Call For Artists. The Holiday Collective Show

The Holiday Collective Show

December 7 to 11

Artscape Youngplace

Shaw @ Queen

Do you want to be part of one of the city’s most dynamic art districts this holiday season to feature your art or handmade design?

Join us at our sixth annual holiday show at the Artscape Youngplace, from December 7 to December 11, in the heart of the Queen West art district.  It’s a chance to display your art, original prints, jewelry, textiles or unique food products. One of the benefits of the show is that we staff the gallery so you don’t have to be there.

There is more than one way to be part of the show.  You can choose to be featured in the full show or our special one-day  showcase.  As an artisan you will have an individual display.  Artists will have their own 8x4 foot wall.

Interested?  To apply, please forward three images of your work, with the price range and material used as well as a brief bio or link to your website to thecollectiveshow(at)gmail(dot)com.  The application deadline is Oct. 15.  Space is limited.

Thank you for choosing The Collective.

Update:  Thank you to all of you who took the time to apply to the show.  We will contact you by November 1 if you are being considered for the holiday show.
