Also POP-UP SHOPS on June 19
if you're in our market and would like to have a Pop-Up Shop, please contact Barbara Barth, our (volunteer!) shop manager ASAP - you will set up a tent or table outside, bring extra inventory, and handle your own transactions. At the end of the day you settle up with us for 10% of your sales. No booth rental fee etc. Easy and fun! Barbara's email is email@example.com
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON AT MWCA?
ABOUT THE REGIONAL SHOW
The submission process is identical to last year - online through Google Forms. Below you'll find everything you need to know and the link to pay your fee. As we learned last year, the process is easier if you use a GMAIL account. You'll even find directions below for opening a gmail account if you need to.
Although the submissions open officially June 1, the link is "live" now and you can go ahead and pay your fee. I'll email the Google Form to you after you pay your fee.
NEW this year: we have our usual categories of 2D, 3D, photography and fiber. This year we've added Functional Pottery back in as a category. We have traditionally had functional pottery as a category, largely due to the influence of Bobbie Austin who lobbied many years ago that functional pottery should be a separate category from 3D. Recently, our board voted unanimously to put functional pottery back in, in part to honor Bobbie.
PLEASE SHARE this email with other artists!!
