2024 Artist Details

The window to enter art into the show is now closed.

ATTENTION ARTISTS ~ Read this thoroughly:

Upon entering Crystal Falls, you will be asked which division your artwork
is entered in
to (Budding, Student, Non-Professional, and/or Professional).
You will then be directed to a check-in table
for that division.
If you are entered in more than one division, you will need to check-in at more than one table.


Our members and volunteers will check-in your work, then tag, and hang/display your artwork for you.
The walls and tables, etc will all be setup by our team; you do not
need to bring tables/skirting/display walls, etc.
* If you have a 3D piece of artwork and it requires a special stand/hanging bracket/etc., you will need to provide that item.
Our team will take the utmost effort to protect and safely hang/display your artwork;
we are artists too and we know your pieces are invaluable to you!

 
If artwork is not properly labeled/framed/mounted with sturdy hangers,
we will not be able to hang/display it.
We will have a small selection of supplies for emergency situations.

There are many artists checking in hundreds of pieces of artwork, please come prepared!

Please note the further important details below regarding
labeling your artwork + drop-off + pick-up timing below.

Professional OR Non-Professional?

(THAT IS THE QUESTION!)

We get asked every year. And the definition of "professional" turns out to be quite subjective. For the purpose of this event, we are going with the definition posted at Quora Blog*:

"Professional artists create for other people,
they do it
as their job, to make money, and help their career.

 

Non-professional artists work for themselves,
creating
without orders, they work for their own happiness."

* With the added disclaimer that the Wolf River Art League reserves the right
to move art-submissions into different divisions, due to the quality of the work presented.
