Call to Artists

Fine Arts in the Hills
Show & Sale

June 18-19, 2022
Only two spaces left, please contact via email.

The Hill City Arts Council is sponsoring the Fine Arts in the Hills Show & Sale this summer. This juried event was previously called Sculpture in the Hills, but this year we are growing the event to include flatworks along with sculptures. We will be joining with even more fine artists from around the country for a showcase of dynamic art. The event will be held on June 18-19, 2022 in downtown Hill City. We seek works that fall into categories that require highly developed techniques and skills. Examples may include, but not be limited to, two dimensional art like drawings, pastels, mixed media 2D, paintings, photography, and printmaking. Also, like before, we seek three dimensional works of clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media 3D, metal and wood. Please accept our invitation to apply to participate in the Fine Arts in the Hills Show & Sale in Hill City, SD, June 18-19, 2022. This juried event is sponsored by the Hill City Arts Council, a non-profit organization serving our community. 


Our mission is to enrich the cultural life of the area by nurturing and supporting excellence in the arts and by providing opportunities for area citizens, students and visitors to experience the arts in its myriad of forms.

New Benefits for Artists!

We listened to you!
We know how hard the past two years have been and we want to make it easier for you to be here with us celebrating art!

The Hill City Arts Council has decided not to take commission on your first $500 for a 10 x 10 space and $850 for a 10 x 20 space. Doing this will give you the peace of mind that your booth is paid for and you have a little extra money to pay for your gas and hotel.
We have also decided you can share a booth. Many of you have had issues with foundries and getting product made.

This decision will give you the opportunity to still show your work, save money and still make money. Tell a friend!
