“Last year we broke the mold and created an Art Market full
of performance art and lively collections featuring vendors and an eclectic
group of demonstrations throughout all of downtown,” said Scott.


“The music concerts bring so much energy to the Sounds &
Sights Festival; we want to compliment those sounds with a visual vibe that is
uniquely Chelsea,” said Scott. The Sounds & Sights Festival draws over
15,000 visitors annually and features live music concerts, local food and brew,
an outdoor sculpture exhibition and activities for the entire family.

Hoping to seize modern culture, Scott said the committee is
looking for the region’s top makers, collectors, performers and creative
boundary pushers.

“We are interested in putting on a crowd-drawing show, that
interacts with the audience, demonstrators and performance artists are highly
encouraged to apply,” said Scott. 

The Art Market is a juried event limited to 50 local and
regional arts forms of exceptional quality.  Artists willing to
demonstrate their processes are also highly sought. Booth fee is $100 for the
weekend. Application deadline is March 8, and selected participants are notified
by March 27, 2020.
