Work that will be displayed on a wall must be ready to hang, with no wet media, no sawtooth hangers, and staple-free edges. LibertyTown will provide pedestals when needed. LibertyTown reserves the right to reject works accepted by the juror due to content, space constraints, or inability to properly install the work.

Edible Art Competition! 

As a companion to our Feast for the Eyes above, each year we like to celebrate art made out of food too. All kinds of food are eligible: sweet savory, baked, caked, or stewed. The requirements are that 99% of the art be edible ( i.e. you can use dowels or cake plates or stilts etc.) and that it be ready to be consumed….because after the judging is done…we will eat it…

Eligibility

All artists of all ages may apply to this show. Work previously exhibited in LibertyTown’s gallery is not eligible. Work must be original and must be made of all edible materials ( dowels or plates excepted).

Rules

Work accepted into the show must be 99% edible. Dowels or other structural supports will be allowed. The art may be place on trays or plates that are not edible, but those elements may not be “part of the art”. All edible art must be ready to consume, as we will be eating it after it is judged.

Fees

None! Entry to the show is FREE OF CHARGE!
