HOW TO APPLY

This year the Dallas Arboretum is using the ZAPP application forum for Artscape submissions, allowing artists to easy apply to the show and keep track of where their application is in the process.


Artists may apply once per category, and in no more than two. Collaborating artists may apply to participate in the show, but only joint work may be shown and sold. Both names must appear on all application materials and both artists must contribute

to the creation of the art pieces.

We're using Zapp this year because it has numerous advantage.

  • Easy communication between the artist and show producers
  • Ability to upload high-resolution images of artwork for jury review
  • Convenient access to artwork images for jury review, and online scoring
