Call for Artists: Craftland
Craftland is the Scrap Exchange’s annual Holiday Artist’s Marketplace, now in its 7th year. All items for sale at Craftland are created by local artists and crafters and are made using reused, reclaimed, or re-purposed materials. This year the Craftland marketplace will be open in the Green Gallery from Friday, November 19th thru the beginning of January 2011.
Artists who wish to participate in Craftland should complete the online application, send us 3 to 5 photos of the work they wish to sell, and provide a $10 nonrefundable application fee. The application deadline is October 24, 2010. Since we may receive more applications than space will allow, we cannot accept every artist who applies. Participating artists will be selected based on how well their work fits into the scope of Craftland, and the quality and originality of their work. Complete details can be found on our Craftland page, or by visiting the Craftland events page on Facebook.
