PopUp Call, 2020

Apply now for SlowExposures’ sixth annual PopUp Tour.

You know you want to be part of this:


The 2020 SlowExposures’ PopUp Tour will consist of six shows – solo or group, staged in nontraditional venues in and around Zebulon, GA.  This year visitors will be directed to individual shows through our program.  We will have incentives to visit each PopUp Show, so your work will have a better chance of being seen by all the visitors to SlowExposures.

The PopUp Tour will be open for visitors between Friday and Sunday afternoons and will be a signature Saturday afternoon event, culminating in the PopUp Raffle at SlowExposures Saturday night dinner.  Make sure you check out the fine print below.


We are thrilled to welcome back John Bennette as our 2020 PopUp Juror!

The fine print:


PopUp shows should be set up by noon Friday, September 18 and kept open through 3:00 p.m., Sunday, September 20.  Arrangements may be made to have “sitters” man your show so that you can participate in other SlowExposures’ events.

Lighting and free-standing display accessories are up to you.

Participants will be asked to donate one matted print per artist to be part of the PopUp Raffle at the Saturday night dinner.

Juried-in participants will be encouraged to deliver a memorable visitor experience to achieve publicity and sales. We’ll provide the venues, the programs, the signage and maps, and the marketing.  You’ll be included in our invitation-only dinners on Thursday and Friday nights. And, we’ll do our best to find you a place to stay in Pike County for the weekend!

The application fee is $30 ($15 for those who applied to the main show June, 2020).

The application deadline has been extended to Sunday, July 12, 2020 at midnight.
