Holiday Celebration of the Arts
The Anderson Center, Red Wing, MN
December 4 - 12, 2020
The Anderson Center's Annual Holiday Celebration of the Arts presents art works of all kinds at the Historic Tower View campus in Red Wing, Minnesota. For 2020, all works will be accepted on a consignment basis, and the event will extend over two weekends with a timed entry admission system allowing a limited number of people allowed in at any given time.
The Center seeks handmade works of art that are unique or limited edition. All media are welcome, with original work made by the applicant in the areas of painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, metalwork, glass, fiber, paper, jewelry, wood, textiles, mixed media and more. The Center hopes to feature a range of price-points and both functional and non-functional works. Note: Functional ceramics works have already been chosen through a separate call-for-entries.
Open to all professional or emerging artists 18 years of age or older. All works must be the final product of an original design and must be available for sale. No food or commercial items are permitted.
Monday, October 26, 2020 at noon: Priority Deadline for submissions
Additional applications will be accepted and approved on a rolling basis through November 6, 2020.
Acceptance Notifications for priority applications will be e-mailed by Monday, November 2. Final notification to all applicants will be e-mailed on or before Monday, November 29.
November 1 - 21: work accepted for delivery during Anderson Center open hours, Wednesday - Saturday, 11am - 4pm (open until 7pm on Thursdays).
For 2020, all works will be accepted on a consignment basis. The Anderson Center takes a commission of 30% (20% for members), and will handle the collection and payment of all sales tax.
