The theme for Artfest 2019 is 'Unfettered and Alive'.
Do not feel intimidated by our 2019 theme! Connect with us to discuss it – so much can fit! Each piece submitted must include, in your description, the words ‘unfettered and alive’. For example: This piece/painting, “title”, depicts a time in my life when I felt ‘unfettered and alive’ ... OR ...when I longed to feel ‘unfettered and alive’ again after a loss associated with a death,... OR ...the release felt following the restoration of health (emotional, mental, physical...). Express the theme however you wish and will - do not feel constrained – just a reminder to use the above theme words.

The Art Show Weekend is scheduled to take place April 26 to 28 2019.
