12th Annual Spring Art Show




CALL TO ARTISTS: 12th Annual Spring Art Show 2020

The Visual Arts Guild of Mountain Home will be hosting their annual Spring Art Sale May 8 - 9, 2020 at the Mountain Home Public Library. This two-day show will be held Friday, May 8 from 9am -7pm and Saturday, May 9 from 9am - 4pm.

This is a call to all artists who are interested in selling their work to join in the fun. Sign-ups can be done through Charlotte Moody-Emerson at or by text at 208-724-8304. This years’ deadline for sign-ups for the Spring Art Sale is April 4th.

Rules for participating artists:

  • Visual Arts Guild members will pay a $10 Show Fee, non members will pay $22
  • All artists must pay a commission of 10% of your total sales, up to $1000.00 in total sales. There will be no percentage taken after that amount.
  • All artists agree to volunteer at least 2 hours of your time during the hours of the show.
  • All artwork must be priced $100 or less.
  • All work must be show ready. Framed Prints and Paintings must be wired.
  • 3-dimensional art will be displayed on tables/displays provided. If special accommodations are needed please contact Charlotte Moody-Emerson (see above), Cynthia Henstock at, or Patti Hamaishi at
  • All unframed flat art, i.e. prints, cards, etc. should be packaged in clear plastic sleeves to be placed in shared displays, i.e. display racks or card racks so that patrons will be able to safely look through them.
  • All work must be properly labeled with name of each piece, artists initials, and price. This information must match your artist inventory sheet which will be provided by the guild.
  • All available space will be shared by all artists as equally as possible.
  • We can add additional art, as space allows, from any and all artists who are participating. This means that as the artwork begins to sell we will be rearranging the remaining pieces for a more visually appealing display and if an artists has additional pieces that they’d like to sell those can be added during that time.
  • Each participating artist is responsible for delivery and pick up of their own work. All artists are required to work as a team to ensure fair representation for EVERYONE’s artwork. 
  • This is a family show. Artwork should reflect that and be suitable for all ages. The Guild maintains the right to refuse work that doesn’t reflect these values.
  • Set up will start at 4pm and will be completed by 7pm, when the library closes Thursday May 7th. Tear down will be at 4 pm on Saturday afternoon and must be completed by 5pm as that is when the library closes. For both set up and tear down things go more smoothly, and can be a lot more fun, if all participating artists can be there on time and work together.

This is a fun show that gives emerging artists a chance to try their hand at selling their art while receiving the assistance of some of the participating experienced artists. It’s also a great opportunity to get out to meet the people in town and learn what they are interested in seeing, all while introducing yourself and showing your art to the community.
