About the jury process:

Excellence for any art show is largely determined by the quality, range and originality of the art selected. The Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center is privileged to jury art from artists in our region with a panel of appointed SVCAC panelists! This “blind” jury sees only the images that the artists submit. Each artist submits three digital images of their work and one of their booth presentation.

The jurors will meet as a group to officially score the artists’ work. Cumulative scores of each artist are tallied and those with the top scores in each of the 15 media categories are invited to the show. A wait-list of artists is also created for consideration in the event of artist cancellations.

Vendor Guidelines and criteria for selecting work:

  • All products must be handmade by the vendor

  • Demonstrated excellence in craftmanship and consistency of style and presentation

  • Booth setups must be professional and aesthetically pleasing

  • Vendors are responsible for their own booth materials, tables, chairs, etc.

The Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center believes these criteria and the thoughtful work of the jurors is what leads to a high calibur show!

Food Vendors and Nonprofits are invited to apply!

More pertinent Information: Vendors are responsible for bringing their own tables, chairs, and popups and weights (to ensure your popup stays safely on the ground during high winds). I always suggest that vendors invest in white popups because the brightness captures the eyes of passers-by and keeps everyone cool. They also look sharp & clean and nicely frames your incredible work. Electricity may be available to a few select locations and generators are not allowed (must be requested ahead of time). Demonstrations of your work is highly encouraged because it’s awesome to show people what you do and how you do it! This is a wonderful educational piece that they can’t get anywhere else.
