The Berkeley Arts Council is seeking artists and artisans to participate in the 2011 Holiday Art and Craft Market in downtown Martinsburg from November 23 through the Christmas shopping period. The Market will be set up in a currently unoccupied store on Queen Street.
Information and sign-up meetings for interested artists and artisans are set for Tuesday, September 6, 6-8:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 11, 1-4 p.m. in the Martinsburg Room at the Martinsburg Public Library.
Artists will participate in an informal co-op and will be asked to pay a fee of $30 plus a 20% commission. Participants will help with the setup and operation of the gallery. Space is limited so artists will be encouraged to sign up for the Market at one of these meetings.
More details as well as guidelines for submission of art and crafts are posted on the Berkeley Arts Council web site at http://www.berkeleyartswv.org/Holidays.php. Questions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; or telephone 304-596-0873.
The Holiday Market is a collaboration between the Berkeley Arts Council, ArtBerkeley, Inc. and the Heritage Craft Center of the Eastern Panhandle.
