ART AT ST. KATE’S is a juried art fair produced by Artists’ Circle to celebrate local fine crafts and fine arts. Our eleventh annual art fair is located on the beautiful triangle area of the St. Paul campus of St. Catherine University at the corner of Randolph and Cleveland Avenues.

ART AT ST. KATE’S is organized and run by artists for artists. We reserve the right to determine what is art as it applies to this event and to make final judgments on all rules.

Six established Upper Midwest artists are invited to participate. All other artists are juried into the show. Artists are selected to insure a balanced show with a wide array of media. A knowledgeable panel reviews the images submitted by the juried artists. Decisions of the selection panel are final.

Criteria

Participation is open to 100 artists who produce fine craft and fine art. These include (but are not limited to) basketry, clay, digital art, drawings, fiber, glass, jewelry (gold, silver, stone, beaded), leather, metal, mixed media, paper, painting, photography, print-making, sculpture, wood, watercolor, and wearables.

All artwork will be juried on the basis of QUALITY, ORIGINALITY, CRAFTSMANSHIP, CREATIVITY, SKILLFUL USE OF MATERIALS, PRESENTATION, and SALE-ABILITY.
