Show Criteria

Important: All art shown with crackedpots must fit our Criteria for Recycled Art:

1. Art must be handmade by the artist, not manufactured by a subcontractor.

2. Art must be created from a minimum of 80% materials which:

  • have had a manufactured (human-made) past life
  • have been retired from that life
  • have been re-purposed to a new life
  • you have not purchased new
  • are not leftover from pieces from a new purchase


If you are accepted to the summer show, crackedpots, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, collects a $50 entry fee and a 25% commission on your total two-day sales. These funds help us continue our outreach and mission. These funds are non-refundable.


Showing with us, you gain great exposure and a two year listing in our online Artist Gallery. This will be our 16th annual show. We have a community reputation that inspires over 5000 people to show up, even on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
