Tallahassee Clay Arts Studio Tour 2017
Call to Artists
Saturday November 18th 10 am – 4 pm
Commitment Deadline September 30th
Tallahassee Clay Arts is hosting a ceramic studio tour Saturday November 18th 2017. This group show is a collection of individual home studio shows focused on selling handmade ceramic items for the holiday season. Participants can collaborate with other artists but must feature ceramic art at the location to be included on the tour map. Groups of artists must designate a single Host to coordinate with Tallahassee Clay Arts.
The Host is the primary contact with Tallahassee Clay Arts and is the person that organizes their home studio event. All ceramic artists at the location must be current Tallahassee Clay Arts members as of September 30th. Artists that are not ceramicists are not obligated to join Tallahassee Clay Arts. Annual Membership is $35 a year.
By September 30th, the Hosts must provide a description of the studio/location and the type of experience people can expect. Included in this submitted information is a complete list of all artists and their contact information (full name, phone number, web site, and email), a brief description of their work, three photographs of the work that is representative of what will be for sale, and photographs of artists. Images of last year’s event are also encouraged.
Each artist is expected to advertise their own show to family and friends through social media and distribute postcards and other print media to their own mailing lists (postcards will be provided – but not postage). All event information and tour maps that TCA provides should be forwarded or shared.
Each artist is expected to have signage (provided by TCA) clearly directing people to your location the evening before the event to help people find you.
Each location should be open to the public and presentable from 10 am to 4 pm on November 18th.
This event will proceed rain or shine. The event will be cancelled if there is a severe weather threat.
If you don’t want to use your home or studio as a location, but want to participate, Sue can group you with other artists hosting their own shows.

Optional but helpful:
We would like to build on last year’s website and print media – so having a good selection of photographs is very helpful. http://www.tallyclayarts.com/studiotour2016
