Artist/Author Alley

Artist & Author Alley

An “Artist & Author Alley”, comprised of a number of 8′ x 30″ tables between the Art Show and Dealer’s Room areas, will be available for use by attending authors and artists on a per-shift basis.

Each table has two chairs, and may have a piece of pegboard for a sign or display of artwork.

Time slots are available for:

  • Thursday, August 20
  • Friday, August 21
  • Saturday, August 22

There will be two shifts of 3 ¾ hours each on Thursday and Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and from 2:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Due to multiple artists’ requests, there will be a single artist alley shift on Saturday from 10:00 a.m.`to 1:45 p.m.


Artists with at least one panel or one half-table in the Art Show may get one table for one shift in the Artist & Author Alley at no charge.

Authors and other artists will be charged $25 per shift, per table.

Authors wishing to share a table may each rent a half-table for $15 per shift.

These slots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis for the first time slot. Each artist may request one or two time slots.

Tables for all the artist’s first time slots will be given first; any time slots left over will be given second, again on a first-come, first-served basis.

To sign up for a slot, contact the Artist Alley.
