Calls for Artisans


Sponsored by the Holiday House Tour and the Delaware Art Museum Council

Please join us on Friday, December 12, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. AND Saturday, December 13, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Fusco Hall and East Court, the main lobbies the Delaware Art Museum, to sell your art, jewelry, books, or other creative handmades. Twenty spaces will be available on the perimeter of these light-filled open spaces for jury-selected artisans. You will be in the center of the action where people come into the Museum, linger to listen to excellent, live, holiday music, and to shop! A cash bar will also be available on Friday, December 12 for Art is After Dark.

Each space, with a 6-foot, black-draped banquet table, will be ready by 4 p.m. on Friday so you will be able to be set up before the lobby opens at 6 p.m. Parking for unloading and reloading your art and supplies will be relatively easy—close to the doors with no steps to climb. We expect many shoppers on Friday for Art is After Dark: Winter Arts Festival and Saturday for the Holiday House Tour. Expect shoppers to range from the “young and hip” to the “young at heart.”

Artisan names with the type of art being offered will be listed in Tour invitation, advertising, and press releases. Photographs of artisan art and brief biographies will be included with the Holiday House Tour program and on the Museum website. Leading up to the event, the artists will be featured on the Museum’s social media sites. The sales commission will be 30% for art and products sold or commissioned during the event.
