A total of six awards will be given in where excellence is determined. Judging is completed Saturday morning during the early art fair hours. The award ceremony will be held Saturday afternoon prior to the closing of the fair. Awards will be based on the quality of the entire body of work displayed. Two award winning artists will have the opportunity to be showcased at a local gallery/business during the First Friday Art Walk.


There is a $50 fee per 10×10 booth space and a $10 entry fee both payable at time of submission. There is a maximum allowance of two booth spaces per artist. Entry forms will not be considered until payment is due, you will receive a confirmation email after finishing the submission process and all fee’s will be deposited upon receipt. The Aaron Douglas Art Fair does not require an artist to pay any commissions. Each artist is responsible for collecting and paying Kansas sales tax.

FINE PRINT: If you’re not accepted into the fair a booth refund of $50 will be refunded back to you by September 1st. Tax forms will be issued to each exhibitor in the on-site packet at the opening of the fair. It is the responsibility of each artist to return payment to the Kansas Tax Revenue Service.
