MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 5 2017) — The Memphis College of Art 67th Holiday Bazaar and Fundraiser (Juried Show) is now accepting submissions. The Early Submission Deadline is Wednesday, August 30. The Final Submission Deadline is Monday, October 2. To apply online, click here.
There will be a ticketed Opening Celebration on Friday, November 17, 6-10pm, and the bazaar will be open to the public on Saturday, November 18, 9am – 6pm. The bazaar is located in Rust Hall, Memphis College of Art 1930 Poplar Ave, Memphis, TN 38104.
This much anticipated, juried event has drawn thousands of people to the MCA campus since its inception in 1949. The show was revamped and improved in 2016. This is the second edition of that newly reimagined Holiday Bazaar. In addition to supporting local artists in the MCA community, 30% of proceeds from each sale will benefit the college’s scholarship fund, which disburses nearly $5 million in scholarships each year.
The Holiday Bazaar is an excellent opportunity for both emerging and established artists to showcase their work in a high-traffic, gallery event. Work from students, faculty, alumni, and trending local artists will be for sale. As an open call, any local artist may submit, and there is no cost to apply.
