Call for Green Vendors
a message from local Etsy Seller and Visual Arts Center employee Jackie:
The Visual Arts Center of Richmond is looking for indie craft vendors who focus on recycling, repurposing, upcycling and reuse of materials…If your work incorporates any of these words, WE WANT YOU to apply to Art:24, a decidedly un-stuffy 24-hour celebration of hands, community, crafts, food and fun.
We expect a large crowd for this event, and we will be widely advertising around Richmond. Events of the day include:
• Workshops, talk, book signing and trunk show with international design star and sustainable fashion guru Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin.
• A lively casual party with storytelling and live music, highlighting collaborative wearable art and beautiful hand-made pieces and featuring a silent auction and cash bar. Tickets will be $24 for adults and $12 for students.
• An assortment of light-hearted, hands-on activities for all ages, including opportunities to make and decorate clothing and embellishments.
• Fun and informal food, from a traditional Southern breakfast to a cake-and-champagne finale.
