Local Artists Wanted for First Friday Event
Main Street Greenville’s First Friday event will once again feature the Artisan Stroll! The goal of this event is to create a temporary “gallery” throughout our historic downtown district as well as curate interactive experiences to foster community involvement and support of the arts. The event will take place on Friday, August 3rd from 6:00 - 9:00 pm in the downtown district.
The committee is looking for artisans and crafters to display, demonstrate, and sell their work at this interactive event designed to promote the local art community.
All local artists and talented creative individuals are invited to sell and/or demonstrate their craft. The artists will join many downtown businesses who will be staying open late and other activities that will be planned for the event.
Main Street Greenville is also pleased to announce the incorporation of a brand new art contest to the Artisan Stroll! This juried contest is open to all accepted participants of the Artisan Stroll, although participation in the contest is not a requirement to display your work at the Artisan Stroll.
The theme of the contest is “Shades of Summer.” Artists are encouraged to submit pieces which celebrate the variety of hues, intense saturations, and unique light quality that the summer season brings. Pieces of all mediums will be accepted for participation in the contest and artists will have a chance to win cash prizes of up to $200! The art contest has been generously sponsored by the Rotary Club of Greenville, Ohio.
The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. The Greenville Ohio Rotary Club meets every Tuesday afternoon for lunch from 12:00- 1:00 PM in the Community Center at BRC's Chestnut Village.
Registration to showcase and sell your items is $20.00 per space, which is a donation to Main Street Greenville (a non-profit organization). The deadline to sign-up is July 20th, 2018. The vendor application can be found HERE. For more information or to receive a vendor application, contact committee member Susan Fowble at 937-548-1414 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
