Beth Baldwin, the woman behind the awesome narwhal and squirrel-filled local business Tigerflight, is coordinating a new art event with the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities NEXT MONTH called Arts on N. She's looking for DC Metro area artists and crafters to participate by selling their wares and helping activate the Shaw neighborhood for two weekends in August. She's looking for 22 vendors each day for the four days of the event and can work with sellers who might be interested in vending for more than one day.
WHO: DC Metro area artists and crafters
WHAT: Arts on N
WHEN: August 7th & 8th and August 14th & 15th
WHERE: N Street NW (in the Shaw neighborhood, a'course!)
HOW: contact Beth Baldwin at email@example.com for information!
Also! In addition to the outside craft fair, there will be an affordable art fair called Paper Pushers where they're looking for artists to sell original works on paper (size restrictions do apply - no bigger than 20" in any one dimension and nothing priced above $200) where people can buy the artwork right there and go. Artists will receive full sale price of artwork less any processing fees that may occur.
If you have questions or ideas that you'd like to share, please make sure you contact Beth at the e-mail address listed above. And if you plan on participating, let me know!
