Visual Fringe is the portion of the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival that consists of visual art. Like the theater portion of the festival, Visual Fringe is uncensored and un-juried and 100% of the money made in art sales is given back to the artists. The main focus of the Visual Fringe is to allow an outlet for artists to push beyond their usual medium, subject matter and comfort zone to bring true uniqueness to this exhibition and foster the celebration of creativity.
Our ever evolving Visual Fringe Gallery has grown due to the amazing artists who showcase their work, a dedicated Visual Fringe team, and fabulous support of the Orlando Fringe Staff. Anything you see hanging on the walls or on pedestals in the Orlando Shakespeare Theater – be it paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics or sculptures – is part of Visual Fringe.
(Remember, 100% of money made goes back to the artists.)
The silver anniversary is almost upon us and we are really gearing up for a great visual fringe year. The show will run from May 16th to May 29th and you can find the APPLICATION (submitted online) for this year’s gallery.
Like the Fringe theater component, Visual Fringe is entirely unjuried and uncensored, so everyone is welcome to enter their work. Artists receive 100% of the profits from all sales.
*NEW* This year’s Visual Fringe Market will be held daily (Monday-Sunday) on the Orlando Fringe Lawn! Spaces are extremely limited to 4 artists per day/time slot. Applications will be accepted on a first come first serve basis and will fill up very quickly due to high demand. See the vendor/artist APPLICATION for more details. Applications will be submitted digitally, but your space will not be secured unless payment is received. Once payment is confirmed, an email will be sent out that you are set for that day and time slot.
Applications are all submitted online via link above. All applications should be submitted prior to delivery of artwork on May 13th or 14th.
May is approaching quickly, so submit your application soon to reserve your space. Share this information with any artists you know who might be interested in participating, and can benefit from the exposure.
