EVENT: Art Round Tennessee's 22nd Annual ART Prowl

DATE & TIMES: Friday, November 10th, 3pm - 8pm & Saturday, November 11th, 10am - 6pm

LOCATION: Various businesses in Cookeville's Downtown & Historic WestSide


APPLICATION DEADLINE: 11:59 pm (CST) on August 13th


RESIDENCY: Exhibiting artists must reside within 150 miles of Cookeville, TN

MEMBERSHIP: Exhibiting artists must be members of Art Round Tennessee or willing to become members at the time of acceptance into ART Prowl ($25 annual fee)

EXHIBITION LOCATION: Emerging artists will exhibit in a shared space in the lobby of the Cookeville Performing Arts Center.


  • All artwork submitted in the application and exhibited at ART Prowl must be original to the artist and made by the artist's own hand - not by employees or contractors. Artists may exhibit work on commercially printed items such as stickers or shirts, as long as the designs are original to the artists. 

  • ART Prowl is a fine art and craft show. Vendors selling items such as food products, soap, candles, non-art items, and/or non-handmade items may not be accepted. If you have questions about the eligibility of your artwork, please email

  • Buy/sell vendors and goods are strictly prohibited.

  • Artists must apply as individuals, not a group, unless they collaborate on a single body of work.


  • Artists may not apply if they have participated in a previous ART Prowl.

  • Emerging artists should have little to no experience selling their artwork (less than 2 years).

  • The minimum age to exhibit as an emerging artist is fifteen years old.

  • Artists may only submit one application - either the general artist application or emerging.

  • We will only be selecting a maximum of five emerging artists this year. If your application is not accepted, we encourage you to apply again next year. Applications will be judged based on originality of work, craftsmanship, and overall quality. We tend to receive an overwhelming number of emerging artist applications; if you think your work could be strong enough for a regular booth, we strongly encourage you to apply as a non-emerging artist, as we will only be selecting five emerging artists this year.


  • Deadline to apply: 08/13/23

  • Notification acceptance: 09/03/23

  • Deadline to submit artist agreement, booth fee, & membership fee: 09/10/23
