New this year! The Pittsburgh Fringe in collaboration with AIR (Artist Image Resources) opens its very first Visual Arts Fringe for the 2017 festival! For the duration of the three day festival, artists can have their work presented at the AIR studio in the Northside. If you have an entire exhibit on display in the Northside during the festival, please contact us to be included separately in our brochure.
Visual Arts Fringe, is meant for any kind of visual artist who is looking to broadcast their work in the Pittsburgh area.
Just like the performances for the Fringe, everything is unjuried, allowing any artist the ability to submit their best pieces and to show the uniqueness of their art work. We will accept work on a first come first served basis this first year. (But, please also be aware, that we are a family friendly Fringe. If artwork is PG-13 and above, it will still be accepted, but will be put in an area for mature audiences.)
Work needs to be ready for install. Artists will be asked to help install their work on March 28th or 29th (possibly a few early slots on the 30th). We will have an opening event on the 30th, and the art will be displayed over the festival weekend. After you are accepted, you will be able to electronically sign up for a specific time to install your work. Art may be picked up the first week of April. You will also be able to sign up electronically for pickup times.
Artists can submit up to three visual art pieces and will be able to keep 70% of the profits if any art is sold.
