The Affordable Art & Artisan Fair is a project to create a regular opportunity for local creatives to exhibit and sell – it’s not a “moneymaker” for either ARTbop or the Black Sheep Bar & Grill. In fact we are both sponsoring the event with our contributions of time and effort. Birgitt Shannon, the Katikati artist and ARTbop contributor, who is organising the participants is also providing her time and energy on a pro bono basis to get the Fair off the ground.
Here’s Birgitt’s call to artists!
Affordable Art & Artisan Fair
ARTbop and The Black Sheep Café have gotten together to create the ‘Affordable Art & Artisan Fair’ which will take place on the last Sunday of every month excluding December starting on the 26th November and run from 11am – 3pm.
This event will be open to local artists and artisans who produce high quality, original, handmade pieces. We are looking for a commitment to four fairs (Nov, Jan, Feb & March) at a cost of $40 ($10 per fair). The great news is there will be no commission.
The Black Sheep has a large outdoor area ideal for setting up trestle tables. Much of it is under cover. There is also a big area where marquees can be set up. Although the venue is large there will be a selection process if there isn’t room for everyone.
ARTbop will be conducting a widespread advertising campaign and this, along with the good food at Black Sheep and the wonderful ambience of the venue, are sure to make this fair a huge ongoing success. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of it. Email your details including your website to Birgitt at firstname.lastname@example.org
