YORK River Art Market 2021 is issuing a call-out to artists for this summer’s riverside event on Dame Judi Dench Walk, Lendal Bridge, York.
This award-winning art and design market had to cancel its fifth summer of weekend stalls last year when council officials advised that the space besides the River Ouse was unsuitable for social distancing.
“See you all in 2021 for the best year yet,” said the official notice at the time. True to that promise, York River Art Market has announced plans to return for markets on June 26; July 3, 24, 25 and 31, and August 1, 7, 14, 21 and 28.
Hence the call-out for applications to participate in a market that hosts 30-plus artists at each event, selling original art and hand-crafted goods.
Those applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
* Three quality images of your work;
* A few sentences about your work;
* Links to digital platforms where you show or sell your work (if you have any; if not, do not worry);
* Preferred choice of dates, listed in the YRAM biography on its Facebook page.
“I look forward to your submissions,” says organiser Charlotte Dawson, who oversaw York River Art Market going online for #yramathome virtual winter art markets last November and December.
Let us hope that Government Covid strictures will have been eased sufficiently for this summer’s markets to be given the green light.
