The Parker Artists Guild owns four tents and grids to fill them. If you are new and just starting out, you may rent space to show your work. Each space is 4' wide by 6' high. If all spaces are not filled, you will be contacted and offered an extra 4' x 6' space for the same price as you paid for your first space. DO NOT sign up for more than one space until you are invited to. As part of the conditions for exhibiting you must agree to donate:
* 2 hours to help pick up the tents and grids from the storage units and set up on Friday AND,
* 2 hours of staffing tents during the show on Saturday or Sunday AND,
* 2 hours to help tear down the tents and grids and return them to the storage units
