THIS WILL BE A JURIED SHOW:

The MacKenzie will ensure a balanced number of booths per medium in order to create an excellent shopping experience for guests and a successful show for exhibitors.

DISPLAY AREA SPACE ALLOTMENT

Artists accepted to participate in Holiday Bazaart are assigned one 8’ x 10’ display space or a 16’ x 10’ double booth. A 6 ft. table and 2 chairs are available upon request. Artists are responsible for their display set-up and take-down during the time allotted, and must supply their own display equipment, hanging supplies etc. The MacKenzie will provide laminate space numbers to display which will assist our visitors in locating booths as listed in the program however, artists are encouraged to have a sign clearly showing their name. Once the show is over artists must be out of the building by 6:30 PM.

It is strongly recommended that artists provide their own lighting if required. Artists will not be permitted to move or refocus lighting within the event space.

DISPLAY REQUIREMENTS

Please ensure there are no sharp edges on grid walls, stands and tables. All boxes, equipment, stands, dollies, product, etc. are to be clean and free from debris before entering the MacKenzie Art Gallery. Artists must contact Holiday Bazaart’s Organizer if their artwork contains organic materials such as plants, dirt, fur, skin, wool, hair, quills, feathers, food, wood, found objects or materials that have been stored in garages or outdoors. These materials can carry insects which could potentially cause damage not only to the art works within the exhibition spaces, but spread to other objects throughout the MacKenzie Art Gallery. The MacKenzie’s conservator will be happy to discuss required procedures around these materials with you.

*New wool and commercial feathers are less likely to carry insects, but please contact the Holiday Bazaart Organizer for any of the above materials. Failure to do may result in forfeiture of your Holiday Bazaart space without refund.*

Conservator Contact: Brenda Smith (306)-584-4250 ext. 4287
