For Artists

There are a few ways we support artists at Holyoke Art.

 

First is through exhibiting work at the Artery, a marketplace where we bring art to the heart of Holyoke. There are no "booth" or submission fees, we simply have a 70/30 split on any sales.

The second is through hosting workshops in one of our locations, either at the Artery, The Print Shop, or one of the Holyoke spaces we're activating for Summer '24. 

To join the Artery or hold a workshop, fill out the form below.

Artery Vendor Registration

As part of transformative development initiatives and rapid recovery tourism efforts to attract more foot traffic to downtown, the City of Holyoke in collaboration with the Greater Holyoke Chamber, and Holyoke Art operate the Artery, a store at 289 High Street that features original art and items crafted by local and regional makers.



GUIDELINES:


Original artwork, handcrafted and/or up-cycled/refinished items, and locally produced artisan goods ONLY. Corporate, mass produced items, second hand items or collectables will NOT be accepted. We are looking for original artwork and up-cycled/refinished/remade items ranging from $5-$500, as well as one of a kind pieces like paintings, sculpture, furniture and so on that may command higher prices.



COMMISSION: There are no up front fees. Holyoke Art, the Artery's fiscal agent, will receive 30% commission on all vendor’s sales, and is responsible for disbursing net proceed payments to vendors within 2-3 weeks after the end of each month.  


Please complete this form to apply. Thank you for your interest.


Once registered, you will receive more details as they become available.

  1. Drop off / Pick up: Accepted vendors will be contacted to schedule drop times with marketplace organizers. The marketplace’s managers and staff will solely be responsible for arranging items in the store. Certain artists, and/or disciplines or themes will be featured on a rotating basis. Vendors cannot remove their work during marketplace hours. Vendors must make arrangements with Organizers to collect and remove all of their unsold products (and materials associated with the display thereof) from the marketplace once the term has ended. Any unsold works or materials left behind after the designated pickup time cutoff shall be considered abandoned, and will become the property of the Organizers. The Organizers, in their sole discretion, may dispose of said property in any manner it deems proper, including, without limitation, by sale, disposal, or destruction.     

  2. Point of Sale: Holyoke Art will collect all monies paid for the purchase of work at the Store at the time of the sale at a single point-of-sale/register.

Checks will be made payable to Holyoke Art.     

  3. Fees/commission: Holyoke Art will deduct a 30% commission fee from the total monies collected for the sale of a Vendor's work at the store. This commission covers sales tax, credit card fees, Point of Sale fees,  Artery staff and operational expenses, and marketing.

  4. Payment: Holyoke Art will issue a check to the Vendor for the remaining net proceeds (total monies collected minus 30%), on a quarterly basis.
