Holiday Show Dates: December 7 & 8, 2019

Please read before filling out application: Artists have the option to apply to both the Spring Art Exposé and the Holiday Thieves' Market in one application by selecting the "both shows" option on the application. When you select this option the jury fee you send in will count toward both shows and you will not have to apply for the next show. If you do not select that option then you will have to apply to the next show and pay the jury fee again. Please let us know if you have any questions. 

No kits, molded items, commercially formed items (including commercially printed matter), antiques, or imports are allowed. Limited edition prints up to #1000 are acceptance. Items cannot include commercial designs (Precious Moments, college logos, etc.) Any artist whose work is found to be unoriginal or inconsistent with their submitted slides will be asked to leave the market.

Booth notes: Booth sizes are 10' x 8' or 8' x 10' (width x depth). Artists must make sure their set-up fits inside the measured area marked off for them. When requesting booth spaces please understand that we cannot make our booths 10 X 10. This is not possible to accommodate for a larger size in the venue space that we have for each event.  We are sorry if this is creates any inconvenience. However artists have the option to purchase a double booth or a 1 1/2 booth if they are in need of more space.
