Set Up and Display


The Beauty of Blackness Fine Art Show does not provide booth displays, or other equipment, so artists must provide their own Pro Panel display as well as lights, electricity will be provided. Pro Panels will be the only display walls excepted. If you have questions, please email

(This is only If the show moves to a physical indoor show with artist presenting in the space)


Unlike other shows, a space can be requested but there is never any guarantee. Please make sure that you understand this before applying. The Art Show Committee looks at several factors such as: visual impact, flow of foot traffic, and “shaking up” the look of each new show aesthetically. Again, show staff seeks a clean, uncluttered, gallery-type look in art displays. Show staff determines placement of artists based on display photos/drawings.
