Call for Art: Holiday Ornament Showcase

On view: November 4 – December 31, 2022

Shop Maine Craft is currently accepting submissions for an upcoming holiday showcase of ornaments handmade by members of the Maine Crafts Association. 

Dear MCA Members: Show Us Your Ornaments! 

We are seeking ornaments to fill both galleries: Maine Craft Portland and Center for Maine Craft, for the holiday season. 

To participate: Please email gallery managers, Whitney Gill and Maria Wolff, with a short description of proposed items, and any specific display needs you may have. If you have not yet been approved for the galleries through our jury process, please send your submissions no later than October 15, 2022.  Juried members may make submissions anytime prior to the delivery deadline. 

Timeline

  • Delivery Deadline: Monday, October 25, 2022
  • Online Showcase Opens: Friday, November 4, 2022
  • Showcase ends: December 31, 2022 (pick up by Jan 15, 2023)

It will be extremely helpful for vendors to provide us with inventory that matches one of these two descriptions: 

Option 1: A small collection (a dozen or less) of one of a kind objects that are easily itemized and individually recognizable

Option 2: A collection of identical duplicates in bulk quantities (ex: Qty of 24 Chickadee ornaments @ $20 each, Qty of 24 Bear Ornaments @ $30 each, etc).

This helps us make a large and increasingly complex inventory system more streamlined between multiple sales platforms. If there are too many variations for a particular product, we will display them in-store but may not be able to list them in our webshop.
