Fine Arts Society of Liberty Event
FAFSOLT (The fine Arts Society of Liberty, Texas) is hosting an arts event the evening of July 29, 2017 at St. Stephens Episcopal Churchin Liberty from 5-7pm. They are looking for artists to set up "booths" to display and sell their work. We will be having an Art League of Baytown booth at this event. But, so far, only a few people have signed up.
Everyone who volunteers to participate in this event gets to display their art for sale at the Art League of Baytown booth. And everyone who does so will work together to set up, work and tear down our display. Setup will start prior to 5pm. All sales will go through the ALB and collect sales tax, and the League will keep 15% of all sales. All work must be family-friendly.
Everyone who confirms their participation in the Art League of Baytown booth by July 1st will also be listed in the program for this event. Sign up soon at the front desk at the Art Center.
There is also another option. They are hoping to promote as many individual artists as possible, so it is ok if you would like to get your own booth. You will need to process your own sales, have change and possible be able to take credit cards, etc.See contact information below:
