By Staff | May 31, 2013

“mailto:Artomatic@Jefferson”>Artomatic@Jefferson, the independently organized and licensed Artomatic event set for Jefferson County, in October 2013 at the “Rock & Tile” building, 154 Wolfcraft Way, Charles Town, will open visual artist registration on June 1. Registration is online only at our website, artomaticjefferson.com/ and will continue until July or until all spaces are filled.

There are also 140 one-hour slots for performing artists during the month-long event. Performing artists who want to participate should contact Ginny Fite, Artomatic@Jefferson director, by email at info@artomaticjefferson.com.

Phil and Becky McDonald have generously donated their building for Artomatic@Jefferson to showcase original art exhibits and events in visual arts, performing arts, literary arts, music, dance, and film. The month-long feast of artistic endeavor is free and open to the public.

The Artomatic@Jefferson event is completely open-entry; there are no juries or curators. Exhibit space is open to all artists at least 18 years old who exhibit original work, pay the registration fee, attend orientation, abide by the rules and contribute 15 hours as a volunteer during the course of the event. Artomatic@Jefferson is managed and staffed by volunteers.

Artist exhibit spaces are selected on a first registered, first selected basis. All registration is completed online. Artists are responsible for setting up and managing their own exhibit areas and managing their own sales. Artists pay no commission fees to AHA or Artomatic@Jefferson on sales of their work. Please read the artist guidelines, rules, and intellectual property policy before registering.

Artomatic@Jefferson partners include AHA!, Phil and Becky McDonald, Eden Design, the Jefferson County Development Authority, the Chamber of Commerce, the Jefferson County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Craftworks, the Washington Street Artists’ Cooperative and the Contemporary American Theater Festival at Shepherd University.

Produced by Jefferson County artists and the Arts & Humanities Alliance (AHA) of Jefferson County, Artomatic@Jefferson is a destination art event that creates community, builds audience and expands economic development by transforming available space into a playground for artistic expression.
