Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

November 10-15 Krasl
St. Joseph, Michigan
Artisan Market 2012
(formerly known as the HollyMarket)
Krasl Art Center
Hours: 10:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Presented by the Krasl Art Center
100 exhibitors
Deadline: Tuesday, September 4

This juried indoor fine art & craft fair is a unique venue with a long standing history and many dedicated and loyal customers.  Art work is displayed in the Krasl Art Center's three museums galleries.  A special team of artists transform the galleries into a beautiful and tempting artist market. 

Artists, who are accepted, may either ship or drop off their art work at the Krasl Art Center for display.  The artists are not present for the show, making the Artisan Market extremely easy to participate in; apply, ship/deliver and relax.  The Krasl Art Center takes a 30% commission on all items sold at the Artisan Market. 

To bring people to the Art Center during this event we also feature a "Soup's On" lunch each weekday offering homemade soup, bread and dessert to our shoppers for a minimal cost. 

We have made Kraslindoorssome changes for 2012 with the goal of  expanding our artist base in order to offer new and fresh art to our loyal patrons:

  • It is our experience that jewelry and fine crafts have been more successful than fine art. The best selling items tend to be in the $10.00 to $50.00 price range.  
  • We have additionally changed name of the event from HollyMarket to Artisan Market 2012 as a reflection of the breadth of art available.
  • The Artisan Market opens on the evening of Friday, November 9, 2012 with an event premiere which includes, shopping, wonderful appetizers, wine from local wineries and live music.  Party tickets are available to the public for $25.00 per person.  Artists are invited to attend at no charge as our guests of honor.

        Please apply today through our web site the application process is managed through EntryThingy.  The application fee is $6.00.  There is no booth fee.

We invite you to "like" our Krasl Art Center Facebook page.

It is open to all, Diana. In fact, you could probably ship your work, making it easy for you.

Connie, this seems like a nice opportunity. It isn't Michigan only artists is it? I looked at the app and it didn't seem like it but wonder if you happen to know for sure. Thanks!

I'll bet artists in this region could use some income in mid-November. This nice gallery setting enables you to leave your work and have the art center sell it for you. The people in St. Joe love their art center and attend this event to support the center and to find excellent handmade goods.
