NMPCA Booth at Silver City Clay Festival
Presented by STONEWARE ARTIFACTS and sponsored by NMPCA
As a member of the NMPCA, you are invited to show one or two clay pieces at the Silver City Clay Festival, August 1 and 2, 2015. This is an opportunity for other people in the state to see what our organization is all about and to get to examine and buy some of the finer work exemplifying our membership. This is the fourth year of the Silver City Clay Festival, and visitors are able to find a wonderful variety of presenters, shows, and different approaches to clay art. Our goal is to make new friends for the NMPCA.
In the NMPCA booth, we will have member’s work for sale. Sales will be handled through Stoneware Artifacts, Barbara Campbell’s studio. There will be a 20% commission to help offset the costs of running the show. A nominal $10 per entry fee will offset the costs of the booth space. Barbara will run sales through her business and take care of paying sales tax. We will have a banner advertising the NMPCA and literature, book marks and information on our activities available as well as members on hand who can talk to people about our organization.
