Juried Art Show - CLOSED
September 7 & 8
Saturday 10 AM - 6 PM & Sunday 11 AM - 5 PM

The Juried Art Show is now closed for 2013. Please consider an application next year. 2014 information will be posted after the first of the year.

Direct questions to: • 888-443-8982

The Black Swamp Arts Festival strives to bring new talent to Bowling Green each year. Our goal is two-fold: to display new, exciting and quality artwork to the public and to give artists a wider following. All booths in the juried show are arranged in quads of four. Each booth is open on one corner with one side facing the main street. This arrangement allows for drive up loading and unloading adjacent to the booth as well as exposes the artwork to the main flow of participant traffic.

The Juried Arts show, along with the Wood County Invitational Art Show, runs Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Artist check-in time is 5:30 am on Saturday morning; please see application guidelines for complete check-in information. Because our festival is on State Rt 25, we can not allow artists to set up before the designated check-in time.

Only the Main Stage and the food court are open on Friday, September 6, the first day of the Festival.
