2024 SPARK Fire Galleries Application

Step 1 of 2

  • Calling All Sculptors and Fabricators: Ignite your creative SPARK

    Bend WinterFest 2024 returns to its former location in the Old Mill District! Each artist accepted into the SPARK fire Gallery will be provided ample outdoor "gallery space" to display their creative talents and promote their fire pits, fire sculpture and other metal work. Selected artists will be provided $350 in appreciation of the work it takes to transport and install. You are invited to submit images of your work for consideration of inclusion in the Bend WinterFest 2024 SPARK FIRE GALLERY. After being juried into the festival, the area you need for your exhibit will be reserved for you on Shevlin-Hixon Drive in the Old Mill District.

    Our goal is to bring you the highest visibility possible. We will provide a QR code for display near your entry. This QR code will connect directly with your website. Make use of this link by providing information about your business, yourself, your submitted piece and price to purchase. We will also have a separate page on our website dedicated to you and your work. This website profile will also link directly to your site so attendees can get more information about your work.

    Other Perks Include:

      -Stipends for travel and lodging for out of area artists
      -Food/beverage vouchers
      -No commissions will be taken for your sales made during the festival
      -Wood and propane supplied and tended
      -Access to artist hospitality area during event hours
