This page currently lists the steps needed for artists and galleries to register to participate in this year’s Tour, scheduled for November 6-8, 2020 and November 13-15, 2020. Artist and Gallery information will remain published throughout the year, highlighting purchase options and those open for year-round visits, depending on current regulations.
On September 14, 2020, this page will be updated with information available to the public on participants in this year’s Tour. Included will be artist and gallery information, online sales opportunities, types of art, onsite visit information and links to artist and gallery videos and profiles. Eligible galleries must be open on an announced basis and feature numerous artists in scheduled shows. Galleries with shows put together for this Tour ONLY will not be accepted.
Regardless of whether an artist or gallery had filled out paperwork before, the form below MUST be filled out as the official application and the reduced fee of $50 fee must be paid.
Before filling out the application, all Artists and Galleries must have filled out a profile in the ACPC Artist Directory online. You can find it here.
All Art mediums invited. Entry is open to all artists living or working in Placer County, including persons with disabilities, senior artists and emergent artists.
Participating artists will assure that all work is original, displays excellent craftsmanship and portrays the heart and spirit of the artist. All work should be well-conceived and expertly executed and show the mark of the artist’s originality. The artist must be closely and thoroughly involved with the production of each article except for works of original design that require out of studio production (for example: rubber stamps, reproduction of prints or greeting cards, or cast jewelry, all of which must be made from the artist’s original work).
All Art Galleries located within Placer County are also eligible to apply. Only work like that included in this application can be exhibited and all work exhibited must be of the same quality as that accepted. A major change of media or style will require submission of the work to be accepted. In the case where more than one medium is involved, all work must be considered at the same time. Categories that are not acceptable include commercial kits and commercially available plans.
