Shell Lake Art Fair – Call for Artists!

Call for Artists

Applications for the 18th Annual Shell Lake Fine Art Festival are now available.  The art festival will be held Saturday, July 4, 2020 in Memorial Park in Shell Lake WI.

At this highly anticipated annual event, patrons will find an outstanding selection of fine art and craft to browse and purchase as they walk among the artisan displays.  The picturesque setting for the Shell Lake Art Festival is in Memorial Park on the beautiful shores of Shell Lake.  There is plenty of free parking adjacent to the park

This is a juried fine art and fine craft show and applications are juried by 3 images of the artist’s current work.  The Shell Lake Art Festival has become a very successful event and we would like to encourage local and regional fine artists/craftspeople to apply.

Applications can be accessed online at or picked up at the Shell Lake City Hall or by contacting art festival director, David Haessig at

Application deadline is April 14, 2020.


Shell Lake Art Fair – 7/4/2020 – UPDATED

As we all navigate during this difficult and unknowing time, we wanted to reach out to you in regard to this year’s Shell Lake Art Festival.

At this time we have decided to delay the jury process until June 12, 2020.  By that time, we are hoping to be able to determine whether or not we will be having the Shell Lake Art Festival this year.  If the show still goes on, this will still give us time to do some advertising for the art fair.

Any checks received for the art fair will not be cashed until after the determination has been made and the show is juried.  If we need to cancel the art fair, your check will be returned to you.

Our main priority is the health, safety and well-being of one and all.  This is a difficult time, especially for artists, with so many art fairs cancelling and galleries closing. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.  Thank you for your patience.  Stay safe and be well.
