Call for Artists - Chester Art Fair

Call for Artists


 9:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.

Summer plans for the Chester Art Fair are now in full swing.  At this time, we are inviting artists and artisans  to participate in this year’s Fair which will take place
on Saturday, August 11, from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.
at the Chester Art Centre, 60 Queen Street, Chester.

 We are using a similar Art Fair layout as last year and have limited space for tents, maximum size tent is 10’x10‘.  Tent requests will be allocated on a ‘FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE’ basis.  We also have a limited number of  sun/shade umbrellas for rent.
 Set up begins at 7:30 A.M. – tables must be ready by 9:00 A.M.  Props and display items, insurance and security are the responsibility of the participant. There are no refunds and no early departures.

“South Shore Vistas” -The South Shore Vistas Silent Auction is an opportunity for you to display an art scene of your choice which you can create on before the fair.  We would then display it on Saturday in our Activities Tent.  The Reserve Bid is set by the artist and, if successfully sold, the artist receives 60% of the price with 40% being donated to the Chester Art Centre.  A tax receipt will be provided for that amount.  The item will be returned to you at the end of the day if unsold.
Payment confirms your registration.  To reserve your space, go to to print the registration form. We would appreciate receiving the Registration Form by June 15 along with your payment.

We look forward to another successful Fair and hope you will join us.

  1. As an art student researching the work of the Impressionists, I have big help from this site called It's like a good art library, where, convenient for me, works of artists are divided into art movements in history. Some of the works I had never seen before.
    As the canvas prints are affordable, I ordered online a little size canvas print of my favorite,, by Claude Monet.
