Signs of Spring...
Mother Nature is reminding us that Spring isn't far away now. Snow is melting and I actually saw a small patch of grass today! 
Our Call for Artists is weeks away from deadline, we are rounding up festival volunteers and asking our members for donations of their gorgeous art for our Scholarship Raffle. 
WAA will be awarding the Annual Scholarship Awards on March 22nd at 3 PM - join us at the gallery.
Learn more about ways to get involved below. 

Call for Artists! 
Applications are still being accepted from fine art artists for the 53rd Anniversary of the Wickford Art Festival.  

Applications must be postmarked by April 1st for consideration. 

Download applications and the rejury list from our website, read about RI Tax Permits and other information for artists.

Festival Volunteer Meeting: 3/11/15
An event this large depends on volunteer support, from soliciting ads for the festival program, assisting artists with setup/takedown, booth sitting, donation pickups, selling apparel and so much more. 
We need your help! Our first (of many!) volunteer meetings is March 11, 2015 at 7 PM at the WAA Gallery. Sign up for committees, meet other volunteers, have some snacks - join us to learn more about how to help.
Accepting Scholarship Raffle Donations
Each year, the Scholarship Raffle of Fine Art is held during the festival and proceeds from the sales of raffle tickets help fund the Annual Scholarship Awards. Scholarships are given each year to high school seniors heading to an art college in the fall.

Artists - please consider supporting future professional artists with your tax-deductible donation of a piece of your artwork (2D or 3D welcome) to the Raffle! We will also acknowledge your donation of artwork in the festival program, on the promotional poster (if donation received in time) and in social media. 

We are accepting donations now! Early donations will be photographed and featured on the Raffle of Fine Art poster. Please drop your work off at the Gallery or contact us if you would like someone to pick it up. Thank you for helping make a difference in a young artist's life! 
Business & Individual Support Needed!
Promote your business through a sponsorship or advertisement in the Wickford Art Festival Program. Each year, volunteers distribute thousands of free full-color programs to attendees: why not use this opportunity to reach tens of thousands festival-goers, and support the arts at the same time!  Donation options are available for individuals too. Your generosity supports wide offering of WAA's art programs.

Please email the festival director at and she will provide you with more information on working together to promote your business and support the arts. Donations are tax deductible. 


Please contact me if you need more information - I'm here to help!
