The festival welcomes online submissions — painting, drawing, sculpture and photography — from any artist 18 and older who maintains a residence in Maine. The fee is $15 per person for the first piece, $10 for the second and $5 for every additional one. To access an entry form and the rules, visit yarmouthartfestival.com.

Artists will be notified by Oct. 3 about works that have selected for inclusion, the same date an online preview gallery of the show will be available. The 2015 show featured 163 pieces by 88 Maine artists, selected by a panel of jurors from among nearly 350 pieces submitted. In all, 49 pieces were sold for a total of $58,900, a portion of which supports St. Bart’s outreach efforts.

Last year's jurors were artist Suzanne Harden; Anne Haas, Bowdoin College Art librarian; and Peggy Golden, owner of The Greenhut Gallery in Portland. The jurors for 2016 will be announced in September.

The festival will run Wednesday through Friday, Oct. 19 through 21, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. An artists’ reception, including music and refreshments, will be held Thursday, Oct. 20, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Admission will be free for both the festival and the reception, with donations accepted.

Entry fees and sale commissions help support St. Bart's programs, as well as local community services such as Friendship House, Yarmouth Community Food Pantry and St. Elizabeth's Essentials Pantry in Portland.
