Exciting New LAG Artist Venue at the Old Town Marketplace on Main St.!

Beginning January 2017, the Old Town Marketplace, 332 Main St., is offering us a fantastic opportunity! On the 2nd Friday event of EACH month, our LAG artists will display and sell their work in the center of the Marketplace on display boards.  We will also be allowed to have tables for small pieces; gift shop items, during 2nd Friday. The displayed larger art would then stay there for the month, then rotate out for another group of artists. You do not need to be present for the remainder of the month.

The cost is only $10 per artist, with no commission on any sales for the month long show. For gift shop artists, 2nd Friday is the only show/sale day, and the entry fee is $5 with no commission taken. You need to provide your own tables and chairs (a couple of artists can share if you want).  

ALL artists need to be present at the the 2nd Friday event and handle their own sales (there is WiFi for credit card sales), plus each artist needs to bring a finger-food item for the event.

The marketplace is open during the hours of 10am to 8pm (Mon - Sat) and we have LAG members who will help keep an eye on our art, plus someone to take our sales, answer questions, etc.  

We are starting a list of artists now!  This is an incredible opportunity for us, and very inexpensive.  The fees may increase at a future date, so sign up now!  Space is limited!

If you are a current LAG member and are interested in being one of our artists for January, please respond to:

Jill Rumley jill.rumley@gmail.com (thank you Jill for finding this venue!) 
or

Please indicate if you want to enter large pieces ($10 entry fee for 3-4 pieces), gift shop pieces ($5 entry fee, plus your own table/chairs) or both ($15 fee). 

In case you haven't visited the marketplace recently, new vendors have moved into the building and this marketplace is turning into a great art gallery mall. They already have 6 artists in residence and are hoping to expand as space comes available.
