Artist Registration

Artist Registration & Event Outline

Registration is currently open for the December 7th, 2013 show- please read this page complete and send form below.

Exhibiting at the Cincinnati Holiday Art Show
The Cincinnati artist community knows the show has experienced good success in past years, but we are well aware times are hard and sales have slowed with the economy. We will select Greater Cincinnati artists to display their art to our holiday shoppers. The show offers art of all media—textiles, pottery, photography, watercolors, oils, jewelry and a whole lot more. Apply now to be considered for our show. We are interested in any Cincinnati artist with quality work that displays original creativity and has realistic pricing. The issue is we want you to sell and we want our shoppers to find art they can afford to purchase. We encourage a range of items priced from $10 to $300. You are free to have items priced as needed—we are just suggesting what we feel our shoppers are interested in.

You will be notified of acceptance as soon as possible. We will notify you using your email and expect a reply within five days of the email being sent. We may try to phone you as well if we do not get a timely reply.

Date & Location
The Cincinnati Holiday Art Show is held at North Presbyterian Church (same location as past years sales and the Northside Winter Farmers Market), 4222 Hamilton Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45223—of course, in the rocking neighborhood of Northside—on Saturday, December 7th, 2013 from 10am to 4pm. The church is located in the heart of the Northside Business District. Setup begins at 7:30am the morning of the event. Teardown may not begin until 4pm.

Your Exhibiting Space
To be clear—this is an indoor event. There are two sizes of spaces for Cincinnati artists: the first is 8′ x 4′ ($30) and the second is 8′ x 8′ ($40). We will determine what space you will be assigned, and it may not be what you requested. We will assign space with the interest of pairing you next to artists that are not displaying the same medium as yours, but please note this may not always be possible. If you must have electricity, please make sure to note that in your comments on the registration request form. Access to electricity is very limited, so please understand you may not have access to it. If you plan on using electricity, please bring 50-100 feet of extension cords and duct tape.

We encourage you to be serious about the quality of your display. You must be able to bring all of your own tables and chairs. All tables must be covered and have appropriate displays. Show management reserves the right to request you remove anything we consider inappropriate. There are no refunds for any reason after acceptance to the show.

Silent Auction
A silent auction will be taking place during the show. Every exhibiting Cincinnati artist is requested to donate an item of their work. Here is a cool thing: the art you donate will have a minimum bid of 20% of the value you place on it. You may donate 100% of the proceeds from your item being auctioned or you may request to retain up to 50% of the highest bid. All proceeds from the silent auction will support the Child Wellness Fund’s local programs for children and families. The item can be given to the silent auction volunteer at the time you arrive and begin to set up your space. The close of the auction will be at the close of the event, and all payments will be collected as soon as possible. Payment to you might take as long as ten days from the close of the show. If payment is not secured, you will not be paid but your work will be returned.
