Time to Apply: Cherrywood Art Fair

The most wonderful time of year will be here before we know it. That's the handmade holiday shopping season in case you were wondering. Chula League's Cherrywood Art Fair has become a classically Austin event that happens the second weekend of December. If you offer giftable fine art and handmade items, this show would be a great opportunity to get in front of lots of buyers. Plus, there's music, food, family entertainment and more. The Artist Application is now live, and ready to hear from you. Below I've outlined more details about what to expect. Good luck!
