    CALL TO ARTISTS

    for the

    DECATUR ARTS FESTIVAL 2019

    Saturday, May 25 | 10am - 6pm

    Sunday, May 26 | 11am - 5pm

    Application Deadline April 5

    Space Reservation with Intent to Participate

    The DEADLINE of APRIL 5th is rapidly approaching for you to send in your information and have your $20 paid IF you want to be considered to participate in the MAGG Booth.  Details are stated below.

    The prestigious and well-established Decatur Arts Festival is coming up May 25th and 26th.  The Metal Arts Guild of Georgia (MAGG) will be participating in the Decatur Arts Festival Artists' Market for our 9th consecutive year.  In 2012 the festival started placing guilds and organizations on the Plaza (close access to MARTA) with wonderful results!  Since then our sales have improved with each year.  There will be 6 artists representing MAGG and selling their work in our double-sized 20-foot booth.  All artists who are current members of MAGG are invited to apply to be selected to be one of the six.  Here are this year's guidelines / rules / policies and costs.  Please review these rules carefully.

    1. There is a $20 non-refundable application fee.
    2. All artists must provide 2 quality .jpeg photos of their work.  The photos will be blind reviewed by jurors and 6 participants selected.  The goal is to have 4 veteran participants and 2 participants that are new to the festival experience.  The photos of the selected artists may also be used in promoting MAGG's participation in the Festival.
    3. 2 additional artists will be selected to be alternates.
    4. In order to cover the expenses of the booth itself, miscellaneous festivals expenses, credit card fees and the tent set-up and rental, it will cost each artist $185 to participate.  Then 15% of your sales will go to MAGG.
    5. All 6 participants will meet as a group with Lisa Heller on a date TBD and before May 2nd to go over set up and use of Square for all income processing.  All of the sales are processed to MAGG directly and within a month participants will receive their 85% share of their sales in a check from MAGG.
    6. Since one of the goals of participation in the Festival is to promote MAGG, the booth set-up uses a uniform display at the Festival for all participating artists.  MAGG will provide the display materials.  The uniform display was very well-received both by last year's participants and the buying public.
    7. At the same group meeting, the group will decide logistics for moving, hauling, & return of equipment, such as banners, tables, glass cubes and display materials.  The participants will also discuss the uniform display set-up.
    8. All 6 participants are responsible for assisting with selecting, picking up & setting up of all MAGG equipment on Friday, May 24th and taking down, returning and putting it away on Sunday, May 26th.

    If you are interested in being one of the 6 artists:

    1. Email your name, cell number, email address, 2 .jpeg photos of your work and whether or not you have participated previously to ggg.festivals@gmail.com.  Please put "Participation in Decatur Arts Festival" as the subject.
    2. Pay the $20 non-refundable application fee via the MAGG website.

    The DEADLINE to receive your information and have your $20 paid is April 5th.  The names of everyone who expresses interest and has paid the $20 through the website will be provided to the jurors on April 6th and selected participants and alternates will be notified on April 10th.

    If you are selected, you, you must pay your $185 booth fee by May 15th or an alternate will be invited to take your place.

    Please note that all participants must commit to being present at the planning meeting, must be present for equipment pick-up & set-up, for the duration of the festival, and present for tear down & pack-up and return to storage.
