The annual Artscape Artists’ Market will be held virtually from Friday, August 21 to Sunday, August 30, 2020. This digital opportunity will support artists, performers, makers and craftspeople across all artistic disciplines by providing a virtual platform for artist storefronts. Artists from any geographical area are encouraged to apply. Applications for the Artscape Online Artists’ Market are available here and due by Friday, July 24, 2020 at 11:59pm.
Artscape, Baltimore’s largest and most beloved annual arts festival, was originally scheduled for July 17-19, 2020. Due to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic, large events throughout Baltimore City have been cancelled this summer. While the festival’s cancellation is disappointing, it is not devastating. In addition to the Artscape Online Artists’ Market, BOPA will highlight Artscape virtually through social media with photos and trivia during the original dates of the festival (July 17-19, 2020). BOPA continues to support the creative community throughout the summer with these virtual initiatives to keep the Artscape spirit alive.
The Artscape Online Artists’ Market will feature an online directory of up to 75 artists, where they can showcase, promote and sell their artistry (featuring visual arts, performing arts, literary arts and culinary arts.) This initiative is presented as free to artists, with no application fee, no participation fee and no percentage of sales taken. The Artscape Online Artists’ Market is a juried show, and applications will be scored by a panel of professionals in the fields of craft, fine art, fashion and design.Learn More
