MAC Arts & Crafts Sales
Overview: Three times each year the Multnomah Arts Center Association’s board and volunteers put on an Arts & Crafts Sale that attracts buyers from around the city to purchase local handmade artwork that supports the artists and the arts education programs of MAC. Artists are reimbursed 65% of their total sales and MACA keeps the remaining amount to reinvest into MAC’s programs.
Who can participate: All MAC instructors, staff, and students involved in a MAC class within the past year are encouraged to participate. As space is limited we encourage early registration. MACA reserves the right to close sign-up prior to the published sign-up deadline.
How to sign up: Sign-up is done in person at the MAC front desk about one before the sale begins. Participating artists sign up for one or more shifts and sign an artist’s agreement that details the requirements of participation. Please see below for important dates related to each sale sign-up.
How to promote your participation: We encourage all artists to invite their friends, family, distribute sales postcards, and share information through your preferred methods of social media.
Who can attend sales: All sales are open to the public. Hours are described below.
