We accept guest artists from outside of Laguna Beach when the show does not fill with our members. Pre-appoved artists are offered space immediately after our registration closes. It is vital we hear from you and get your fees/form within days of being invited or we move on to the next artist on the list. Depending on how things go you may find yourself invited from 10 days to 1 day before the show.
Please note that, at this time, we are not accepting jewelry and clothing submissions.
