---- — NCCCA seeks vendors for Open Air Artist Market

PLATTSBURGH — The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts will host the Summer 2013 Open Air Artist Market, where local artists may display and sell their fine art.

The event, which is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 13, during Mayor’s Cup, is held on the front lawn of the NCCCA. It will also include family activities, class demonstrations, silent auctions and raffles, live performances and more.

Potential artists must submit a completed application, application fee ($40 for NCCCA members, $50 for non-members) and two photographs of works to be sold. Photos will be used for marketing purposes and can be sent with the application by mail or as JPEGS to Applications are due by Saturday, June 1. Two artists may apply together only if both applicants collectively had a hand in creating the work submitted (attach a brief explanation on the nature of the collaboration); otherwise artists must apply separately.

The NCCCA Artist Market is a producer-only event (artists make what they sell).

Vendors are asked to bring their own tables and booth accessories, such as tents or signs for their booths, which should be limited to a 10-foot by 10-foot area. Vendors will be able to set up at 9 a.m. on July 13.
