@ the gate escape (375 Harvard street, Leominster, Ma)
-Cleanup 11pm-12am OR following morning 9-11am
-Booths are approximately 8×8 ‘ you can bring a table and display work however you please as long as it doesn’t go outside of your booth space! (I will have art grids for visual artists, I recommend either framing and hanging with S hooks and or Velcro DIY, if you need framing and hanging advice, dm me.) Non-visual(pottery, jewelry, etc) will have a space against a wall. We cannot put holes in the walls so plan to decorate tables and bring shelves and set-up however you please.
-Liquor and food details are not yet finalized but I will let you know ASAP.
-Incredible lighting provided throughout venue.
-Please let me know what you need for electrical. Lights, digital displays, etc. outlets are limited so the more battery operated things, the better!
-Each artist can have 1 person there for free entry to help set up and load supplies, just let me know their name when you figure it out!
-Each artist is responsible for selling at least 5 tickets @ $15 each in order to participate in the showcase. let me know if you have any concerns about this!
-If you reach 20 personal ticket sales you will receive 20% of those total sales!
-if you want to check out the venue anytime between now and the show let me know and we can plan a time!
-you will be able to set up for the show between 12pm-4pm before the show begins. You must be set up and in the building by 4pm.
-between 4:30-6 I would love to have all artists gather and browse each other’s work and toast to the badass artists we’ve all grown to be before the show begins.
-I’ll have an ‘otherworld’ sign over the doorway so everyone is aware of the entrance.
-I will have security/police detail there keeping an eye on things but you are in charge of your space and I am not responsible for anything that happens to your belongings.
-artist advice: have business cards made, have your social media advertised, host a possible giveaway during the evening by having people write their names and numbers down and picking a winner and making sure they follow you to be eligible, collect an email list, create a sign with your artist name so people can find you! Have Venmo, square, cash setup so you can successfully make sales!
-if you want to create live during the showcase dm me so we can plan accordingly
-every week I will be showcasing work from all of you on our event page on IG (@otherworldartshowcase) let me know if you have any specific requests.
-10% of ALL proceeds will be donated to ‘Michael’s run’ in support of mental health awareness
Tickets will be on sale starting January 10th (When letting friends and family know, be sure to have them include your name in the notes section at checkout so I know who is coming to see who. Tickets can be sold at the door but you will not get credit for those.-please let me know if you have any questions! You can ask in our group if you think everyone would benefit but if it is personal I ask that you dm me separately!
