First Thursday Fayetteville announces call to artists for June event

Organizers of the street side art walk program during First Thursday Fayetteville are seeking artists for the June 2 event.

All artists will be selected through an open application process followed by a juried review.

Interested artists should apply online by the 25th of each month, or email info@experiencefayetteville to request an application. Artists must pay a fee of $20 to reserve their space by the 25th of each month if selected.

From the release:

All genres of art will be considered with an emphasis on high quality presentations. All works must be original and completely created by the artist. Artists must be present and show their work throughout the entire event (5 p.m. to 8 p.m.). Artwork cannot include any graphic content such as nudity or violence.

The monthly event is held on the Downtown Fayetteville Square, and celebrates original works of art. The outdoor art walk has returned for its second season, and this year the event has expanded onto Mountain Street to include live music, a larger charity beer garden, and a Kids’ Zone.

The event is free and open to the public.
