2nd Saturday Artist Market is expanding!

The next 2nd Saturday Artist Market is June 13, which if you've been paying attention you'll know is the same weekend as Studio Stroll in the neighboring River Arts District. In anticipation of great crowds all over the area, we're expanding the 2nd Saturday Artist Market in several ways:

* 10x10 tented booth fees are now just $30: 2 artists may share a space, but at least one of you needs to have the tent

* un-tented 'table' space is now available: as long as the sun is shining, we'll try to make room for everyone we can, so if you've been interested in applying to the Market but daunted by lack of tent, fear not! For the June Market, you need only have a table, and like the booth spaces, two artists may share a 6' table. Table space is $20. If it goes well in June, we may keep doing it throughout the season.

We'll be keeping the application process open until we just can't fit in any more vendors, and once you've been juried in, you may simply submit your request to participate in future Markets (the jurying still exists to keep a good balance of medium).

Go to the event blog for Market applications - the table space feature is brand new, so if you don't see it on the application form, just write it in. And if you have any questions, email 'info' at ''.
