Kingdom Art-Sci Faires
Trimaris hosts one Kingdom Arts & Sciences Faire each year. This Faire usually occurs in January, but the date is not set. Check the Kingdom Calendar for Specifics.
The Art & Sciences Faire is a traditional, academic style Faire, in which individual pieces are entered into a specific category. This is an academic and artistic faire in which the entrant competes against a set parameter of rules at their chosen level. The emphasis is on education and constructive feedback.
There are three levels of entry at each Faire: Novice, Journeyman, and Masterwork. Entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges and scored according to the criteria specified for each level of entry. Judging forms for each level are available to all entering prior to the faire and should be used to guide the development and completion of your project.
The Kingdom Art Sci Faire is also where champions are chosen for Gulf Wars Art Sci Competition. Champions may be chosen from Journeyman or Masterwork entries. For Art-Sci acclaims and awards, click here to learn more.
Regional Art-Sci Faires
Regional Art-Sci Faires are held three times a year at local Baronial or Shire events.
The regional faires follow the same basic format as the Kingdom faires, including the use of the same rubrics in the Novice, Journeyman, and Masterwork categories. This allows for more opportunities for coaching and feedback leading up to the Kingdom Faire.
The Regional Art-Sci Faires (typically held in the Autumn of the year) are intended to give access, regionally, to the populace that all might benefit and hone their work in preparation for the Kingdom Art-Sci Faire (typically in January). In the past, they have included:
- The Northern Regional Faire
Has been held by the Barony of Oldenfeld’s Yule event, usually held in December.
- The Central Regional Faire
Will be held September 18th, at Village Fair, Darkwater
- The Southern Regional Faire
Will be held at Ex Opus, Sangre Del Sol
Regional Art-Sci’s are administrated and conducted by the Group running it. It is wise not to over-saturate the event year with too many (though more than the above may be conducted should the event staff choose to do so), and typically the Kingdom at large tries to hold three. If your group is interested, co-ordinate your efforts with the KMOAS via ArtSci@trimaris.org today and lead the way!
