Call to artists for Holiday Member Show

If you are an artist member of the Marlborough Art Center, we invite you to participate in our Holiday Member Show.  This show will run from late November through February with the goal of introducing the Art Center, our artists and their work to buyers at a time when people are looking for that unique holiday gift.

This is not a juried show but there will be a committee that will award prizes.  Each artist will be able to submit up to 3 pieces.  There will be no size restrictions and both 2 dimensional painters and 3 dimensional sculptors/jewelers will be encouraged to participate.  And to add a little to the artist’s holiday cheer, the Art Center will only retain 20% of the sale price rather than the customary 30%.

If you are a paid up member your Entry Fee will be $10 for the 1st piece and $5 (each) for the 2nd and 3rd pieces.  If you have not paid 2018 dues or are a Non-member, you will be expected to pay 2019 dues in advance along with the Entry Fees stated above.

We have a lot to do to pull this show together and we would ask for your help to get it done.  The first thing we need is a headcount of how many artists to expect.  If you feel that you would like to participate, please send an email to as soon as conveniently possible.

If you feel that you can help in any other way (planning, hanging, sitting, cash acquisition for prizes, decorating), please let us know that also.  As soon as we can determine that we have enough participating artists, an adequate volunteer staff and enough potential prize money, we will finalize the details and get back to you.

We hope that you will be a part of this show and help us to show the community that Marlborough Art Center should be a first stop for unique holiday gifts.
