Dear Artists,


The Historic Sanford Welcome Center is calling all artists to submit their work for our next Art Walk show on June 28th, 2013. The theme is “Art Show about Nothing Redux”

Description: abstraction abound, we don’t care what it is, as long as it isn’t SOMETHING, and is instead abstract art. We accept all forms of art, whether you are a painter or sculptor.


In order to submit your work, please fill out the application which I have attached to this email. You will need to provide us with either digital photos or hard copies of the art you would like to enter. The rules and guidelines can be found on our website at  All work must be an original; it cannot be a print, and the deadline to turn in your application is Wednesday, June 19th.


The Sanford Art Walk is a tour through the art venues of historic downtown Sanford from 6-9PM every fourth Friday of the month. In conjunction with this wonderful event, The Historic Sanford Welcome Center is proud to host Central Florida's only monthly juried art show with both a "Best in Show" award and a "People's Choice" award. The juried exhibit will hang in the Welcome Center for a month following the show, until setup for the next month's event begins. During the hanging, the artwork may be sold through the Welcome Center. A 10% commission is charged if the work is sold the evening of the event, and a 35% commission is charged for all sales after the event. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at the number below. See you in June!
