Apply Now for our 2014 festival season!
Refer an Artist*, Get $50! The sky is the limit.
To show our thanks to those artists who refer new exhibitors to our festivals, we will begin a reward program!
Artists are invited to refer a new artist to one of our festivals. After that person exhibits with us at their first show in 2014, you get $50.
Only one artist is eligible to be the referring artist. The artist being referred MUST list you as the referring artist on their registration form after jury. Artists may refer as many new artists as they like.
The artist being referred must go through the jury process for the show(s) they want to be in, qualify for the show and actually exhibit in that show. Referred artists must be new to Amdur Productions festivals, name and media changes do not qualify them as new.
A check will be sent to you the week following their participation in their first show for $50. It is that easy. Good for 2014 shows only.
*Terms: artist(s) exhibiting as one entity and/or sharing a booth are considered one artist. Collaborating teams are also considered as one artist and therefore will be rewarded as such.

Artists who apply and pay jury fees to four or more festivals will have the 5th jury fee refunded to them at the time of jury fee payment. The fee refunded will be the lowest jury fee of the five festivals applied to. Good for 2014 shows only. Good only when jury fees are fully paid.

Thanks to All our 2013 Artists!
Here's what they have to say about this season...
"Anyway, you guys really know what you are doing - I found your staff to be gracious and friendly as well as competent, and feel I ad a good experience."
~ Photographer William Hottinger
"I wanted to thank the staff for all the hard work put into the Third Ward Art Fair. I know that the Harley Fest presented many challenges but you managed to make it work."
~ 2D Artist Peggy Ziegler
"This show was a huge success for me. In addition to several small sales, I received two over-sized commissions from buyers who just purchased a condo in Milwaukee."
~ Cat Clausen
"Hey...Thanks to all of you on the Amdur team for your professionalism, friendship, and a great 2013 summer art fair season. As always, all of you contributed to what has become one of our favorite and most reliable venues in which to market our jewelry. We will look forward hopefully to seeing and working with all of you again in the 2014 season."
~ Jewelers Harry & BJ Mackie
"Thank you guys for such an amazing experience!! Looking forward to come back next year as well!! Very impressed with the predisposition and collaboration of the entire team...and the great positive energy flowing around, at all times. :) so, Thank you ALL..! :))))))"
~ Painter Gaston Carrio
"This is the first show I have done with you and I was quite impressed. The show was extremely well organized. The load in and take out was easy, the team was friendly and the Sunday breakfast hit the spot. Of course the clean, air-conditioned port-a-pots where refreshing. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. I look forward to working with you again."
~ Photographer Michelle Herrli
"Thank you so much for a successful Port Clinton. I had a great show, and as always you provided great advertising to get the people out. I really feel comfortable working with you team year after year. It makes me feel confident knowing that everything will run smoothly. Thanks again for a wonderful season!"
~ Photographer Amanda Murphy
"We've grown a lot throughout this year, and we have all of you to thank for that. Amdur sets their expectations very high, and we have raised the bar for ourselves as well. We heard so many compliments from the seasoned show attendees, who see all of the other fine artists that exhibit at your shows. It's really a nice thing to hear! It is our sincere plan to apply for many more Amdur shows next year, and we hope you will remember us, and allow us to partake in yet another great season. Thank you to all of you for your amazing support. We've come to know many of you like family, and we will miss you over the cold winter."
~ Photographers Gail & Dale Horn
"Thank YOU Amy and Staff! As usual your show was run with fabulous organization and skill, and a great concern for all artists! Always a pleasure to participate! And on another note - I have had a blockbuster season so far, with many shows breaking records for gross sales. And Art at the Glen was NO EXCEPTION! This broke all records for my highest gross sales for an Amdur show in my 10 year history! Art at the Glen + Amdur Productions = Winning Combination!"
~ Jeweler Teresa DeVer
"No one in this Art show business does a better job, Checking on the artist, promoting the show, making a point, that each artist is just not a number, but a member of the Amdur family."
~ 3D Artists John & Jin Powell
A Message from Amy Amdur
Thank you to all the wonderful artists who were part of our 2013 season and our 30th year of producing the finest art festivals in the Midwest.
For three decades, we have had the honor of organizing many of Midwest's most prestigious and successful juried art festivals, including the nationally recognized Port Clinton Art Festival, which will celebrate its 30th season this summer. In 2012, we expanded our geographic footprint beyond the Chicagoland area by launching new festivals in New Buffalo, Michigan; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Hallandale Beach, Florida. The success of our festivals is based on the caliber of artists who exhibit and we hope you will be part of our 30th anniversary season!
