Call for Artists!


Rockport Revitalized!

As an artist and the newly minted executive to Thousand Islands Arts, I am excited to be taking the lead in the planning and organization of the Rockport Spring Art Fair this year. I am eager to continue the wonderful traditions from past years, while also bringing my own creative vision to the show for 2019.

In light of this, I am putting out a call for artists to apply to be featured in this year’s show. This is a wonderful opportunity to have your work showcased in an intimate setting in the heart of the Thousand Islands that draws art-loving patrons and artisans from all over Ontario, New York State and Quebec.

The Rockport Rec Hall will house all of the artisan booths this year with indoor and outdoor locations, creating an excellent one-stop destination for visitors and ensuring a steady flow of traffic. 

In addition, this year there will be live music and refreshments available all day with seating and marquee tents for guests to relax and take in scheduled demonstrations.

Applications for this show will be considered until May 1st, 2019.

Come and be a part of our incredible community!
