Booth sizes will be ten feet wide and six feet deep and will cost $85.00.  All artists will be responsible for their own display system. i.e. racking, easels, tables, etc. There are a limited number of free tables available so please specify if you need one on the application form attached.

For those artists who prefer a table top display i.e. pottery, you will be given two large round tables. Prices – same as above.

**Please note that your display area will not be larger than the specified size. Please plan your display prior to arriving at the show in order to ensure that you will fit into a 10 x 6 booth. You may wish to have a booklet on your table showing all available work and then place your extra work under your table or in your vehicle.
