Standish Arts & Crafts Market
ONE DAY ONLY - Saturday, June 22, 9am-5pm
Art is officially back in the Park! We had a wonderful comeback in 2018, working with the Railroad Days Festival Committee to create the Standish Arts & Crafts Market. Over 1,500 people strolled through the park, enjoying art, music, food, and children’s activities. Standish Arts & Crafts Market will take place ONE DAY ONLY Saturday, June 22, 9am-5pm. Please join us!
With our partnership with Railroad Days Festival, artists and fine crafters will enjoy the atmosphere and standards of Art in the Park, built over a 30-year history, with the crowd that attends the festival. Visitors to Standish Arts & Crafts Market will enjoy artist and crafter demonstrations, booths, live music, local food, with family art activities, including a trolley to and from the park.

SUBMIT YOU WORK
Join us for an arts & crafts market in Standish Arboretum - a shady, tree-filled park, beside the Knox County Courthouse in historic downtown Galesburg, Illinois. There will be regular trolleys to and from the park.
We are seeking to jury artists and crafters working in a variety of media - craft, painting, drawing, photography, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, metalwork, glass, fiber, paper, wood, textiles, and mixed media. All items for sale must be the art or handiwork of the exhibiting artist(s) and crafter(s).
Artists and crafters will keep 100% of their sales from the market, and are also responsible for applicable sales taxes.
EMERGING ARTISTS - MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
The Emerging Artist Exhibition will feature selected area junior and senior high school students. Selected students will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to set up, display their original art, and staff the booth in a professional venue.
Participating students will be limited to 1–5 pieces of work in any medium, will need to work shifts to staff the exhibition during the Standish Arts & Crafts Market, and will need to set up and take down their own work. Please note that emerging artists’ work will not be available for sale; this will be an exhibition only. A Standish Arts & Crafts Market volunteer will be onsite to assist students that day. Artists should begin setting up work by 8:00am on Saturday. Please complete and return this form to the Galesburg Civic Art Center, 114 E. Main Street, Galesburg, IL 61401, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, by Saturday, June 8, 2019.
