The Island Artisans Association has again been offered the beautiful heritage space of Dales Gallery on Fisgard Street in the heart of Chinatown for the months of July and August, 2012.
Last summer, with only a few weeks notice, twenty IAA artisans took advantage of the Dales Gallery opportunity and their work was well received by the public. This year we are looking for at least twice as many participants in order to offer the public a wider range of product. This is also a great opportunity to showcase the work of our artisans to the Victoria market, thus fostering a greater awareness and appreciation locally for fine craft from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. This is a 60/40 consignment sales framework.
We need an expression of interest from individual artisans by March 1, 2012, in order to move ahead with this project. There will be a $15 fee for jurying new work.
if you are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll supply further contact info.
