Call for Artists: 12th Annual Holiday Art Market

The Mt. Airy Art Garage’s 12th Annual Holiday Art Market

Taking Place Over 5 Consecutive Weekends: November 20 – 21, November 27 – 28, December 4 – 5, December 11 – 12, December 18 – 19

It’s getting close to the Holiday Art Market — A Juried Holiday Display of Original Fine Art and Crafts. This is our 12th Annual Holiday Art Market, and we intend to celebrate it with fine art, handcrafts, music, food, and a wonderful time for all.

This year we’re doing something different: We’re expanding to 5 exciting weekends during the Holiday Season! Starting November 20th and running through December 19th, artists will have the chance to sell their work for as many days and weekends as they want. Artists have the choice to sell for only one weekend or during the entire event, and artists must remove their displays after Sunday.

All artists are invited to submit their work for sale at our Holiday Art Market during the weekends of November 20 – 21, November 27 – 28, December 4 – 5, December 11 – 12, and December 18 – 19. 

The event will run on Saturdays from 11 AM – 6 PM and Sundays from 11 AM – 5 PM, with setup on Fridays from 6 PM – 9 PM. All work must be your own original work. Anything you submit must reflect what has been juried (no add-ons). The cost for the weekend is $100/members and $150/non-members for two days, and all exhibitors receive a space up to 10’ x 10’. All current members will have first priority in the jurying process. All artists retain 100% of their sales when selling during the Art Market. Any non-member who participates will have a MAAG Membership included at no extra cost. NOTE: For the duration of the weekend, all artwork must remain on display and all artists must be present with their artwork.
