The annual Nescatunga Arts Festival in Alva, Oklahoma, generally held the first Saturday of June every year, may have been canceled because of COVID-19 this year, but the organization is providing artists, crafters, cake artists and shoppers a chance to get in the festival mood virtually.
The group is now accepting registration forms from individuals for an alternative “virtual show” that will be available to the public via the organization’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NescatungaArts and its website at www.nescatunga.org/virtual-show-info.
A form is available on the website to collect information about the artist. Each artist also is asked to send five to 10 digital images of their work to be used in a short video to showcase their
talents. This video will be added to the website and posted to social media up to four times between September and early December to help the artists make contact with people who were looking forward to purchasing items at the festival.
Any item that would have been accepted at a booth for the festival will be accepted for this virtual show including the following:
Book Author, Oil & Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastels, Mixed Media, Graphics/Pen & Ink/Pencil, Printmaking, Photography, Pottery, Sculpture (wood), Sculpture (metal), Sculpture (mineral), Fiber Arts (quilting, weaving, basketry), Designer Arts & Jewelry (glass, wood, mineral), Wood Toys/Furniture, etc., Ceramics/Glass, Clothing (adult & children), Soft Toys, Decorative Items, Jewelry, Craft Food, Repurposed, Home Goods/Accessories.
Those who were planning to participate in the festival’s new Sugar Show event also may send images of decorated cakes, cookies and cupcakes to showcase their talents.
Additional details may be found on the website.
