Art will be accepted in oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, pastel, photography, textiles, ceramics, sculpture and jewelry.
All entries must be available for sale, and Fresh will retain a 25 percent commission on sales.
Entries must be labeled, ready to hang and accompanied by the appropriate entry form and fee, and should be dropped of between noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, or between 9 and 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27.
Works will be juried on Feb. 27; those not selected for the show may be picked up between 3 and 5 p.m. that day.
