Published on January 10, 2019

The Sausalito Art Festival Foundation announced the opening of its artist application process for the 2019 Sausalito Art Festival, one of the most prestigious fine art festivals in the nation.

Now in its 67th year, the Festival invites artists throughout the world to apply to participate as one of 260 premier artists to be showcased at one of the top fine art festivals in the country. Artists will be selected by a rigorous jury process and exhibit a range of work including painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, glass, fiber and fashion, wood, photography, mixed media and more.

The jury process will take place March 20 and 21st, and artists will be informed of their entry status no later than April 15, 2019.

Held over Labor Day weekend on the spectacular Sausalito, California waterfront, the Sausalito Art Festival exhibits some of the finest regional, national, and international artists. The Festival is considered by artists, art collectors, and art fair fans to be a must-see event and attracts approximately 30,000 patrons over the three-day weekend.

As one of the oldest and most anticipated open-air art events in the country—the Sausalito Art Festival has set the standard for quality, variety, innovation and scope of artistry for more than 65 years. The Festival is held in Marin County, California, one of the wealthiest and most highly educated counties in the nation. Located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Festival is heavily attended by the residents of San Francisco and Silicon Valley – hotbeds of creativity and art aficionados.

Celebrated for its entertainment lineup, special exhibitions and cornucopia of food, beer and wine — the Festival transforms the charming seaside village of Sausalito into a three-day “Camelot” of art and community.
