Visual Fringe is the visual art portion of the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival that features drawing, painting, sculpture, design, jewelry making, and much more.

Like the theater portion of the festival, Visual Fringe is uncensored and unjuried 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. 

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.

Make sure to check out our gallery, art market, workshops, classes, crafts, demonstrations, selfie backdrops, and events located in the halls and in VF HQ (a wonderful, artistic place for anyone to hang out). They are for artists and art lovers alike!

Anything you see hanging on the walls or on pedestals throughout the festival grounds – be it paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics, or jewelry – is part of Visual Fringe and it is for sale! (Remember, 100% of the money made goes back to the artists.)

Since Visual Fringe is entirely unjuried and uncensored, everyone is welcome to enter their work, whether it is their first piece or their millionth piece.  Join us!

We are excited for another year of Visual Fringe and hope you will join us! This year’s show will run May 17th – 30th. This year will be bigger and better than ever as we are expanding our space and what we offer. We will have our gallery, artist market, and a venue turned into a studio!

With your submission, your art is displayed in the gallery, you will receive an artist pass, and you will be able to volunteer and bring additional pieces to sell.

The Orlando Fringe Festival offers patrons an affordable art experience. With this in mind, 85% of art sold in our gallery ranges from $20-$200.

 

Applications must be fully completed and submitted before the delivery of artwork. You may find all the instructions and requirements in the application form. Please read it in full. Applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Once we have all the art we can fit, we will take the application form down. Our last in-person gallery application was full by mid-March.
