Fairy Art Exhibit


The Fairy Art Exhibit is one of two ways for artists to participate in the Fairy Festival. Enter a piece of artwork for possible inclusion in the curated Fairy Art Exhibit. The Exhibit will be curated, but will not be judged. 2-dimensional art mediums such as oil, watercolor and photography, as well as 3-dimensional mediums such as sculpture and mixed media will be considered.
