Artist Application

Thank you for your interest in the fourth annual Humboldt Marble Weekend. We are hoping to attract artists and collectors from around the world to come and enjoy the beauty and hospitality that defines Humboldt County. We have rented a beautiful community building overlooking Humboldt Bay and within easy walking distance of many hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, dispensaries, and bars. 

 

Unfortunately, with our new more intimate location, we will have to limit the number of artists to 25-30 (depending on the possibility of shared tables). We will now be moving to a “Juried Show” format. All artists are encouraged to apply, for free, by the November 6th, 2023 deadline. After that, our team of jury members will pick the roster and notify artists who will then have 3 weeks to pay for their space. All artists not chosen for the initial group will be on “standby” to possibly fill vacancies as they open up. High quality pictures of your work and table display will have a strong impact on the judging, and we encourage all to put their best foot forward. **Please send photos of your work and table display to 2024HMW@gmail.com after filling out your application below.**

Table fees for the show are $350, which includes a 72"x30” table and two chairs. There will also be the option of sharing a table for $225 per artist.  Artists will need to provide their own tablecloths, display stands, and any additional lighting. There will be power available at every table, but extra power strips and extension cords are a good idea.  

Set-up for the show will be on Saturday, February 10th, from 8 am - 10 am. 

Break down will be on Sunday, February 11th, from 6pm - 8 pm.

Show hours are 10am - 5pm on Saturday and 10am - 5pm on Sunday. 

This is a marble-focused event, but other glass items may be displayed and sold. We are asking that no "functional" glass be displayed on your table, but you are welcome to keep a case to show folks "under the table", and you are obviously free to do as you please outside of the show facility. 

We are still working on the details, but have applied for a grant to cover the cost of a large marble hunt on Sunday. Rather than asking for artist donations, we are hoping to have a budget to cover buying marbles from visiting artists and making this a win-win situation for both the artists and the hunters. Ill provide more information as it becomes available.  

We are offering travel and logistics tips on this site under the “travel information” menu, but please feel free to contact us with any additional questions. Humboldt is an oddly difficult place to get to and has its own peculiar situations that can often be avoided with a little insider information. 

Out-of-state vendors will be responsible for filing for their own California Temporary Sellers permit. Please contact us if you have any questions. For more information, visit this site:  https://www.cdtfa.ca.gov/industry/temporary-sellers.htm

If your plans change, we will offer full refunds until January 9th, 2024. No refunds will be available after this date.
