Attention Artists, Craftspeople, Designer/Makers and Food Artisans Weekend Outdoor Exhibition Opportunities
REMINDER: Submission Deadline — March 11, 2011
Artscape is currently accepting submissions from visual artists, craftspeople, designer/makers and food artisans who wish to participate in the Distillery Art Market, taking place from April 15 to October 16, 2011. The submissions deadline is March 11, 2011. The Call for Submissions and Application Form are available at www.distilleryartmarket.ca.
The Distillery Art Market will feature exhibitors in various outdoor spaces at The Distillery Historic District over the course of the spring, summer and fall starting April 15, 2011. The Distillery Art Market is an exhibition designed to produce a creator-to-market opportunity for artists, craftspeople, designer/makers and food artisans. The markets will take place for 27 consecutive weeks until the final market weekend of October 16, 2011.
Applicants can choose to participate in one weekend or a series of weekends for the Distillery Art Market’s duration. Artists, craftspeople, designer/makers and food artisans have the opportunity to utilize provided art carts (allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis pending jury approval) or a 10’ x 10’ tent.
Participants in the Distillery Art Market will be selected by a professional jury, with consideration to diversity of medium and quality of work being sold. Jewellery artists will not be considered at this time due to the abundant representation of jewellery available at shops on-site. Food artisans will be considered provided their product is unique from the existing businesses at The Distillery Historic District. All products must be handmade in Canada by the vendor.
The Distillery Historic District has been labeled as a “must-visit” location by the New York Times, Frommer’s, Toronto Life and The Globe and Mail. The 13-acre arts and entertainment district comprises more than 40 heritage buildings and 10 streets, and is the largest collection of Victorian era industrial architecture in North America. The Distillery Historic District attracts between 2,000 – 5,000 tourists and Torontonians each weekend – providing a fantastic opportunity for creators to sell their work, expand their contact list and network with other creators in a completely unique outdoor exhibition environment.
