Call for Artists

Are you an Illustrator, Graphic Designer or Painter? We're looking for artists who would be interested in designing our Indie Market posters for July, October, November and December. This would be a trade only venture. What we need is a 300dpi, high resolution, pdf image that's fun, funky, quirky and reflects/represents the life of the Indie Market. The finished image and text will fit on a poster that's 12" x 18" (landscape or portrait) and a card that's 4.25" x 5.5". If you prefer to do art work only, we will gladly put the text in ourselves. What you'll get in return for your artwork is a free 10' x 10' booth at the Indie Market for the month you design the poster AND free advertising.

What do we mean by free advertising? Well... Of course, your name will be on the poster to let everyone know who created it. Every poster printed will be hung up and every card printed will be passed out all over Greensboro and the surrounding areas. A jpeg image will also be sent out to all of our vendors (30+), who in turn will place it on websites, Facebook, blogs and send it out in emails in order to advertise for that month's Market. There's no telling who will see your work and what kind of business it will bring you (hopefully lots). =)

We're all about supporting local artists and helping to get your work out to the public. If you'd like to take us up on our offer to design a poster, please contact Mandy and I at FirstFridayMarkets@gmail.com.

Thank You/Call To Vendors

The May Market came and went just as fast as the winds blew this past week. Those of you that were at the Shindig or the Kernersville Spring Folly know just what I'm talking about. =) Fortunately, the winds spared us and gave us a gorgeous day and night to work with. It turned out to be a wonderful Market, full of many talented artists and an awesome crowd to support us. Thank you so much to each and every one of the vendors, musicians and fans that came out! We truly do appreciate your support!

Hopefully we'll have some pictures to post for you in the next few days. If anyone else was out taking pictures, please feel free to send them to us at FirstFridayMarkets@gmail.com and we'll post them as well.

We're now gearing up for the June Market and are looking for vendors to fill our lot. If you're interest in participating, please click on the Vendor Application tab above, fill out and submit the form, then submit your payment via Paypal. If you have any questions or problems, please contact us by email.

Thank you again for helping us keep the Indie Markets going!!!
