Updated 1/15/12: Artists DO NOT need to supply a 12″ x 16″ painting for Tasting Room display. I’ve done this to simplify set up.
Updated 1/10/12: All shows are fully booked with artists, and there is a short waiting list. If you would like to be placed on the list (in case of a cancellation, please contact )
I’m pleased to announce that Moonlight Meadery has agreed to partner with the Londonderry Arts Council for a series of Friday evening art events. The shows will be held at Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry. If you haven’t heard about this company they are a small, but fast-growing mead (honey wine) maker and distributor, and are one of Londonderry’s success stories. Their website is www.moonlightmeadery.com if you’d like to find out more about them.
The shows will be “meet the artist” type events where you will be able to sell pieces on site. I am soliciting a small number of artists these shows, and there are already just a handful of spots still available. We will have 4-5 artists showing at each event, with 3 dates secured. They’re all Friday evening events that will run from 5pm-8pm. Moonlight Meadery will hold wine tastings, and there will be music. Only one date per artist will be considered but you may respond with more than one request. The scheduled exhibits are as follows:
- Friday, January 20th (This show is already filled)
- Friday, February 10th Romance theme (show filled)
- Friday, March 9th “March Moonlight Madness” theme to coincide with the Meadery’s release of “Fury”. (This show is filled)
These will be a free standing shows. If selected, you will be able to bring up to 3 easels with artwork or 2 easels and 1 browse bin. Please also bring a 12” x 16” painting to show in the tasting room as well. I’ll work with you to create an artist bio to appear with this painting. All artists will be located within the Meadery itself, in front of the tall tanks. Each event will be a one night event and artists MUST remain with their works for the duration of the event. Setup is from 4pm-5pm. Depending on turnout, the show may continue a little beyond 8pm. There is no charge to the artist for this exhibit. Entrants will be juried.
This is another unique opportunity to get some publicity, and to get in front of a new audience. If you are interested in participating in this event and would like more info, please use my contact form to get in touch. Thanks!
