California Quail Ornament | Kathy Webster

Call for Art: The Center is seeking holiday-themed work to be featured in our annual Holiday Ornament Showcase.

The 2020 webshop launch proved to be a successful platform to supplement this annual in-store event at the Center for Maine Craft. We look forward to filling the Center with your beautiful items for the holidays, and sharing your work with our new and growing audience on the world wide web! In addition to unique handmade ornaments and one of a kind show stopping objects, we are stocking up on card sets and singles, gourmet foods, home decor, cozy apparel, kid’s games and books, and/or your best-selling gift items! 

To participate: All applicants must be current members of the Maine Crafts Association, either under the Professional or Retail membership level, and have completed our jury process in order to participate. Please email the Center inventory team (contacts below) with a short description of proposed items, and any specific display needs you may have. If you have never been juried, please refer to our Jury Page for application guidelines.
