Shemer Arts Festival: November 4 and 5
Formerly Sunday @ Shemer, this new, two-day event will increase the visibility of this Arizona (state-wide) arts festival and will allow the Shemer Art Center to increase the visibility of our mission to support and showcase Arizona artists!
Mesa Art Fair
Think “cool” — like December and the Mesa Art Fair! On December 9 and 10, 2017 we will again have a double booth display to sell all of the wonderful things our members make. For the last two years we have sold 184 and 188 items, respectively.
So, start thinking what you want to have in the booth to sell. As in previous years, each member who wants to sell items, pays $20 to help defray the booth fees and 15% of sales goes to Telarana; you keep 85%. This event is sponsored by Telarana as a service to our members and to educate the public. More details will come out in the fall, but we will be following the same procedures as previous years.
If you haven’t participated before and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Cindy Reynolds.
