2023 SPARK Fire Galleries Application

Step 1 of 2

  • Calling All Sculptors and Fabricators: Ignite your creative SPARK

    Oregon Winterfest 2023 transforms the former fire pit competition area into the SPARK Fire Gallery. While fire pits will continue to anchor the area, now known as the SPARK Fire Gallery and Stage, the focus will further expand to showcase the creative talents of the artist fabricators. Each artist accepted into SPARK will be provided ample outdoor “gallery space” to display and promote their fire pits, fire sculpture and other work. Selected, participating artists will be compensated.

    You are invited to submit images of your work for consideration of inclusion in the Oregon Winterfest 2023 SPARK FIRE GALLERY.

    After being juried into the festival, you will receive an option to reserve the larger “Controlled Burn” size, or medium “Bonfire” or smaller “Flame Thrower” spaces for your outdoor gallery featuring at least one of your firepits and other work. Depending on the size of gallery space you commit to fill, you will receive $675, $425 or $275 in support funds to help offset some of your costs creating and transporting your work for display.

    Other Perks Include:

      -Stipends for travel and lodging for out of area artists
      -Food/beverage vouchers
      -Invitation to the Friday evening VIP reception
      -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
