Call for ART

December 3–6, 2009
The Merchandise Mart, Chicago

A Celebration of Fine Art and Fine Craft
Woman Made Gallery has the unique opportunity to participate in the One of a Kind Show with three booths generously sponsored by Pamella Capitanini and The Italian Village Restaurants. Three emerging women artists and artisans selected by WMG’s One of a Kind Committee will be able to show and sell their works at the emerging artist section on the floor dedicated to talented up-and-coming artists and designers. There are no entry fees, and selected artists do not pay any fees to participate in this event. There is a 50% commission to WMG in the event of sales.

Call for Arts and Crafts
Woman Made Gallery is looking for quality entries of fine art and crafts by emerging women artists for sale at one of the best fine art and fine craft events in North America. Selected artists will be provided with 50 square feet at the event. The One of a Kind Show will provide signage, lighting, carpet and a designated area with hard walls. Artists will supply their artful works and display units.

A Show with Strength
It is the impeccable quality, unique character, and wide variety of work shown that makes the One of a Kind Show like no other. It is the presence of the artists on site, representing their work as only they can, that brings the One of a Kind Show to an unparalleled level of quality and individuality. It is the incredibly high volume of attendees and on-site purchasing that truly demonstrates the success of the One of a Kind Show.
