Call for Artists: Art Within Reach – Art for the Holidays 2014

Deadline September 19: Art Within Reach is seeking area artists to present at Art for the Holidays 2014, on December 12-13, 2014, in Collingswood, NJ. An artist showcase and sales event offered in a unique and casual setting, featuring art and fine crafts of many types, styles, and price ranges. We have space for 30+ artists. All work must be handmade by the artist. No assembled kits, resale, or other third-party representation. Each space is to showcase a single artist. No teams or groups. Artist spaces are at least 10 feet in length and approximately 3 feet in depth; space to accommodate up to an 8-foot table or equivalent. All artist spaces are indoors for this AWR event. This is a rain or shine event.

Art Within Reach has a new home! AWR has outgrown our original location. To facilitate more of the wonderful artists we have had to turn away in the past, we have teamed up with The Factory right here in Collingswood to show in their cool and funky maker space. The Factory venue gives us more room for more artists, and an even more unique atmosphere. This evolution has caused us to adjust a few things in our format and requirements, and add some new features. Past exhibitors and applicants please read through these instructions carefully to understand what is changing going forward.

The first important change is to the dates and times. We have moved our traditional early December dates out a week to occur on Collingswood’s Second Saturday weekend. On the second Saturday of each month, the town of Collingswood opens its sidewalks along Haddon Avenue to musicians and artists, and many of the shops stay open late as well. The Factory also has a tradition of being open to the public on Second Saturdays, presenting free live entertainment, which becomes quite a crowd draw. All that, combined with the holiday shopping season, we could not help but join the party! The Friday evening will also feature live musical entertainment. Because we have shifted the Saturday timeframe later, we have also eliminated our usual Sunday hours.
