Booth sales begin at 8am Sunday, Jan. 15th. You can read the Registration info right now. Login first and you can fill out your registration form as part of the process.
The Gathering of the Guilds attendance in 2022 exceeded the total for 2019, and the total sales for all the guilds exceeded totals from 2019 as well so we have high hopes for a spectacular show.
Get you work seen all over Portland and beyond: as soon as you sign up for your booth send no more than 4 images to firstname.lastname@example.org. This may get your images into the GOTG Organization’s massive new media campaign for the 2023 show that will cover ads in TV, radio, social media, and print media.
There are a few changes from last year. Here are the highlights:
• Booth fees for 5x10s and the Group Booth were raised only $25; 10x10s stayed the same. The commission structure has changed slightly (get your friends and family to volunteer: you can count their hours toward decreasing your commission rate).
• Members who can’t commit to being part of a booth can show/sell up to 3 pieces of work as part of the Individual Artist Spotlight area (some of you may remember this as “pedestal” display). There is a $100 fee and a 25% commission. You must fill out the application and pay the fee by April 10th. We can’t accommodate people dropping off work at the show with no warning.
• Group Booth applications need to be in by February 28 so that we can help you find an artist to split a booth with if there aren’t the necessary 10 Group Booth participants.
Mark your calendar so you don’t miss this chance to see and buy exciting new work by our members.
As always we’ll need lots of volunteers to make this event happen. Fill out the form so we know who you are.
If you have questions please contact our wonderful coordinator Lesley Kelly who is back for a second year.
