The Strand Center for the Arts Holiday Artist Market 2014
The Strand Center for the Arts is hosting an Artist Market to coincide with the December Tree Lighting in downtown Plattsburgh, New York. This event will take place Saturday, December 6th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.
The Artist Market will take place inside the Strand Gallery at 23 Brinkerhoff Street in Plattsburgh. Tables will be set up along the walls of the Gallery inside our main building (the old federal building.) Being inside while the tree lighting is outside should not inhibit sales, as refreshments and the bathrooms are located in the building and are sure to draw people through the Artist Market.
The Artist Market will be held from 5:30 to 8:00 pm, but vendors should arrive between 4:30 & 5:00 pm to set up their tables.
Vendor Space Rentals:
Vendors will be leasing a table space inside the gallery. As this is an indoor event, vendors should have no need to set up large tents. Spaces available for the Market are 8 feet by 6 feet. If you require a larger space for your fixtures, please contact the Gallery Coordinator at email@example.com or 518-563-1604, or consider renting two spaces. Tables and chairs are not typically provided by the SCA, but can be reserved on a first come – first serve basis depending on availability. If you need a table or chairs, please make a note of it in your registration or contact the Gallery Coordinator. Vendors should also notify staff if they need electricity to ensure that they are placed next to an outlet. Vendors using electricity should plan on bringing their own extension cords, surge protectors, or other needed materials.
Space Rental Fees
SCA Members: $20.00
The SCA does not take any commission on sales. The SCA charges a flat fee for the space rental and vendors handle and account for all sales themselves. All producer-only products and mediums accepted. Vendors must abide by state and local laws when selling their goods.
Two Artists Applying: Two artists may apply together only if both applicants collectively had a hand in creating work submitted (please attach a brief explanation on the nature of the collaboration). Otherwise, artists must apply separately.
The SCA has the right to challenge a vender if thought to be deemed inappropriate for a fine-art Artist Market or for a family environment. The selling of alcohol is strictly prohibited. The SCA will not offer the sale of alcohol of any kind. The only food vendors may sell is sealed goods that are not meant to be immediately consumed such as jams, cheese, pickles, etc. Taste-testing by vendors of their products will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you are concerned if your product may not be appropriate please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
