Applications have been sent via snail mail to current and past participants of the Artisans Road Trip. But if you haven't received one - please click above to find a printable version of the Prospectus!
October may seem far away, but now is the time to apply to be a part of the fifteenth annual Artisans Road Trip! Applications need to be postmarked by February 15th, 2019 in order to be accepted. Why so early in the year? Quite simply, it takes a lot of time and behind the scenes work to make a great event like A.R.T. happen. Once we have our membership finalized, then we get to work on designing the brochure, updating the website, and beginning to get the word out about all of our artists!
Why should you be a part of A.R.T.? For the artisans involved, the Road Trip is a powerful networking and marketing opportunity. In addition to the October weekend event (Sat, Oct 12 & Sun, Oct 13), participating artists also benefit from year-round advertising with thousands of brochures distributed; a regularly updated blog; 24/7 website; plus group gallery exhibitions in Worthington (MN), Storm Lake, Spencer, and Clear Lake!
The Artisans Road Trip is organized and run by artists for artists. Together we work to increase art exposure, introducing new art style to the community and new customers to local artists.
AND WE WANT YOU TO JOIN US!
Questions? Feel free to drop us a line at ArtisansRoadTrip@gmail.com, or give Haley McAndrews (President, A.R.T.) a call at (320) 237-7351.
You can email your three images to the official A.R.T. email address at ArtisansRoadTrip@gmail.com instead of mailing a disk or USB drive in (but application forms and entry fee must still be mailed)!
