The Annex Marketplace at 100 American Craftsmen is a great place for new, emerging, and student artisans to get exposure for their work–even if you have a small inventory. Student artisans must be at least 15 and all artisans must be able to collect NYS sales tax. Popular items are upcycled, repurposed, recycled, and “green” art, but traditional work in jewelry, clay, leather, metal, mixed media, fiber, paper, wood, and glass are welcome. Groups of artisans can share a booth. Spaces are 10’ x 10’ and artisans must provide all display equipment, tables and chairs. Artisans must be able to man their exhibit for the 2 1/2 days of the show. If accepted, an exhibit fee of $100 will payable by May 7. Annex Marketplace artisans receive recognition on the 100 American Craftsmen website and the show program. If you’re a new artisan, this is a great way to get your foot in the door for 100 American Craftsmen which is highly competitive–many artisans who started in the Annex have now moved up to the main floor. To inquire about space availability, email alyssamays@kenancenter.org.
