Finally – A possible break from this horrendous recession that has so severely impacted our industry for several years. Maybe the fine weather we had at both shows in 2012 or maybe folks are finally loosening up their wallets a bit but: but from our exhibitor response sheets, we believe some measure of recovery has occurred.
As we all have noticed the inventory of successful quality fairs has been reduced substantially over the past four years and we are very proud to emerge as one of the long standing venues surviving the spikes & dips of our fragile economy.
In 2012, the Ulster County Fairgrounds has constructed new bathroom facilities including four private showers for exhibitors. We are most thankful to the county for their efforts and hope more artists will take advantage of the improvements on the grounds.
New for 2013 will be a flexible booth sitter program with immediate cell phone access. We will employ several competent booth sitters to implement this program.
QUAIL HOLLOW EVENTS will also implement a “hands on” tent for our valued visitors to experience several craft technologies. They will include wood turning, hand spinning & weaving, several two dimensional drawing and painting projects and other craft stations for both kids & adults.
We wish you a healthy and prosperous New Year & hope you will participate at our shows in 2013.Take care and be well,
Scott Rubinstein & Neil Rubinstein
Directors, QUAIL HOLLOW EVENTS

NOTE: We have seen countless cases of artists with competent work rejected by the jury solely because of the poor quality of their slides. If you have doubts about their quality, we encourage you to have them taken professionally.[back]
Each juror will view all slides in all media. The five slides of each applicant will be projected simultaneously on the screen. Jurors will view all slides once through without awarding any point scores. This will enable a juror to get an overall perspective as to the quality and number of applicants in each category. The slides will then be viewed a second time with each juror awarding a point score from one to five for each applicant.
An applicant's identity will not be revealed to any juror and there will be no cross discussion among selection committee members during the viewing. Slide descriptions will be read only at the request of a juror.
There is a $10.00 non-refundable jury fee for EACH New Paltz show. A check payable to QUAIL HOLLOW EVENTS must accompany the application form. Do not send any money for your booth space at this time.
