2014 MF ArtMarket: an art market you can get into

Saturday, September 27, 2014, from 10am-5pm

Application process now closed.

Over the past several years, the Mattress Factory has hosted local artists and crafters during semi-annual CraftFactory events. This fall, the museum is seeking painters, photographers, illustrators, sculptors, printmakers, designers, etc. to vend during a pop-up ArtMarket on September 27, 2014. Artists who “think outside the box” and create artwork that may appeal to Mattress Factory visitors are welcome to apply. Prints, framed artwork, drawings, paintings, sculptures and art books are all welcome. Artists are encouraged to offer cards, posters, or reproductions of their work, as we hope to offer a variety of price points.

Vendors will be provided with an eight-foot table to display and sell their work to museum visitors and attendees of the ArtMarket. Available spaces include the MF lobby with wall space for hanging work and our tented outdoor garden area. The 2014 ArtMarket will coincide with the Artists in Residence exhibition, on view in the museum’s galleries at 500 Sampsonia Way and 1414 Monterey Street.

A panel of MF staff members will select vendors based on strength and style of work. All applications must be received by Monday, September 1, 2014. Artists who are accepted to vend will be notified by Friday, September 5, 2014. Once accepted, vendors are required to pay a non-refundable vending fee to reserve their space - due Friday, September 12, 2014. Detailed information regarding set-up times, Internet access, and other particulars will be emailed to accepted vendors at a later date. Any questions may be directed to
