Artwalk 2023, May 13

Bowling Green Arts Council, in partnership with Downtown Bowling Green, is  proud to announce Art Walk 2023, an art show in which businesses throughout  historic downtown Bowling Green will host artists’ displays and performances. 

Eligibility and Requirements 

Anyone living within 50 miles of Bowling Green is eligible to participate. Artists may display works in any size or medium as space and amenities of the chosen venue allow. Work must be ‘family-friendly’ and
acceptable by the venue. All work must be properly presented (i.e., framed, mounted or matted, with a hanging device if needed). Please also provide a label (Name, Title, Medium, Price or NFS), and let us
know if you need an easel or a table for your artwork at the Senior Center Display.

Each artist must meet with their merchant at least one week prior to the event. Artists or their representatives are strongly encouraged to be present at the venue from 11am until 3pm to talk to visitors about their work and to conduct sales.

One work should be brought to the Wood County Senior Center between 9:15-10 am for the jury review, 140 S. Grove St, Bowling Green. Set-up at the merchant location is from 10-11 unless you have made early arrangements with your venue. All artists are invited to the After Party (at the Senior Center) from 3:30-4:30, for refreshments and awards. Brochures listing all artists/locations will be distributed throughout the area.
