Call For Artists!

Second Sunday Stroll...Waynesville, Ohio Press Release

Second Sunday Stroll Committee Announces
Call for artists Waynesville, Ohio Wednesday, April 1, 2009 - Starting Sunday, May 10th, and running through September 13th,
Waynesville Merchants Association will again host a monthly art event known as Second Sunday Stroll. Local visual and performing artists including painters, sculptors, woodcarvers, photographers, musicians, dancers, singers and magicians are invited to participate. Individuals will be set up along the length of the Main Street historical district and on one block of High Street. All visual arts must be original and made by the artists themselves.
The artists must send samples of their art by regular mail or
electronically to the Stroll Committee for approval. Visual artists will be
permitted to sell their work as well as demonstrate their talents. Sign
up for one Stroll or plan to attend all the monthly Sunday events. The
Stroll Committee will have the final approval of all artists and art.

Artists will be required to pay a promotional fee of $15 per month
which will be used for advertising to promote the art event. There will be
a discounted Summer Pass available for $50 if paid by May 10th. This
pass will register the artist for the whole summer at a savings of $25.

Performing artists may include soloists or small groups who sing,
dance, play musical instruments, or present mini dramas. All performing
artists will be working for tips and CD sales will be permitted as well.
Again, artists must send samples of their work by regular mail or
electronically to the Stroll Committee for approval. Performing artists
are not required to pay any promotional fees.

2009 is our third year to host this event and we are welcoming
supporting guilds and galleries to the event again this year. Any artist
guild, cooperative or gallery who would like to offer support to this art
event would be greatly appreciated. For details about how your guild or
gallery can become recognized for any of the dates in 2009, please

to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural
enrichment for all Ohioans. Other sponsors include the Canada Goose Gallery
featuring the works of P. Buckley Moss, the Waynesville Area Chamber of
Commerce and several other Waynesville merchants.
