BVAL Presents: “Pop Up Art Market” at Post Oak Mall

At the north entrance to the Food Court.


 

Artist & Eligibility

  • Open to all artists. There is no theme. Any works which are politically, religiously or sexually charged will not be accepted. Tasteful nudes are accepted.

  •  There is no requirement to be a member of the Brazos Valley Art League (BVAL).

  •  Entries must meet the deadline for application & payment.

 

Entry Fee

  • Members $0

  • Non-Members $50 (Note that BVAL is planning a Starving Artist Show on Oct 5 in Bryan, so non-members may find it advantageous to become a member and participate in both shows for free.  If you join now, you will be a member through Summer 2020.)

  • There is presently no limit to the number of art pieces and art products based on original art (prints, cards, etc.) per artist.  However, this may change due to space limitations.

 

What You as an Artist Receive:

  • A space in a great location, during a busy Saturday, to showcase and sell your work. August 10th is part of the tax-free weekend.

  • Free advertising via TV, radio, social media, local calendars and print

  • No tax worries – BVAL will take care of collecting and submitting sales tax to the state.

  • Opportunity to talk with potential customers about your work. We hope that many artists will stay with their work and help sell.  Interactions with the public will encourage people to buy art.

  • Opportunity to demonstrate your art. We are looking for artists who want to demonstrate their process for 1-2 hour blocks of time during the sale – sitting and painting, drawing, carving.  This activity helps the public connect with you.    Let Wendy know if you are interested.
