Media considered is limited to fine art and fine craft, which includes painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, clay/ceramics, wood, glass, metal, printmaking, mixed media, handmade paper and fiber. All works must be original in concept and design and must have been executed by the applicant--works from molds or kits, commercial or manufactured items, and buy and sell items are not permitted.
Tour exhibitors must qualify as "fine artists," meaning, "They possess the skill to expand and adapt even a high-end craft with individual vision." Artist's applications for tour entry are juried, and participants are selected for their work's technique, quality, and vision. Artists must have their studios within 40 miles of Decorah.
