Get Your Art Ready for Wine Art and Music Festival The annual Main Street festival sponsored by the Greater Brighton Chamber of Commerce is scheduled for July 30 to August 1. The Guild will have a 3-tent space in front of CoBach and will display art by Guild members outside in tents along with Brighton with Art exhibition winners inside of CoBach. About half of the tent will be devoted to work $200 and under. Artists who have craft items and small fine art pieces are invited to bring 10 items at a time which can be replenished when sold.
Let's put our best out there as this is the main interaction with the Guild for many festival visitors. Frame up your inventory or get busy and make something fantastic and new! Lower priced items such as prints and small paintings tend to sell best, but we have sold items for $500 and more. It’s been a long year of few exhibits SO take advantage of this chance to sell some work. art_festival__faq_and_inventory.pdf Click here for inventory forms and FAQs
Did we mention there is no entry fee?
This exposure at the Festival is one of the benefits of being an Guild member.
