  • Five (5) color images of original work intended for sale
  • A non-refundable application fee, paid online
  • Artist Statement (limit your statement to 150-175 words.)

Artists are required to open their studios (a studio is any workspace which the artist is permitted to open to the public and where the artist can demonstrate their original art, working methods – living rooms, parent’s garages, etc. are permissible) all hours of both weekends. Each site should be designated by an Artstock sign and red balloons. (Additional Signs can be ordered online).

Artists should self-promote their participation in any manner as long as any mention of their studio address includes information about ArtStock Studio Tour.

Applicants will receive an email confirmation of their successful submission. If you do not receive a confirmation, please email reg@artstocktour.com. Applications do not guarantee acceptance. Artists must apply each year; acceptance in a previous year does not guarantee acceptance in future years.
