The 2021 Woodland Art Fair is the Lexington Art League's premiere event. This year marks the 45th year the Woodland Art Fair has been held. The Woodland Art Fair has received several national, regional & local honors including being voted a Top 200 Fine Art & Design Show in the nation in 2007-2019 by Sunshine Artist Magazine, a Top 20 Event by The Southeast Tourism Society and a Top 10 Festival by The Kentucky Travel Industry Association.
In the hope of hosting a scaled-down, socially-distanced version of the Woodland Art Fair we are making tentative preparations. As August approaches, a final decision will be made that factors in the most current COVID-19 safety recommendations and protocols. In the meantime, we are planning for multiple contingencies while optimistic that the event will proceed.
We have developed a plan that honors the spirit and tradition of the Woodland Art Fair, but allows us to provide artist opportunities and community participation in a safe, COVID-19 friendly way:
· Fewer booths spread out over the same footprint
· Healthy at Work guidelines will be implemented and enforced for vendors and patrons
· Controlled access with health screenings
· Controlled attendance with registration required in advance for limited time slots
· Mask requirement
· Additional handwashing and sanitizing stations
Thus, with fewer booths there will be fewer artists accepted for the 2021 Woodland Art Fair. This is being done in order to provide more space in between the booths so that people may easily maintain social distancing practices. Also, it is possible that the 2021 Woodland Art Fair could be cancelled at any time between now and the 21st of August, 2021. If the Fair is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all booth fees paid to the Lexington Art League will be refunded to the original payment method. All applications fees are non-refundable.
The 2021 Woodland Art Fair Artist Application will open from March 10th to May 16, 2021. All details about the Fair and the application can be found at WoodlandArtFair.org
Artist Applications for the Woodland Art Fair are open call and invitational. The non-refundable application fee is $40.
