Artist Meet and Greet Sale

This is the opportunity for artists to be present to discuss their work and offer it for sale without having to pay any commission to the festival.

If you are looking for a unique piece of art come along and have a chat to some of our artists.

On 29 October 2021 we are once again giving exhibitors the opportunity to offer their artwork for sale on the day, and pay no commission on the sale.
We hope that this method of ‘Commission Free Sale’ will assist artists financially and foster the interest of the viewing public in the work of particular artists. It is an opportunity for all artists to establish a market for their future works.

‘Meet and greet the artists Sale’ 4 pm – 6 pm, 29 October 2021 at Burnett Heads Community Hall. Any artist wishing to offer their artwork for sale must clearly mark their work with price on entry form so it can be added to the tag.
All artists wishing to sell their work need to conduct their own sale directly with interested buyers.

NOTE: All artworks are to remain hung in the exhibition hall until 8 pm.
Delivery of all artworks sold will be the responsibility of the Artist.

Judging and Awards
