Apply to be an Artist With Us
So you want to join our tour eh? That's great!
The Artist on our tour are divided into two groups; Home Owners and Guest.
Here are a few things you should know first.
All items must be handmade.
Items must be unique and not duplicate existing artists on the tour.
We do jury all items to make sure 1. and 2. are enforced.
The jury committee consists of all the "Home Owners" on the tour.
A minimum of four (4) digital pictures must be submitted for use in our marketing materials. Failure to submit photos may result in you not being found on our website or social media.
Interested in being Home Owner?
This tour is run by the Home Owners. That is how our registration fees are kept so low. You will be expected to attend committee meetings throughout the entire year. This also means taking on jobs to benefit the tour (i.e. treasurer, marketing/advertising, helping with signs, social media, secretary, communications etc.). We all do our best to ensure each year is a success.
Home Owners are expected to communicate any information at monthly meetings to all Guest Artists that may be in their home.
As a Home Owner, you should also be able to take on Guest Artists in your home. Please indicate on your application how many Guests you can accommodate. While this isn't mandatory, it is recommended as it will make your stop on the tour more popular.
Interested in being Guest?
Guests are always welcome! Once you and your products have been juried in by the Home Owner committee, you will be assigned a home to set up in. You will be responsible for coordinating with the Home Owner.
As a Guest, you should remember that this is a home tour and space could be limited. We don't have the ability of offering you an official booth size. Please be considerate of the space you are given by the Home Owner you are assigned too.
Some years have enough Guest Artists and not enough Home Owners. This means we rent space at Midhurst United Church for guests to display.
Guests are placed in homes on the tour by the Home Owner Committee. The committee reserves the right to decide where Guests are placed. We will do our best to accommodate requests, but will make no guarantees.
