Call for Artists: M&T Bank Clothesline Festival

Now, artists from across the United States are invited to apply for spaces at the M&T Bank Clothesline Festival, a juried fine art and crafts festival held on the grounds of the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY. Now in its 62nd year, this popular festival showcasing work by 375+ artists will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 8 and 9, 2018.

A downloadable application is available HERE.

The application deadline is March  31, 2018. If spaces remain after the deadline, applications will still be accepted. For more information call the Memorial Art Gallery’s events office at 585-276-8949, or email

Rochester’s largest and longest-running fine art and crafts festival continues to evolve. It’s now the place to experience all-day live entertainment, sample food from some of Rochester’s favorite vendors, enjoy free family art activities, visit the museum, and of course, browse and buy original artwork throughout the grounds.

Each year sees the addition of more festivals, but Clothesline remains a favorite with artists. Because MAG charges admission and screens the work of the exhibitors, serious shoppers are more in evidence than at other festivals. Clothesline remains popular with visitors, too. In recent years, it has earned five “Best of Rochester” awards from City Newspaper readers.
