MARCH CALL FOR ART will be announced.

As the Starline 4th Friday team looks forward to the day when we can gather to celebrate our 4th Friday Events together, we are continuing to offer a way to share our art. In 2021 we have a few changes. Please read the following changes to familiarize yourself with our new process.

February Winners will be announced on March 9.

 Call for Art Form

$10 Entry fee for up to 3 pieces
We are adding a minimal fee of $10 for the entry of 3 pieces. This fee will help support the awards and marketing costs.

Art Acceptance
We accept original art - in all mediums - painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, etc. – please upload images that best represent your art pieces. We will contact you if the art will not display well. Starline 4th Friday reserves the right to turn away any submissions with overtly pornographic, discriminatory, or violent messages.

Art Purchase
We encourage the purchase of artwork from the artists and will share contact information as requested. Last year a number of artists showing in the Virtual Show sold works of art. At this time the Starline does not charge any fees for a commission of art sold through the Virtual Show.

Our show themes are always optional, but many artists like to have themes as inspiration and have requested to know the themes ahead of time. The following are the optional themes for our 2021 year.

February - Inspired by Love
March - Time Passages
April - Art of the Earth
May - Slice of Life
June - City Life
July - Movement
August - Reflections
September – Textures
October – Fantasy
November – Thankfulness
December – Celebrations

We enjoy sharing your art with the world through the Virtual 4th Fridays Art Show. Please share our site with others and be sure to enter often! As with last year, we will award the following prizes:

Best of Show – receives a Medal and a $25 gift card to the Starline Stanchion Pub, and work highlighted on our website and Facebook

Peoples’ Choice – (Selected by popular vote) receives a Medal and work highlighted on our website and Facebook

Judges’ Honorable Mention (optional) – Receives their work highlighted on our website and Facebook

Starline Factory is home to “4th Fridays,” a regional art event that has become one of the most dynamic art attractions in the region. The event is grounded in the idea of joining artists, buyers, and art enthusiasts for a unique experience in an artistically crafted, historic location. Held on the fourth Friday of the month from January through September, with a year-end finale in October, the event features a juried mixed art exhibit, vendor artists, artist demonstrations, and open Starline Factory artist studios as well as a featured solo artist exhibit. Also, the event offers live music and cash bars for beer, wine, coffee, and mixed drinks on two levels. Spend your 4th Friday strolling through an art event, nibble on delicious hors d’oeuvres, and listen to live music in a venue that is truly one-of-a-kind. What could be better?
$10 at the door, children 17 and under are free.

About Us

Not Just a Venue… A Destination for Creativity With designated studio space located throughout, Starline Factory is home to more than 35 regional artists, artisans, and proprietors. History abounds around each corner with numerous, carefully preserved reminders of the building’s previous life. The large windows supply the studios with natural light and the exposed brick walls, cast iron fittings, and large timber columns provide a raw industrial backdrop from which artists can draw inspiration for their work.
