More Information on Olathe Station Art Fair

The Olathe Station Art Fair rules to get in can be found at olathestationartfair.org

Rules are extensive and the online sign-ups on Zapplication.com are closed as of 3/22/18 after an extension of one week.

However, it is possible to sign up at the First Olathe Art Gallery as we will continue to take entries to artists willing to pay $150 for a 10X10 tent space. Tent not included. Artist is responsible for his own tent. Same as the rules indicated on the Zapplication- Olathe Station Art Fair website. Only benefit to OVA and Gallery members is not going through the jury-in process and convenience of not submitting pictures of their work for review…and not opening a Zapplication account online. In addition, all artists will be fed a lunch on both days.

 

In addition, there will be 8 spots for up and coming artists in a 10×20 tent in which OVA grids will be used as a fundraising project for OVA. Each artist will pay $50 per 5×5 space. These spots are restricted to first time fair artists, preferably students or special needs artists. If you qualify as first fair, student, or special needs you may apply and there may be sponsorships available to cover booth fees. First come first served. Contact Dave Stewart or ED Roache.

 

Artists are responsible for all sales and must collect/submit taxes. Applications must be submitted by May 1st as each artist will be handed a tax packet. Exact numbers of packets are needed and time to obtain them.

January Meeting on Thursday

Our next meeting is coming up on Thursday (the 25th).  6pm at the First Gallery of Olathe, as usual.  Directions and A Map

We have a few things to do this time.

  • Time to pay your annual membership dues ($25)
  • Elections for group officers will be held
  • I think we’ll be talking about this summer’s art fair, also.

Also:

  • If you’re a current member and you’d like to have a member page on the website,  please contact me.
  • If you have any art-related news to share, contact me or let someone at the meeting know and we’ll get it up here in the news and events section.

This is a big meeting, especially since we’ve had to skip some recently.   I hope we get a good turnout.
