2019 FOUNDRY ARTISTS HOLIDAY SHOW

                               2019 Foundry Artists Holiday Show

 Show Dates: December 5-8, December 13-15

Welcome to the Foundry Show, now in our 37th year.  We are a unique group of artists that self-produces an annual 7 day holiday sale that runs over the course of two weeks. To accomplish this, membership participates in the creation and running of the show by doing committee work and working hours in our store during the show (please refer to the Membership Code of Conduct for more specific information regarding hours and committee work.) We invite you to apply and join the Foundry Artists Association.

MISSION: The Foundry Artists Association represents the artist/artisan who creates work or directly supervises work within their own studio. We seek the best creative voices in order to form a fine art and fine craft show that highlights the distinctive, original vision of the individual artist(s).

STANDARDS: All art must be original and made in the US. It must be created by the artist or under the artist’s direct supervision in studio. All work should be expertly executed without technical flaws, should demonstrate imagination and the individual's artistic vision. All media are acceptable except objects from commercially available kits, parts or patterns, materials made from premanufactured molds, embellished commercial objects and clothing, mass-produced or factory made items. No buy/sell, no seconds. It is our exclusive right and responsibility to remove work that is not in compliance.

If you plan on selling jewelry please mark the box (even if it’s a third category). Spots for jewelry are limited and, if you exhibit jewelry without applying with it in the Jewelry category, you will be asked to remove jewelry from your booth.
