The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park is accepting new artisan/crafter applications from March 1-18 to be juried for its “Gallery in the Gap.” The gallery provides opportunities for artisans to display craft items, which will be available for purchase by visitors of the museum.
The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park supports and encourages high quality artisanship and supports these standards with new selections for the Gallery. Interested artisans must meet established criteria for their items to be considered for the “Gallery in the Gap.” Each item submitted is presented to a jury panel, and selected items are displayed and sold by consignment.
Priority is given to the Coalfield Region represented by the museum exhibits. This area includes Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Wise and Tazewell Counties and the City of Norton, Virginia.
The park accepts artisan applications with items submitted to be juried from March 1 to March 18, during regular museum hours. Contact Pam Smith at 276-523-1322 or email@example.com for more information and/or to receive the artisan application and guidelines.
