Call for Submissions: Artisan Market

Jul 15th, 2019 - Aug 31st, 2019


The Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) has a limited number of juried booth spaces available for the 2019 annual “Artisan Market” Christmas Art Show and Sale and is inviting any interested local artists and artisans to apply.

Last year there were approximately 15 artists participating with work ranging from Raku ceramics, Silver Jewellery, watercolour, oil and acrylic painting, textiles, functional pottery and more by artists such as Voyager Art and Tile, Larry Reese, Candice Meyer, Dawn Candy and Pat Matheson. 

The Artisan Market is set up throughout the MAG’s permanent historic display area, Remarkable Red Deer, two fine art gallery spaces and, new this year, the large multi-purpose Stewart Discovery Studio space as well. Artists/artisans will be assigned an approximately 10’x10’ space to set up their sales displays in one of these spaces.

This year, the event will be run 5:00pm to 9:00pm the evening of Friday, November 15 and from 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, November 16, 2019.

On Friday evening a special invite is extended to MAG members and their guests to view, purchase from and talk to the artists in a gala evening atmosphere. On Saturday the event will be open to the general public. 

The Artisan Market is held in conjunction with similar seasonal arts and crafts events hosted by the City of Red Deer Recreation Centre, the Norwegian Laft Hus and the Golden Circle. The public will be able to park for free in the Recreation Centre/MAG parking lot and stroll from venue to venue. 

Successful juried artists/artisans will be expected to provide their own booth equipment (tables, chairs, display mounts, etc) but the MAG will provide table cloths for consistency throughout the sales areas.

Cost of this event for a 10’ x 10’ booth space is $60.00.
