elcome to the registration page for The Dorset Art Fair.  Its a very accessible event, all you need to do is:-


  1. Register and pay for a pitch today.
  2. Turn up on Sunday Sept 15th  from 8.30am,
  3. For the artbooters, Park at your pitch, just like a carboot, no traipsing back & forth
  4. For indoor pitches, you can park close to unload and park in nearby carparks.  All free on a Sunday.
  5. Finally set up a creative stall ready for the public to arrive at 10am, to talk to you, see your portfolio & amazing artwork, watch you create and of course buy.




W

There are up to 30 spaces, imagine how wonderful for the public to turn up to one spot and have the opportunity to see & talk to so many artists.  We have tried to keep the costs down, but free expression is a non profit and relies purely on fundraising.


Remember you are not creating a fully stocked shop for the day.  Of course have things to sell, people want to be able to buy, but also use this event to promote what you do, and who you are to the public, giving the often rare opportunity for them to meet the artist.


The stall Ideas

Sunday 15th Sept

10am-4pm

In previous events artist have got bookings for courses they run, asked to exhibit in galleries, sold old stock to make space for the new.  There is the choice of both inside and outside pitches
