Artists and Food Vendors

We are equally proud to say that nearly half of our vendors are local and more than half are returning vendors. That means that you’ll be able to catch many of your favorite artists from last year this April. It also means that there will be plenty of new artists to meet and lots of exciting new art to admire. There is bound to be something for everyone.

While many  of our vendors are local, we are delighted to welcome  vendors from seven nearby states, including New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio. Many talented Lewisburg artists will be here as well! Our Festival is juried by a panel of artists to ensure the highest quality and broadest appeal. Our jurors score each applicant anonymously based  on quality of craft, artistic merit, artistic theme, innovation, and presentation. This system keeps the Festival interesting, innovative, and fresh. A word from the wise: if you see something you love, buy it, or someone else will!

In addition to our artists, we will have over 40 food and beverage vendors. Many of them are tried and true vendors from years past, so you can be sure to find your favorite treat while you peruse the artists’ booths. The kids will love our FREE petting zoo, courtesy of our friends at Ashburn’s Animals. The day is brimming with fun for all ages, featuring balloon art by Air Weaver Balloons, hands-on activities from local nonprofits at our Interactive Arts area, and musical and dance performances at two separate venues.

Vendor applications are now closed.

Beware of scammers. Only submit application and booth fees to the Lewisburg Arts Council through our website application (if mailing payment be sure to follow the instructions on the website form). All official event communications will be through lewisburgartscouncil.com email addresses. Do not send payment to any individual claiming to be associated with the Festival.

Meet the Artist:

I am a photographer who enjoys creating images of my environment, both natural and man-made.  While I strive to have images representing many genres, most of my work is landscape and wildlife.  Traveling to a remote location allows me to capture landscapes that are both relaxing and revealing.  The same can be said for my wildlife images.  Displaying animals or insects in their natural environment enables me to show what many often do not see.  The creation of these images requires more than timing and location.  There are additional challenges that I consider for my images.

Those challenges in creating compelling images are the aspects of the light, composition, position, and an interesting subject.  By controlling these aspects early in the creation of the image, I can minimize the editing to keep my images truer to the environment in which they were created.  The combination of these aspects gives the viewer a sense of being there, among the action, from a position of observation that wouldn’t normally be experienced.

Using the aspects of light, composition, and position has given my images the ability to capture details not easily seen around fleeting moments.  Often, these are the images that make viewers question how the image was captured.  As the photographer, I take joy in knowing that the viewer would spend the time to consider how the image was created.
