Calls for Artists. Hot Works juried art shows looking for artists to exhibit.

Hot Works: Your Art. Our Passion.

Our passion is to inspire serious art shoppers to purchase your art. We emphasize quality of work, not quantity of artists. All work is original and personally handmade by the artist present at the show. We support the unique relationship between artist and patron by not permitting food in the booth areas or music to interfere with artist sales.

Hot Works’ principal partner, Patty Narozny has 30+ years of event and media experience. Her longevity in the event industry, combined with her expertise, credibility, durability, integrity and stability makes Hot Works events profitable and gratifying.

Every effort is made to keep buy/sell out of the show. As this is an ongoing problem with our juried art shows, we encourage artists to inform us of any buy/sell/import that may end up in a Hot Works event; your name will be held in strict confidence.

Are Hot Work shows a good fit for you!

  • Art must be original and handcrafted by the artist who is present at the show.
  • Artists must be present during the entire open hours of the show and must personally staff their booth.
  • Work must match the proportions depicted in submitted images.
  • For fiber/bead artists: if the beading is sophisticated sewing and art in itself, it will be considered for acceptance into Hot Works events; otherwise Hot Works frowns against “beaders” that merely string their work, which refers to buying the beads and sewing it on a string. Hot Works will individually consider such applications, but our decision is final.
  • No sharing booths unless all artists are represented in juried images.
  • Limited electricity. Please let us know if you are bringing a generator. Artists expecting to bring generators must, in their applications, disclose equipment description and where you expect to place the generator.
  • Prints and reproductions are accepted when clearly labeled and limited to 30% or less of work displayed.
  • Photography, digital, or giclée art prints must be limited editions of 250 or less, signed and numbered, and printed on archival quality materials.
  • We define “Photography” as the art or process of producing images by the formation of an image on a light sensitive surface or by an acceptable digital printing process. If applying in the “Digital” category, digital art prints must be made from the artist’s original digital file.
  • Each artist must provide enough work to exhibit and sell during the entire time of the art show. Artists who break down or leave early before closing time on any day of the event will not be permitted to return the following day or to future Hot Works shows unless proof of an emergency is provided.
  • An artist package is mailed approximately one month prior to the show and will include 20 post cards. Please advise if a different quantity is needed; we are happy to provide you with as many postcards as you need.
  • Booth assignments are at the sole discretion of the event and are not interchangeable. Hot Works will accept and, do its best to honor, special location requests, but cannot make any guarantees. Corner spaces are available for purchase and are assigned solely on availability and discretion of the event. Booth assignments and map of event will be available on the website a minimum of one week prior to show date.
  • When setting up your tent, the entire aisle must have the front of the tents lined up, with no protruding items in the front of your tent.
  • Paintings or other art are not permitted to be displayed on the ground, unless it as shown in your booth image submitted with your application and approved by the event.
  • Artists can only hang the sign that is provided by the art show.
