Call for Submissions: Pearl Market Artist Showcase
The Create Columbus Commission is pleased to announce a call for entries for the Pearl Market Artist Showcase, a public exhibition and sale of work during the bi-weekly indoor Pearl Market at 20 East Broad Street in downtown Columbus.
Ohio visual artists are invited to submit family-friendly, 2-D work for sale and display during the market’s public hours, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays. More than 2,000 people visit Pearl Market each week, so this is a great way to showcase your work in a different setting. The first installment of the Artist Showcase will run from November – December, when a call for entries will be sent for 2010.
Work will be juried by a panel of Arts and Culture representatives from the Create Columbus Commission. Artists will work with the Commission to hang art work in the space for display the first weekend in November. Sales of work will be handled by Pearl Market staff, who will be on site at all times during public hours. To offset costs Peal Market, part of the nonprofit Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District, will collect a 10 percent commission on any work sold.
To be considered for the first installment of the showcase, please e-mail 3 to 5 digital images, along with exact sizes of each piece, an artist bio/statement, and contact information to [email protected] by Friday, November 13 at 5:00 pm.
