The Mt. Airy Art Garage’s 13th Annual Holiday Art Market

Taking Place Over 2 Consecutive Weekends: December 10 – 11, December 17 – 18

It’s getting close to the Holiday Art Market – A Juried Holiday Display of Original Fine Art and Handcrafts, and we intend to celebrate with fine art, handcraft, live music, food, and a wonderful time for all. All artists are invited to submit their work for sale at our Art Market, which will run two weekends – December 10-11 and 17-18 (Saturdays noon – 6 PM and Sundays noon – 5 PM), with setup on Fridays 6 – 9 PM. Artists have the choice to sell for only one weekend or both, and artists must remove their displays after each Sunday. Submissions will be juried, and current members will have priority in the jurying process. We will notify you if your work has been accepted no later than December 2.

The fee for MAAG members is $100/per weekend; and for non-members the fee is $150/one weekend, $250/both weekends. Any non-member who participates will have a MAAG membership included at no extra cost. All artists retain 100% of their sales when selling during the Art Market. All exhibitors receive a space up to 10’ x 10’, and they must bring their own tables*, chairs*, displays, supports, etc., whatever is needed for their presentation. (*MAAG does have some tables and chairs, so inquire if you need them.) Electricity is available.

For the duration of the weekend, all artwork must remain on display and all artists must be present with their artwork. All work must be your own original work. Anything you submit must reflect what has been juried (no add-ons).
