48th Annual Fine Arts & Crafts Showcase
Our annual Fine Arts & Crafts Showcase returns this year for the 49th season. This year, the Showcase takes place in conjunction with the Heart of Brevard’s third annual Art is in the Air Plein Air Festival and fall makers market.
The Fine and Arts and Crafts Showcase is a juried event that provides a venue for regional fine artists and craftspersons to exhibit and sell their art, in addition to the plein air and makers market participants. Part of the Arts Council’s mission is to celebrate and nurture the creative spirit of all artists, and is furthered by the combination of these three events.
The Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase is concentrated on West Main Street and features up to 42 regional artists and craftspersons who are juried into the show based on their excellent original art and craft work.

All regional fine artists and craftspersons are encouraged to apply for a space in the Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase. All applicants will go through the jurying process. Past participants are no longer exempt. We encourage you to apply early to avoid any delays.
