MACA Arts & Crafts Sale

Overview

Three times each year, the Multnomah Arts Center Association’s board and volunteers put on an Arts & Crafts Sale that attracts buyers from around the city to purchase local handmade artwork that supports the artists and the arts education programs of MAC. Artists are reimbursed 65% of their total sales and MACA keeps the remaining amount to reinvest into MAC’s programs.

How to sign up

Sign-up is done in person at the MAC front desk about one month before the sale begins. Participating artists sign up for one or more shifts and sign an artist’s agreement that details the requirements of participation. Please see below for important dates related to each sale sign-up.

Who can participate

All MAC Instructors, staff, and students involved in a MAC class within the past year are encouraged to participate. As space is limited, we encourage early registration. MACA reserves the right to close sign-up prior to the published sign-up deadline.

How to promote your participation

We encourage all artists to invite their friends, family, distribute sales postcards, and share information through your preferred methods of social media. All sales are open to the public. Hours are described below.
