The Jury Process
The Highlands Craft Show, like many established events of its kind, uses what is referred to as a “blind jury” process to select exhibitors. Each applicant submits four images: three of work and the fourth of the display booth. The jurors, a distinguished panel of local professional artists, scholars, gallery owners, and designers, view the images, assigning each artist a score from 1 to 5.
Once the viewing of images and scoring is completed, the Craft Show Committee will tally the numbers and build the lists of invites. Artists are invited according to their rating from the Jury; the only consideration given by the committee is to providing a balanced mix of media.
