Call For Art!!



 APRIL 4th - APRIL 7th

Fine Arts at


This will be our third year of the Fine Arts at the RIBA (Rhode Island Builder's Association) Home Show, and are we excited!  Did you know that last year we had over 20,000 attendees walked through the doors of the Providence Convention Center in only 4 days time! THAT'S A LOT OF EXPOSURE!!

So we invite all artists who create anything that would be considered decorative art for the home to send in your applications for our 2013 RIBA Home Show. This is a juried show as we only have 50 available booths for Fine Artists.



We offer 10x10 BOOTH SPACE to artists for a 30% commission fee to be paid to the RIBA Home Show from any sales made during the Home Show. There is a minimum payment of $125, payable upon acceptance into the show.  NOTE: The $125 is NOT in addition to 30%, it is the minimum payment for the booth. It simply means once you have sold more than $417.00 of your art at the Home Show, only then will you begin paying additional money beyond the $125.00,  which is 30% of sales to the RIBA Home Show.  There is a maximum that you will pay us along with the minimum. You won't pay us any more than $1,700, which means that you would need to sell $5,667 in order to hit that amount.


By the way, these booths sell to the other exhibitors for $1700.00..... The RIBA Home Show gives us artists an exceptional deal!

All Booths Include:

*  6 foot table

* 2 chairs

* Sales receipts provided by RIBA

* Tons of advertising, including television, radio, Newspapers...




Simple. Send us at least 6 images of your work along with the following information:

Name, Address, Phone, and Website (if applicable)

Celebrating 51 Years

2013 Wickford Art Festival

July 14th&15th

The WAA is proud to be the promoter of this great annual "Fine Art" festival.  Artists from all over New England, and further, come every year to exhibit and sell their beautiful paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, etchings, and more.  Artists and visitors both enjoy the festival, set on the streets of historic Wickford Village.  Quaint shops and beautiful homes line the streets as visitors stroll through the village seeking out great artwork to buy.

Wickford is a "walking friendly" community that makes it easy for families, elderly, handicapped persons, and dog lovers to enjoy visiting the festival.  Click on the "Photos" link to see some of the artists, visitors, volunteers, and events that happened last you.

You Won't Be Disappointed!

Please join us this year as an exhibiting artist or as a visitor. Wickford Village is located in North Kingstown, RI just over the bridge from Newport and in easy driving distance from Providence, CT and MA. Situated on Narragansett Bay, scenic Wickford is easy to reach via: major highways, bus, train, and the nearby airport.
