Driving America's Art Scene - Hunterdon County, NJ USA

Artist Application

Participate in The Hunterdon Art Tour (THAT)!

Saturday, May 1 & Sunday, May 2, 2021 – 11 AM to 5 PM each day


Artists must apply through the Artist Application. We are using CaFÉ™.

Registration deadline is FEBRUARY 15, 2021!

The Hunterdon Art Tour (THAT) is an annual countywide driving tour of artists’ studios. THAT cultivates awareness of and builds connections within Hunterdon County’s abundant creative and educational communities, and thereby gains recognition for the county as a vital home and destination for the arts.

In homage to the great American road trip, THAT curates a countywide studio tour along the region’s scenic by-ways, linking together a mixture of arts venues and studios as engaging day trips. Through these enriched interactions, THAT supports diverse artists of all ages working in the fine, visual, performing and literary arts.

We are pleased to announce that a modified The Hunterdon Art Tour (THAT) is on for 2021. The Application for Artists is now OPEN!

Registration for THAT artists is on CaFÉ, a portal for artists and art events. Artists can register by going HERE and following the prompts.

THAT will be held on Saturday, May 1st and Sunday, May 2nd from 11 AM to 5 PM each day. It includes an exhibition and sale at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ. The deadline for artist registration is February 15, 2021.

The application fee for an individual artist is $100. If you are a student artist, please contact us at info@thehunterdonarttour.com for a discounted rate.

Mediums accepted include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, performance, film, mixed media, textiles, ceramics, woodworking, glass and jewelry.

While THAT is excited to move ahead with plans for 2021, we are obviously doing so with an emphasis on SAFETY and FLEXIBILITY due to COVID-19.

Here is how we are thinking about a few key items:

• Individual Artist Open Studios – THAT will leave this up to each artist to coordinate as s/he sees fit and can publish contact information on your profile page. You are encouraged to utilize Eventbrite (or a similar service) to schedule and manage visitors. You also may choose to conduct virtual tours using Zoom, Facebook Live or other interactive media to do so.

• Hunterdon Art Museum (HAM) Exhibition and Sale will be the centerpiece of THAT! we are delighted to have the continued support of HAM. Individual artists will have the option of participating in this event. This singular show provides a chance to simultaneously showcase the work of THAT artists, highlight HAM as a vital asset of Hunterdon County’s cultural community, and serve as a hub for visitors to view work representative of THAT artists in one location.

• Group Venues – THAT is not able to support group venues for the 2021 event. If artists choose to participate in a group activity, THAT will promote events in public spaces that are following/enforcing social distancing, mask and capacity protocols.
Finally, please understand that ALL plans for THAT 2021 are subject to change and/or cancellation depending on whatever COVID-19 regulations are in place on the event dates of May 1-2, 2021.

If you know an artist who might want to be part of THAT 2021, please let them know about us!

We are eager to reconnect with all of you and are grateful for your support — and patience — as we embark on this process that is familiar and yet completely new. Feel free to email your comments and questions to us at info@thehunterdonarttour.com

We look forward to working together in the coming months to make THAT 2021 happen safely and successfully!

Thank you,
