Holiday Artist Market

About Holiday Artist Market

The Holiday Artist Market is Emerge Gallery’s annual holiday sale featuring handmade fine arts and crafts. The gallery is set up in a booth style with each booth featuring one artist or business. The sale will kick off with our members preview night on Thursday, December 1 and the show will remain up through December 22.

Holiday Sale

There are two options for artist booths.

Option 1

Artists are set up and present December 1 for the Jingle Art Jam from 5:15pm-7:45pm, and the First Friday ArtWalk on December 2 from 4:45pm-8:15pm.

Option 2

Artists have a booth set up from December 1 - 22 but are not present for events.

Terms and Conditions

The market is open to all fine arts and crafts, and holds 10-12 booth spaces.

During the two day-period in which Option 1 (see dates above) the artist retains 100% of sales. Anytime the artist is not at their booth or sales are ran through Emerge’s POS, all sales are run on normal consignment (70% for artist, 30% for Emerge). Artists are responsible for monitoring their own sales on December 1 and December 2.

Option 2 artists set up a booth space and all sales are run on a normal consignment (70% for artist, 30% for Emerge).

Any sales made through Emerge during Holiday Artist Market will be paid by January 15, 2023.

Booth spaces will be available in both of our exhibition gallery spaces the Edwards Gallery, and the Wooten Gallery.
