2018 Art Show

John C Fremont Days 2018 Art Exhibition

John C Fremont Days is proud to announce the inception of the first annual Art Exhibition during the 2018 festival. We welcome all area artists to submit examples of their work for consideration, but will place priority on exhibits with the following themes: settlement period, Nebraska historical, John C. Fremont, City of Fremont, or this year’s overall festival theme: In Remembrance of World War I. All mediums of art will be considered.

All submissions will be juried by the John C Fremont Days board, and the board retains the right to reject any submission for any reason.

Artists who are approved to display their works are welcome to offer those works for purchase during the event.

Artists will be required to set up and take down their own displays, and will be responsible for all necessary materials for that display, including but not limited to tables and linens.

Our Art Exhibition will be on display in a climate controlled, indoor environment at the Fremont Mall from Friday, July 13, 2018 at 3PM until Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 6PM. All displays must be ready for public viewing by 3PM on Friday, July 13, 2018.

Only 75 artists will be accepted into the 2018 Art Exhibition. Each artist will pay a reservation fee of $75.00 upon acceptance; $50 of that fee will be refunded to the artist if the artist remains at the exhibit for the full public display period: Friday, July 13th, 2018 from 3PM to 8PM, and Saturday, July 14th, 2018 from 10AM to 6PM.

New Direction: Back to the Past

The John C Fremont Days festival has always been a trip back in time – with historical reenactments and encampments, costumed actors in authentic period garb and good old fashioned parades, our big weekend in July has long been a way to reconnect with our roots as a community. In 2018, John C Fremont Park will take a step back in time return to its original purpose in the festival: historical exhibits and vintage vendors will be the focus in the park this year.
