A 6 ft. table and 2 chairs are available upon request. Artisans 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.
It is strongly recommended that artisans provide their own lighting if required. Artisans will not be permitted to move or refocus lighting within the event space.
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. Artisans 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 conservator for any of the above materials. Failure to do may result in forfeiture of your Holiday Bazaart space without refund.*
