Call for Submissions: Barns Art Market Holiday Series, Wychwood Barns

Attention Artists and Artisans:

Call for Submissions for the 2014 Barns Art Market Holiday Series

The Wychwood Barns Community Association is currently accepting submissions from artists and artisans who wish to participate in the 2014 Holiday Barns Art Market this December at the Artscape Wychwood Barns.

For the 2014 holiday season, the WBCA will be hosting two evening markets:

Thursday, December 4, 2014, 4-10pm, and
Thursday, December 11, 2014, 4-10pm,

Along with one weekend afternoon:

Sunday, December 14, 2014, 12-6pm.

All three markets will feature holiday entertainment, a gift-wrapping station, and cash bar with holiday-themed beverages along with spaces for 28 exhibitors. Artists are encouraged to focus their wares to the holiday gift-buying crowd as we inspire people to support independent artists this holiday season.

Artists and artisans have the opportunity to utilize a 10′ x 10′ booth space for which they need to supply their own structure and/or display equipment. A professional jury will select participants for the Barns Art Market, with consideration to diversity of medium and quality of work being sold. Selected artists will then be assigned to each market based on their indicated date preferences. If there are any additional spaces available, accepted artists will be offered a second market date on a first-come, first-serve basis.
