Hickory – The Hickory Downtown Development Association is seeking artists interested in participating in the Downtown Hickory Art Crawl on Thursday, September 15, 2016.   The Downtown Hickory Art Crawl is a Juried Show with artists selected by a committee.  Artists selected by the Jury will be invited with no participation fees required. There will be room for up to 30 artists.

Selected artists will be placed in a business that compliments their works or outside on Union Square. There is no charge to the artist for participation and no commissions are charged on items sold, but artists are required to pay all applicable NC taxes.  Artists will need to bring all necessary display items and chairs.  Failure to show for the event may lead to being banned from other downtown art events.

The Art Crawls are planned from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Artists selected to participate must be at their designated location by 4:30 p.m. unless other arrangements have been made with the business owner hosting them.
