Littleton Art Show in Littleton, NH

Juried Art Show Application

Join us for the 55th Annual Littleton Art Show as we welcome back the prestigious juried event that has a rich history of being a cornerstone of the New England art scene. This juried show has historically attracted accomplished artists from across the region, offering them a vibrant platform to display their talents and connect with the community. Please be advised that this application is for juried artists only. If you wish to be part of the general arts field at this event, please visit the General Art Show Application page.

WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR

Event organizers are offering two clusters in downtown Littleton – premium spots for juried fine art and another cluster for crafts, homemade items, and food vendors. The juried art field is reserved for select artists only, while the general arts field is for anyone wishing to participate in the annual Littleton Art Show. General participants will not be considered for event awards but will reap the benefits of heavy foot traffic during peak foliage season.

Secure your spot and showcase your talent at our annual event.
