When you bring your piece in you will be asked to sign the sign-in sheet and fill out your title card which will have your name, the title of the piece, the medium and price or NFS (not for sale). There is NO pressure to sell or have a price on your work; it's not the purpose of the show. Any sales made the night of the show will be negotiated between you and the client; paying you directly. Only original works of art may be for sale but NFS is fine too. If your work is after / copied from another artist it may not be for sale but you will note the artist's name on the card as shown in the example choices below wen you get here:
Suzy D Artmaker
$200 or NFS
Suzy D Artmaker
Blue Garden after Monet
*All artwork will be handled with the utmost care but by entering a piece into the show you agree to hold Bonny Leibowitz / The Bonny Studio and The Encaustic Center free from any liability in the event of an accident or damage to your art piece. If you prefer not to enter a piece due to this agreement, do not submit a piece. I have never had an accident with a piece here but feel its best I let you know the conditions for entering your work.
Please bring a food item such as cheese, crackers, chips, dips, cakes, deserts, fruits, veggies, sushi, tacos, nachos, bean dip or any party / finger foods you can think of. Please bring serving tray and utensils. We will need an extra ice chest and paper goods such as plates, cups, napkins, utensils and trash bags; 13 gallon and or 33 gallon. Part of the great success of the shows has been all the amazing goodies everyone prepares and brings! Let's make this a fantastic treat for all!!! Any leftovers and all trays should be taken home at the end of the eve or picked up asap after with the artwork.
We will need help setting up on 10/28 or 10/29 and clean up on October 29th at 8pm or the 30th noon to 3pm.. If you are able to help, please let me know.
I will be making an email invite for us to copy and send to our family and friends! Please be sure to tell all your friends and family about the big event! I will also be sharing on facebook.
