[FEB. 19, 2005]  CHICAGO -- Illinois artisans are invited to submit applications for the Illinois Artisans Program. Begun in 1985, the program promotes the work of artisans living in Illinois through exhibitions and activities.

"This is a marvelous opportunity for artists to reach new clients," said Joel Brunsvold, director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. "At the same time, visitors to the galleries are invariably impressed by the quality and diversity of artwork created by Illinois artisans."

All areas of original arts and crafts are eligible, including folk, traditional, contemporary, ethnic and fine art forms.

Artists are required to submit a program application, six to 10 slides, an artist's statement and one-page resume, a self-addressed envelope with postage, and a $20 application fee. Deadline for submission is March 28.

For more information and an application, call (312) 814-1794 or send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Illinois Artisans Program, 100 W. Randolph, Suite 4-300, Chicago, IL 60601.
