FOFA 2015 Call to Artists!
Each year Art’s Alive dedicates the month of June to the Fine Arts. For almost three decades the Art’s Alive Festival of Fine Art has celebrated the visual art of Vermont residents with a Juried Exhibition hosted by Main Street Landing and is installed at the Art’s Alive Gallery in Historic Union Station at the foot of Main Street in Downtown Burlington. The Juried Exhibition is judged by two independent professionals in the field of visual arts who are not affiliated with Art’s Alive and three cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. An additional cash prize is presented to an Artist for winning the Roberto W. Fitzgerald Award. This prize is judged and awarded by the Art’s Alive Board of Directors.
