Call for entry - American Craft Council

American Craft Council Show
Apr. 27 — Apr. 27 2009
San Francisco, California
http://www.craftcouncil.org

The American Craft Council is now accepting AltCraft applications for show in San Francisco!

Show dates are August 14-16.

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 27.

Sixteen makers will be juried into this bustling section, which celebrates the innovative techniques and materials of the burgeoning handmade movement. This is an opportunity for talented artists and indie designers to gain national exposure at a well-established show.

Located at Fort Mason Center on the San Francisco waterfront between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge, this show features 250 artists and serves a well-established audience of over 10,000 Bay Area craft enthusiasts.

The average booth is valued at $1,000 but as part of the Council’s commitment to indie crafters, the cost of participation is just $350, which includes a 10-ft skirted table, electricity and lighting trusses in a shared loft space. Plus, there’s no application fee!

Applicants are eligible only if they have NOT shown in an American Craft Council show previously. Embellished commercially-bought objects (e.g., tee shirts, note cards, etc.) are not eligible.

Please submit:

(3) low-resolution images of your work
A brief description of your work (materials, dimensions, techniques)
Your contact information (mailing and email addresses)
Send submissions and inquiries to Erika at altcraft@craftcouncil.org.

Finalists will be announced in May.
