Artists Invited To Participate In 35th New World Arts Festival

Posted By on March 22, 2016

Celebrating its 35th year, the New World Festival Of The Arts will be held August 17 and 18 from 10am to 5pm on the waterfront in downtown Manteo.

New World Festival Of The Arts offers 85 local and regional artists an opportunity to display and sell their creative work and compete for awards.

Artists wishing to participate can find a prospectus for the juried show online at darearts.org. The application deadline is Friday, April 1.

The free community event will feature world-class art from up and down the East Coast, including Outer Banks artists LeMair Handcrafts.

LeMair Handcrafts is the work of Lisa LeMair and Christopher Proto and includes wearable art, jewelry, accessories and stoneware pottery. In 2015, Lisa won 3-D Best In Show for her jewelry.

“As an artist who has traveled to shows from California to Connecticut, it is so refreshing to have this little gem of a show right in my backyard. The organizers are enthusiastic, helpful and dedicated to making this a good show for everyone involved. We have strong support from locals and visitors alike. And, of course, I especially appreciate the meaningful cash awards for best in show- many thanks to the sponsors who make that possible,” said Lisa LeMair.
