CHEROKEE PRINT LEAGUE - HOLIDAY SALE 4 October 18 2011
Following on the heels of the SGC International Conference, an event that brought international attention earlier this year to Cherokee Street, galleries and businesses in the district are teaming up once again to showcase artists working in print media for the annual Cherokee Print League Holiday Sale: Saturday, December 3rd from 10am-7pm. This indoor print-themed arts and crafts sale will take place up and down the street, with businesses hosting over 50 artists from all over the St. Louis area (as well as the greater midwest) whose work is print-related (printmaking, letterpress, screen printing, printed fabrics, anything printed goes!)
WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU PARTICIPATE!
Last year, hundreds of people turned up for the event to mosey along the historic shopping district and purchase the printed wares of local artists. As the first street-wide art event following SGC, this year's show will be bigger than ever! Organized as a sale rather than an art show, the event promises a huge turnout and will be a great way to make some cash before the holiday season. Hosting businesses will be advertising the event extensively: 100% of participation fees go toward advertising.
All artists will be guaranteed a comfortable, easily accessible location to showcase their artwork. You will be provided with a table in an indoor, heated space, and your name and location will be included on a printed map of the event that will be available the day of the sale.
