Some info for you regarding the Hawkesbury Artists & Artisans Trail 'Pop Up Market' 19th July.
This month the HAAT goes into its 8th year (www.haat.com.au). Even though the MTAS have not been a member since inception, the Trail has proved to be a very helpful and successful tool in promoting the Arts & Craft for local Art groups & Individual artists in the Hawkesbury.
The idea of this particular event is to help promote and act as a lead up to the yearly HAAT Open Studio weekend 23rd & 24th August.
As a member of MTAS you are entitled to exhibit at both events.
First Event Sat 19th July: The 'Pop Up Market' this year will only be for 1 day in the Magnolia Mall, Richmond. It is hoped that all Trail members will be participating, so space could be an issue. In view of this MTAS will only be allowed 2 screens. Members will be permitted to exhibit 1 work at no charge. (2 small works will be permitted also) There will be no commission charged on sales at this event. Craft people are also welcome and there will be tables available, or you can bring your own. We have been requested to keep table covers in black or white only. Also demonstrating artists welcome.
Please notify us that you are exhibiting ahead of the day so we can co-ordinate.
Email your notification of your entry and works to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Jenny Lawrence 0245 732 541
Times: (Sat Jul 19th.) Work can come in and be set up as early as 8.15am. (Event 9.00 till 4.00pm).
Second Event 23rd & 24th Aug: The MTAS plan to use the Magnolia Mall as their 'Open Studio' venue once again. Apart from tenants in the Mall who may also like to display their wares on tables outside their shops, this space will be for MTAS exclusively for the weekend. We will be able to have all our screens filled with MTAS members works and also a larger display of craft. MTAS members are welcome to do demonstrations. John Shields demonstrated last year at this event and sold his art work.
Final details to be advised later.
