HOLIDAY GIFT GALLERY 2018
The Firehouse’s annual holiday boutique, Holiday Gift Gallery, highlights regional artists by showcasing their work for sale to the public in a festive extension of the year-round gift shop. Over one thousand Norman shoppers visited the FAC during last year’s Holiday Gift Gallery, browsing the selection of original and unique artwork in a variety of mediums and learning more about the community of artists represented at the FAC.
The FAC is seeking seasonal items of varying price points to captivate customers who are looking for both gifts and décor. Especially popular are affordable, holiday-themed ornaments. Artwork submitted must be original, handmade, and created by the artist in the last 3 years. The 2018 Holiday Gift Gallery is open to regional artists working in a wide range of mediums; work accepted includes ceramics, photography, paintings, original prints, drawings, wood, metal, jewelry, blown glass, slumped glassed, stained glass, mixed media pieces, seasonal décor, and some accessories. Items not accepted include clothing (except for hand-woven items), university themed items, food, and toiletry items.
New artists must submit this completed digital application by Monday, October 15 at midnight. This short application requires the inclusion of sample images of artwork. The FAC Gallery Committee will review all applications and sample images submitted to determine the acceptance of the artist to Holiday Gift Gallery. Artists will be informed of their acceptance status before drop-off begins on October 22. Incomplete applications or applications submitted without images will not be considered. No new artists will be considered without a completed digital application. Accepted artists will be assigned an artist number and then may proceed through the following artwork drop-off process.
Only artists accepted to the FAC's Gift Shop roster are invited to submit their works in person during the Holiday Gift Gallery artwork drop off (October 22 - 26, 2018). For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
