CALL TO ARTISTS: Art on Main in Bristol seeks exhibitors

Art on Main in Bristol, a welcoming, artist-friendly, non-profit cooperative Gallery seeks submissions for new exhibitors for the 2012-2013 season. Our spring 2012 Jury session is Saturday April 21, 10am-2pm. The application, as well as the consignment contract and fee information, is available for download at

All media are welcome, though we are particularly looking for sterling jewelry, metalwork, book arts, and home crafts (rugs, lamps, etc.) to add to our varied collection. Unfortunately, we do not have space to accept any new two-dimensional work at this time. We look forward to the opportunity to see your creative work and hope that it can find a place here with us.

Bristol is a thriving community with dedicated local shoppers, as well as visitors from around Addison County and beyond. We enjoy a busy tourist season from May through October, and are sustained by our loyal locals at the holidays and throughout the winter. Artist members who choose the working option help us staff the Gallery year-round by working one four-hour shift each month greeting, chatting with, and taking care of our customers.

Please RSVP ahead of the jury date, so that we can plan for our session. You are welcome to drop off or mail your application and work anytime in the 2 weeks leading up to a jury date. Winter Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10am-6pm. You may also both drop off and pick up your work on the day of the jury if you will be traveling from a distance; in this instance, it is helpful if you can send the paperwork ahead of time. Work is available to be picked up anytime after the jury is finished meeting.

If you have any questions, contact the Gallery Manager, Carolyn Ashby, at or 802-453-4032. You can learn more about Art on Main at our website or by visiting us on Facebook,
