Art Show in Kent

Main Street Kent is hosting the 4th annual Masterpieces on Main Art & Wine Festival Saturday, June 5th 2010.
The event will be from noon until 10 p.m. Local wineries will offer wine tasting on the Home Savings Plaza and on adjoining North Water Street. Artists will display their art surrounding the plaza and on North Water Street.
Last year's event drew a record crowd of wine and art lovers! We have secured space this year to double the size of the event. Six wineries have signed on and there is space for 78 artists. Increased media exposure throughout Northeastern Ohio will contribute to another successful event.
We are currently looking for artists who are interested in participating in this years event. Booth fees for a 10 x 10 booth space are $35 and $20 for students. After May 25th fees increase to $50 and $40 for students. There are no commissions for this event. Artists are responsible for their own tent and necessary display tables and backdrops. Water and electrical service is not available.
Since this years event is from noon-10 p.m. set up is Saturday from 9:00 to 11:30. Please have your booth ready for customers by 11:45 pm.
