Meet the Artist

The only requirement is that you be in attendance at least one of the days for the public to talk to you about your art. It’s also a great time to meet a lot of the guild members.

During this show, we fill the Studio up with all the participating artists art. We have plenty of room for prints, cards and other items, since we’ll use the upstairs areas too. We usually allow around 6 medium size paintings per artist, 3 if your  paintings are large. We’ll have plenty of room for smaller paintings upstairs as well. The 3-D artists can usually bring around 10 - 20  pieces or more if it’s jewelry and the same thing applies if it’s larger art, then you’d bring less. We normally try to hang a few pieces of each artist art downstairs and use the fixed tables, window ledges and rails for 3-D. The rest of the art goes upstairs to encourage people to view the art in all the rooms.

We also have our great fundraiser, which is the miniature show. We ask our artists to donate small pieces of art for the drawing. (no larger than 8x10 framed pieces and smaller items for 3-D) This is not mandatory, but it's a nice way to support the guild. In the past, we have had up to 90 miniatures. The best part of this fundraiser is that we can purchase tickets, because it’s a luck of the draw. We all get real excited if we win. Tickets sell for $5 each or 6 for $25. You choose the items you want to try to win and we do a drawing for each individual piece at 4:00 Saturday afternoon. We can start taking miniatures as soon as you bring them to the Studio. You don’t have to be a participate in the show to donate an item.
