Winter Market 2018: Call for Vendors
The Umbrella’s Winter Market is an annual three-day juried show and sale of work in Concord, MA. This sale has been in existence for nearly three decades and has a dedicated following. This year, Winter Market will take place on Friday, November 30 from 1-6pm, Saturday, December 1 from 10am-5pm, and Sunday, December 2 from 1-5 pm.
In addition to the juried vendors and resident artists, The Umbrella will be filled with food and music. The show fee for the three days is $180. We send out a 9,000 piece mailing, an e-blast to our 5,000 person email list, air ads on WBUR, and announcements for the sale will be sent to newspapers in the area. If accepted, we will supply you with cards for your mailing list and a copy of the e-blast for your e-mail list.
If you are interested in applying, please fill out the application and send it to Jess Muise firstname.lastname@example.org along with at least 4 JPEGs of work you wish to show at Winter Market. Please submit images of current work you wish to sell. Please note that because of the ongoing renovation at The Umbrella we will have less room for guest artists this year. Applications are due by 5:00 pm on Saturday, June 16. We will notify you of our decision by June 23. If you are accepted as a vendor, the $180 show fee will be due by June 30.
