The 14 Artistic Categories are: 2-D and 3-D Mixed Media, Ceramics, Drawing, Fiber, Functional Art, Glass, Printmaking, Jewelry, Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Watercolor, and Woodwork.  Artists must submit original artwork for display and sale.  “We already have additional businesses and several new artists signing on for next year’s event and we are pleased to announce two newer ArtsaRound gallery spaces that opened in 2014 with new rotating artist shows” says J.P.
