The 6th Annual A-RTS at Rockville Town Square invites you to apply. This year we are promoting the show as the Affordable Art Festival to differentiate it from the other 2 fine art festivals in the area. Every artist will feature some work under $500. You are welcome to display and sell higher priced work but will need to have pieces that are more "affordable" as well.  Over the last 5 years our polling of the attendees clearly states that they are thrilled to be able to bring home a unique work of art and consider $500 and under affordable. We are sure that our patrons will be enthusiastic and you will have a great show. 

Our extensive marketing and PR campaigns include a multi-page glossy program which is sent direct mail to 15,000 high income single family homes, print ads in The Washington Post, The Washington Express, Bethesda Magazine, and Washingtonian to name a few.  We have contracted with a PR firm that is amazing at getting artist stories in the local papers and on television and we work extensively with the City of Rockville, VisArts and local business to promote the Festival. Our social media outreach is prolific and effective. This festival is organized and managed by the  Bethesda Row Arts Festival team. 

Deadline: January 15, 2018
