Artists’ Circle Emerging Artist Booth Fee Scholarship Online Application
for Art at Hidden River

Sponsored by Saint Paul Public Schools Community Education and Artists’ Circle

Art at Hidden River,
First Saturday in December, 9:30-4:30

Deadline for application is July 1

Artists’ Circle, an association of fine crafts artists who live in Minnesota and western Wisconsin, has been incorporated as a Minnesota non-profit organization since 1997. This group of artists is an educational advocate for fine crafts and promotes venues for the exhibition and the sale of work by quality artists.
This scholarship covers the booth fee for Art at Ramsey for an emerging fine art or fine crafts artist and provides the opportunity for a new artist to enter the world of art fairs. Artists’ Circle will act as advisor to the scholarship winner.


Minimum age: 18; no upper age limit. Open to all artists new to selling at art fairs. Artist should not currently be enrolled in a high school, trade or training school, or undergraduate program. (The reason for this stipulation is to insure that the artist has developed his/her own style and vision and is not reflecting a particular instructor’s perspective.)
An emerging artist must not have shown at more than two fine crafts/art fairs in his/her/their career; no limit is placed on the number of gallery shows or other presentation venues of the artist’s work.
The emerging artist must have a body of work, in sufficient quantity to fill a 10’x10’ booth space at the art fair. Artist is eligible to receive this stipend only once.
Saint Paul Community Education and Artists’ Circle reserve the right not to fund this scholarship if no applications of sufficiently qualified artists are received.
One 10’x10’ booth space at ART AT HIDDEN RIVER is reserved for the Emerging Artist Scholarship Recipient. All artwork, display materials, set up and tear down, etc., are the responsibility of the emerging artist. Artists’ Circle will advise the artist with general art fair information and procedures as needed.
HOW TO APPLY: After filling out and submitting this form, apply online to Art at Hidden River. You may also be accepted as a regular participating artist in which case the booth fee would be required.
