This is the final week for Marion County artists and makers to submit their works for the Marion Cultural Alliance’s spring consignment.
MCA is seeking a variety of unique and hand-crafted items to add to its seasonally curated gallery shop at the Brick City Center for the Arts (23 SW Broadway Street in Ocala), which will run from the last week of January through April.
In order to showcase Marion County’s creativity, MCA is looking for fine arts and artisan crafts that include, but are not limited to, the following: creative original paintings, drawings, photographs, jewelry, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, artist-made note cards, reproduction prints, textiles, handmade wearables, home decor items, holiday items, uniquely Ocala items, and more.
To be eligible, all participating artists and makers must be active MCA artist members, and the deadline to submit up to 10 items for consideration is at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, January 15.
According to MCA, items will then be carefully selected by its Gallery Committee, which will evaluate each submission with an eye for quality, representation of the area, broad retail appeal, and price.
All of the selected items will be available for purchase at the gallery shop, with 70% of the proceeds going to the artist and the remaining 30% supporting MCA’s mission of championing the arts in Marion County.
