The annual Spring Craft Sale is approaching, and the ASI Craft Center has sent out a “Call for Art!”
The center is seeking vendors to sell their handcrafted goods at the event, held from May 10 – 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the University Union Plaza. Applications are available at the craft center, located on the first floor of the University Union, and are due at the front desk by 3 p.m. Friday, April 28.
Craft sale coordinator Emily Palmer said the mission of the sale is to promote awareness of the craft center and provide a venue for talented student artists to sell their work.
Only hand-constructed wares are to be sold, and the registered exhibitor must be the one who made them.
“The ‘Call for Art!’ welcomes artwork in any medium,” said Megan Campbell, an ASI employee at the craft center. “We’re looking for pretty much anything that will sell.”
Creativity is also encouraged among applicants.
“Last year we had all the regular stuff, lots of pottery,” she said, but the highlights are often those vendors who come with unique items ” a booth featuring dog toys was popular during one sale.
The event is open to the public and provides an opportunity for the community to see and support students and local artists.
A $10 application fee reserves a space at the sale, and includes a T-shirt. Student vendors will also be subject to paying a 15 percent commission, the proceeds of which directly support the craft center.
