ArtWorks: Studio Clearance Sale
Deadline: October 1
We all have those pieces in our studio: we're tired of looking at them; they're damaged, last year's "model", or old pieces; or we just never really liked them to begin with. We don't put them out to sell, but we don't want to throw them out either. So what do we do with them?
Studio clearance is a section of your display must have art pieces available at a reduced price. A minimum of 25% discount. Up to 90% off. This show is scheduled at a time of the year that is slower for artists and we need to give shoppers a reason to come out and view our work. This is a "meat and potato" style show. Nothing fancy. Just come in and sell some art.
There is NO expectation for your booth. You can bring a table and chair, and only discounted art to sell. (Make it even easier and just rent a table and chairs from me from just $20). Or bring your entire display and have a section of art at discounted prices. Your choice.
The show's advertisement will state that ALL artists will have art on sale in their booths. Booths are limited to 100 spaces. Note booth sizes are 8ft wide x 10ft deep. You may have to adjust your set-up to accommodate this size booth. A limited number of half-booths are available at 4ft wide x 10ft deep. Also 1.5 booths spaces are available (12ft wide x 10ft deep).
Admission is $3 at the door. However, if shoppers bring 2 canned food items, they get into the show for FREE! All food items and any money collected at the front door will go to the Waukesha Food Pantry, our non-profit partner. Parking is free.
