Decatur Holiday Marketplace 2014

Artist Application 2014


Artist Market:

All artwork or items sold at DHM must be the original handmade work of the artist. This is

a juried show with a limited number of booths. Resale and/or fundraising products whether for

profit or charity are not accepted.



Applications will be accepted July 15‐Sep 15, 2014. You will be able to access the

application on our website as of July 15th. We will send out notifications of acceptance by October

15. We will not consider your application if it is not complete or it is received after the deadline.



Application Fee $25 (non‐refundable)

Booth Fee $135

Table Rental $15 per table (2 table limit)

All fees are tax deductible as they are paid to Clairemont Elementary PTA



If you are not accepted the booth fee will be returned to you after October 15.

For those accepted, we offer a 7‐day grace period after acceptance to request a full

refund if you are unable to participate. After that time no refunds will be given.


Shared Booths:

A booth may be shared with another artist but both artists must submit an application,

pay the application fee and send in samples of their own artwork. Each artist will be juried

separately and both must be accepted to the show.



Booth spaces are approx. 8’ by 6’. Booth sites are in classrooms, lining the hallways, and in

the Media Center. You must provide your own table, chairs, backdrops, displays, extension cords,

extra lighting, etc. You are responsible for staffing your own booth, and must be open

for the duration of the Marketplace.


Arrival and Setup:

Exhibit areas will be open for set‐up beginning at 4:00pm on the Friday of the show.

Do no arrive before 4pm on Friday. We are located in an elementary school so please

understand that our students do not leave school until 3:00 pm. Our committees need time to

move desks and clear out space for your booths. You will receive your booth assignment when

you check in at the Information Table located by the front entrance to the school.



There will be a “loading zone” open for artists in front of the school and in the

parking lot by the left wing of the school. There is a level handicapped access for hand trucks and

wheeled carts on the right wing of the school. It is the artist responsibility to haul and set

up the booth. We will have volunteers that will assist with unloading and moving your items to

your booth since there is a short time frame for setting up displays.


Assumption of Risk:

You assume all risks for loss, damage, and injury to your merchandise,

your displays, yourself and anyone assisting you in your booth at your direction.

The show runs until 8:00pm on Saturday evening, and all artists are expected to keep

their booths open until closing time.
