Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is seeking artists working in all media to exhibit at the 43rd annual Scottsdale Arts Festival, March 8–10, 2013. A jury of arts professionals will select the artists to participate in the Festival and will award prizes in numerous categories, including painting, sculpture, glass, ceramics, jewelry, photography, printmaking, textiles, woodworking and more. Applications must be submitted online at before Oct. 14, 2012.

Long recognized for its high-quality arts and crafts and beautiful setting, the Scottsdale Arts Festival has been named one of the country’s top 10 arts festivals by the readers of AmericanStyle Magazine and “Best Arts Festival” by Phoenix New Times. Founded in 1971, the event showcases the creativity of nearly 200 jury-selected artists from throughout North America. Works of art are available for purchase directly from the artists and through the Festival’s online art auction.
The Scottsdale Arts Festival attracts tens of thousands of Scottsdale-area residents and visitors, who also enjoy delicious local cuisine from the celebrated food trucks of the Phoenix Street Food Coalition, wine tastings, live music and entertainment from Arizona’s top bands and performers, creative activities for children and families at Imagine Nation, and much more.

The Scottsdale Arts Festival is produced by Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, a division of the nonprofit Scottsdale Cultural Council. Proceeds benefit the Center's arts and youth-education programs.
