UPCOMING SHOWS - please tell your artist-friends!
Submissions are open now through July 31 for our annual Regional Juried Show which opens in September. All the details and guidelines are on our website, including the jurists and judge for the Regional Show. Thanks to our member, Babs Kall, who has contacts throughout the art community in Athens, we have some fabulous artists with impressive credentials as jurists.

You can download and print the guidelines there, or drop by the center for copies.
FALL FEST/Pop-Up Shops
If you are an artist/maker in our Shop, your second opportunity of the year to have a Pop-Up Shop is coming up -- Fall Fest on October 8.
if you'd like to have a pop up shop, it will run the way we always do things - you can set up a table and/or tent outside. First come, first served - you can be in the grassy areas but don't block sidewalks. I don't assign spots. You will take care of your own customers (taking payments) and settle up with us at the end of the day for 10% with a cap of $60. If you sell over $600, you will only owe us $60 max. NO RENTAL FEE.
Please RSVP by responding to this email. If you are already in our Gift Shop, you will be approved to have a Pop Up Shop during Fall Fest. If you are a member but NOT already in the shop, your work will have to be juried into the Fest. Email photos of sample works by responding to this email.
The city will have booths for $75. If you are a member here, please support YOUR art center - it's a better deal for you!
CHRISTMAS SHOP – October 29 – December 24
Our entire gallery is transformed into a Christmas Shop - hundreds of gifts, most under $35.
Note, new this year - there will be a $30 fee per booth - this will cover both November and December.
Booths are available to members who currently have items in our shop.
As usual in the gift shop, we keep 25% of the sale.
Set up: October 23 - 28. Shop opens October 29.
