Deep Ellum Artists' Gallery Application


Designed specifically to highlight local Deep Ellum talent in the 75226 zip code and surrounding area. Artists of all mediums are encouraged to apply, regardless of exhibition experience. We are seeking the finest art Dallas has to offer in the disciplines of painting, illustration, photography, mixed-media, and sculpture.


The 3,200 square foot weather-proofed tent  will be hung as a gallery show with gallery standards and regulations. All artwork must be original work executed by the submitting artist. Works produced commercially or from commercial kits, molds, or blanks are not eligible. Work must be wired ready to hang.


All application and participation fees have been waived for Gallery artists. Sales of artwork will be handled by the Festival and the Deep Ellum Community Association. Artists representing their own work will receive 50% of sales. 50% will be retained to offset production and management costs. Prices should be scaled to reflect this 50/50 split.


Artists are responsible for the transportation of work to and from the show. Work must remain hanging for the duration of the show.

Artisan goods and crafts are represented elsewhere in the Festival. To apply as a local, Deep Ellum Emerging Artist or Artisan Maker, click here.
