The Decatur Area Arts Council is accepting applications for artists to sell original art and fine crafts at their annual holiday shop in the Anne Lloyd Gallery.
Known as Xmas ARTicles for the last 16 years, a new name is being launched this year – HOLIDAY GIFT SHOPPE! Artists can expect the same easy process for consigning art work plus three additional weeks of sales.
Located in the Madden Arts Center, 125 N. Water St. in downtown Decatur, DAAC’s HOLIDAY GIFT SHOPPE will open three weeks earlier than usual on the evening of November 8. The shoppe will continue through December 28. Artists are encouraged to submit a wide variety of affordable “gifty” types of items such as jewelry and other wearable art, ornaments, ceramics, woodworking, textiles, painting, photography, decorations, floral wreaths, etc. Unique items are welcome.
Interested artists should contact Sue Powell at the Decatur Area Arts Council, 125 N. Water St., 217-423-3189 for further information and an application form. Application forms are also available on the website at www.decaturarts.org. Applications are due by October 1.
