CLAS Spring Fest

 

Art Fair Information

Thank you for registering for the upcoming Spring Fest Art Fair sponsored by Eastern Illinois University’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Doudna Fine Arts Center. The purpose of the Art Fair is to assist EIU's Art & Design Department in raising funds for Art & Design Scholarships, as well as promoting the art life of those who reside in east central Illinois.

Space Availability

The Art Fair will include 30 booth spots and a consignment area.

Please know that the Art Fair will take place indoors on a concrete floor.

Eligibility

All artwork must be original and made by the participating artist.  The EIU Art & Design Department reserves the right to refuse any entries which do not conform to the specifications, or which are deemed unsuitable or inappropriate for the Art Fair.

Two Ways to Participate

Option #1- Booth Space Rental

The artist may sell their own original artwork themselves by renting space during the Art Fair. Artists must be present throughout the Art Fair.

  • Full Size Booth (6' x 11'): $100
  • Half Size Booth (odd sizes available): $75

Booth fee is due once an artist has been accepted.

Option #2 - Art Fair Consignment Table

The sale of the artwork will be supervised by the Art & Design Department with the assistance of volunteers. Artists’ participating in the Table Sale are not required to be present during the sale. On the date for picking up unsold work, each artist will receive a summary sheet indicating the results of their sales. A check for all works sold will be sent to the artist within four weeks of the sale.  No Booth Fee is required, but a commission of 40% (20% for students) will be retained from the sale price of each work sold. All proceeds support Art & Design Scholarships.

Please know: All artists will be equally represented in the sale. If you have too many works to be displayed, EIU representatives will exhibit the work, then replenish as works are sold. Each work of art will be labeled by the Art & Design Department with the artist’s ID# and sale price. 

Liability and Security

Overnight security on Friday, April 24 and Saturday, April 25 will be provided, however, the Board of Trustees for Eastern Illinois University for CLAS Spring Fest assumes no responsibility for loss or damage of any kind at any time to artists’ work and other personal property including damage due to weather conditions.
