more room to spread out than most “on pavement” fairs while offering the same or better (weather permitting) drive on and drive up set up and take down.    Close, off property parking is provided free of charge.

Registration is online, for more information please follow the links listed below.  Booth fees are $100 Artists who are new to the show are asked to submit three images in jpg format of their work and an image of their booth set up in addition to a one time, non-refundable $15 jury fee. 

In the event we cannot accept you for Art in the Mill Park your booth fee will be refunded.   Booth fees are non-refundable after the 1st of May 2014 but may be transferable to future events.    We will accept applications until all slots for a given media are filled.  For highly competitive media we would strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible. 

Artists that are new to the world of outdoor art fairs, so new that they do not have a “booth shot” as of yet, are encouraged to apply as well.  We pride ourselves on featuring a diverse mixture of art and media while helping others.   While many of our artists use the typical white ten by ten tent we do not require it.   The art fair will be held rain or shine, so we ask that all artists plan accordingly.

Questions about the fair or difficulties with the registration system should be directed to me via the listed e-mail address.  Artists are also welcome to call during the Paoli Mill Park Gallery’s regularly scheduled business hours and we will do our best to answer your questions.   The gallery telephone is 608-554-7764 or feel free to stop by to gain a better feel for our beautiful venue.

With warmest regards
