DEADLINE Feb 15

The Deadline for Applying as as Artist for this Tour is FEBRUARY 15th!

CLICK HERE TO APPLY

Twenty-one artists attended the public meeting on January 24th.
The enthusiasm for THAT was palpable!

Feedback from the artists changed our plans:
There will be no limit on the price of artworks displayed at the
opening night exhibit at the Hunterdon Art Museum.
The size limit remains: no dimension greater than 30″.

We directed the artists’ attention to the website of the
Saugerties Art Tour
for a model of the pages THAT will create to highlight participating
artists and their work.

THAT is welcoming groups of artists
who want to show at one location!

(Several groups of artists are already planning to participate together).

There are TWO options:

OPTION #1: Each artist applies (for the same location),
and thus each artist will have a page on our web site.

OPTION #2: The group signs up to be a Destination (at a cost of $250),
thus saving the application/registration fees for each artist,
but each artist does not have a page on our website. To have a profile page on the site AND be a destination, the artists must each pay $35. Application plus $90. Upon acceptance.

ARTIST APPLICATIONS DUE FEBRUARY 15: APPLY

The deadline for Sponsors and Destinations
who want to appear on THAT’s printed map:
MARCH 1, 2017

Sponsors and groups of artists who sign up to be a Destination will appear on the printed custom-made THAT map, which will be widely distributed in April, but you must sign up by the deadline of March 1, 2017.

Sponsors and Destinations who sign up after March 1st will appear only our website.

WHAT A GREAT MEETING!

THAT team wants to thank all of you who came to meeting this past Tuesday Evening. It was incredibly informative for us and totally affirming! We have come to a few decisions we would like to share:

  1. RE: Hunterdon Museum of ART Exhibition: We will NOT impose a price limitation on the piece that the participating artist chooses to submit. The scale will be limited to 30″ wide for wall work. Display options for Sculpture and other items will be worked out individually.
  2.  We are planning to create separate pull down menus for multiple artists exhibiting at one location : i.e: Toshiko Takaezu STUDIO, Prallsville Mills, Sunflower Studio – or others – as well as individual pages for each artist.
  3. We are maintaining the TOTAL price for the tour at $125.  ($35. application fee + $90. due at acceptance)
  4. Destinations do NOT get artists pages. Destinations will have a place on the MAP – both Printed (if $$ paid by March 1st) and DIGITAL (no deadline) – and a link to their website through the destination marker.

\I’m sure there is more – but I gotta get back to that painting across the room!

THAT: We are a new organization, learning as we go, and there’s a lot to learn! We benefit from the input we’re getting from you.

3. A CURATED OPEN STUDIOS TOUR

Our aim in creating THAT was to establish an event that gave the artists in our county a chance to show off and sell their work directly to the public. We want THAT to be a place where artists who make their work and have demonstrated dedication to it can shine. We are curating the tour. We are curating the tour to ensure we have artists who fit that target group.

This year the curators are the four of us, the people who formed this event. Three of us are visual artists, one is a writer. We are sensitive to the demands of putting art at the center of our lives and want to honor those who do.

4. OTHER DESTINATIONS ON THE THAT MAP

As a result from input, we are adding an option to THAT, the DESTINATION option. If you want your restaurant, gallery or other place of business (but not an artist’s studio) to be a DESTINATION on the THAT Map, you can! For a donation of $250.00 (or above) you will be listed as a DESTINATION.

We are in the process of designing a printed map for the tour. Donate $250 or more and your DESTINATION will be on our printed and digital maps.
