SOUTH PARIS — The 2014 Moore Park Art Show is inviting artists to apply for the 2014 event which will be held on a Sunday show format designed to target tourists on Route 26 going through South Paris. Organizers made the change after seeing more attendance and more out-of-state license plates parked in the venue a cloudy, rainy Sunday show that was due to a postponement.

“We met people from Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Maryland and beyond who stopped for a bite to eat and a stroll through the artist booths on their way home from a weekend in Maine. Add those numbers to the local community and it means better sales for artists which translates to a more successful show for the town of Paris,” said Aranka Matolcsy, art show director.

The Moore Park Art Show in South Paris is seeking exhibitors for a celebration and sale of original arts from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 27. This annual event will feature 60 artists, a full day of live entertainment and some great eats.

Over $600 in ribbons will be awarded to several artists representing painting, photography and crafts in an optional judged competition.

Artists are invited to apply who work in paintings, drawings, photography, wood, metal and glass sculpture; fine jewelry; handmade prints; fiber and textile/fiber arts and more. All art work must be the original design and creation of the exhibitor. Booths are limited. Artists also have the opportunity to submit work for awards judging.

There will be a limited number of craft booths under a tent for more traditional crafts. Applications must be received by July 1 for inclusion in the Moore Park Art Program.
