ArtReach St. Croix is looking for artists to be part of the 2019 Downtown Pop-up Shop, a seasonal showcase for art created in the St. Croix Valley.
The ArtReach Downtown Pop-up Shop is a holiday gift gallery with high quality, well-crafted pieces with price points ranging from impulse buy to signature showpieces. We are looking for pottery, contemporary jewelry, fiber arts, woodworking, printmaking, paintings, glass art and sculpture. In an effort to create the most beautiful and cohesive pop-up gallery, we may limit the number of artists in a particular medium.
Consideration for participation in the 2019 ArtReach Downtown Pop-up Shop is limited to artist members of ArtReach St. Croix.* We rely on our participating artists to contribute their best work. ArtReach Downtown is a high visibility effort at a busy time of year.
Please consider volunteering to work two or more shifts during the run of the pop-up shop. Collectively, we will tap into all of our networks to spread the word about the unique holiday shopping opportunity. We need everyone to chip in.
The commission rate for ArtReach Downtown is tiered as follows:
Participating Artists: 40%
Gallery Volunteers with at least 2 shifts: 35%
Gallery Volunteers with at least 4 shifts: 30%
