Holiday Artist Market

About Holiday Artist Market

The Holiday Artist Market is Emerge Gallery’s annual holiday sale featuring handmade fine arts and crafts. The Wooten Gallery is set up in a booth style with each booth featuring one artist or business. The sale will kick off with our members' preview night on Thursday, December 1 and continue through the First Friday ArtWalk on Friday, December 1. Both evenings draw an attendance of more than 250 shoppers each.

Holiday Sale Event

Artists must be set up and present on November 30 for the Jingle Art Jam from 5:15pm-7:45pm, and the First Friday ArtWalk on December 1 from 4:45pm-8:15pm.

Terms and Conditions

The market is open to all fine arts and crafts, and holds 6-7 booth spaces.

Booth setup is November 28, 29, and 30 from 10:00am to 8:00pm each day, with booths completely ready by 4:30pm on Thursday, November 30.

During the two day-period (see dates above) the artist retains 100% of sales. Anytime the artist is not at their booth or sales are run through Emerge’s POS, all sales are run on normal consignment (70% for artist, 30% for Emerge). Artists are responsible for monitoring their own sales on November 30 and December 1.

Any sales made through Emerge during Holiday Artist Market will be paid by January 15, 2024.

Booth spaces will only be available in the Wooten Gallery. Due to the size and shape of the gallery spaces, an exact dimension is not determined for a booth space. Artists will be given adequate space to fit their needs (not exceeding 50 sq. ft.)

Only one artist/business per booth. We do not allow the transfer of booths.

Electricity is available upon request.

Work will be insured during set up and event dates. Work and booths must be dismantled and removed at the conclusion of the event on Friday, December 1.

Booth set up materials are to be provided by the artist. Emerge does have tables for rent for an additional fee.

Application fee of $75 is required at time of application. In the case that an artist is not accepted, the fee will be refunded within 15 days after the deadline.
