The Hunterdon Art Tour (THAT) is an annual self-guided tour of Hunterdon County, NJ artists’ studios. It includes an artist-supported exhibition, sale and Tour opening at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton on Friday, May 4th from 7 PM to 9 PM. The Tour of artists’ studios will be on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th from 10 AM to 6 PM. The deadline for entry into the Tour is March 15, 2018. The Tour fee for an individual artist is $125; for a Destination is $250. If you enter as an individual artist, your studio will be shown on both virtual and physical maps designed specifically to facilitate the Tour to visitors, you will have your own artist’s page on THAT’s website www.thehunterdonarttour.com, and you have the option of putting a piece in the Hunterdon Art Museum weekend exhibition and sale.

As an alternative, artists may choose to enter the Tour as a Destination. This is a more economical way to participate in the Tour since multiple artists can share the cost of one location.

… If THREE or more artists will be showing AT ONE LOCATION
… AND each of them pay the $125 fee to have an individual artist page on our website
… THEN we will identify your participation as both ARTIST and DESTINATION on both printed and virtual maps.

Categories: Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Performance, Film, Video, Ceramics, Glass, Jewelry, Textiles, Other

Destinations will be shown on both virtual and physical maps and will have a page on THAT’s website. If you are participating in the Tour with other artists at a Destination, and you want the benefits of an Individual Artist, you must enter as an Individual Artist.

LINK to APPLICATION

    1. 1. Artists must apply through the Artist Application. We are using Entry Thingy

    1. 5. The submission deadline for application has been extended to March 15th, 2018. The Tour fee is $125.00 for an individual artist page and $250.00 for a Destination. Fee is due at the time of Application. (in certain circumstances, a studio visit may be a consideration of acceptance into the tour.)
    1. 6. Artists can submit one piece of artwork to the show show and sale at THAT’s opening event to be held on Friday evening, May 4th at the Hunterdon Art Museum. HAM is most generously NOT taking and commission for any work sold. If sold, 50% of the price of the work is for the artist, 25% will be given to HAM as a donation, and 25% will be donated back to THAT to help fund the 2019 tour.  Unsold works will be returned to the artist.
    1. 7. Artists living or working in Hunterdon County are preferred, including guest artists with a specific connection to Hunterdon County who has already (or will share) a Hunterdon based venue. Guest artists living outside Hunterdon County may enter through a friend’s studio or other suitable venue. Guest artists must apply separately from their “host” studio artist.
    1. 8. Artists who don’t have an accessible Hunterdon-based studio may partner with Hunterdon businesses, galleries, restaurants or other venues to exhibit their work.
    1. 9. Artists are encouraged to support THAT in promoting and informing the public regarding accessibility to your studio.
    1. 10. Proof of current Homeowner’s insurance, or Certificate of Liability Insurance and signed Indemnity Agreement

    1. 12. Artists must be present with their work during tour hours.
    1. 13. Artists are encouraged to have work for sale, although selling is NOT required.
    1. THAT is mindful of the exaggerated influence that the “art world” exerts on shaping what art is regarded as “good” or worthy of attention. There is art that expresses exciting, original ideas right here in our backyard. THAT aims to give these artists greater access to a public eager to explore studios far from venues traditionally intended for art investors.
