Artists invited to apply for ArtFest

ArtFest Fort Myers is accepting applications for its 18th annual downtown Fort Myers juried fine art festival. Up to 200 professional artists will be selected to display and sell their original works at the show set for Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 3-4.

The weekend also includes continuous entertainment; free interactive children’s art experiences; Chalk Block, a sidewalk chalk competition; and Art Under 20, the largest high school art competition in Southwest Florida.

The application deadline for artists is Sept. 12.

Exhibiting artists will be selected in October, when ArtFest Fort Myers brings together a panel of professional artists to view the submitted images and score each applying artist.

The jury panel varies each year but always represents a broad base of expertise with regard to artistic mediums.

Artists can apply at www.artfestfortmyers.com.
