Pop Up Art Exhibition

TLDR Version:

  • You are invited to present your work at our Pop-Up Makers Exhibition.
  • Friday February 15, 2019 5pm-10pm at 27621 John R Rd. Madison Heights in the Farnum Plaza.
  • Fill out this form to RSVP as an artist before Feb 1.

For those of you who may not know me personally, my name is Kymm, and I am co-owner of Clark’s Fabrication here in Madison Heights. I would like to formally invite you to participate in our first ever Pop Up Makers Exhibition. The idea began when I decided to create an event to showcase our students work, and thought it would be a great opportunity to spotlight the amazing work of local makers we see and work with every day. This event will also highlight the development of the downtown area and positive representation of the arts in of Madison Heights. 

The exhibition is being held on Friday February 15, 2019 from 5pm-10pm in a 3600 sq. ft. empty retail space in the Farnum Plaza at 27621 John R Rd. , donated by Laurencelle Properties, here in Madison Heights. We will provide the space, food and drinks (alcoholic beverages included – 21+ only). We are asking artists to provide 3 or more works that can be displayed, art gallery style, within a 10 x 10 sq ft. space. These can hang on the wall, or be staged in any manner of your choosing. Submissions can include any form of works and mediums. The objective is to spotlight what you do, with your hands, to make a living.

Because this is a pop-up style event, you will be responsible for how you would want your work staged. The walls of the space are all empty and slatted to accommodate retail shelving. You will have to consider this for pieces that need to hang. We will provide some flush notch hooks for hanging pieces. We are not able to put any new holes in the walls. This is a one night only, pop up event. We must leave the space as we found it. You may bring work you want to sell, or just pieces you have made that you want to show off. The idea behind the show is to bring appreciation to local artisans, and the services they provide. We are not asking for any registration fees or commissions for your work, just your participation. If you are selling your work, please be prepared to collect payment in whichever way you see fit.

Further, we will be providing paid marketing to showcase this event, as well as each artist individually. To do this we will need you to provide us the following:

  • 3-5 pictures of your work. It does not have to be the work you are using at the event, but an example of what it is that you do.
  • Your logo / name / what you use for branding.
  • A small blip about what you do. Make sure this is representational of your brand as well.
  • Contact information, including links to your website and social media pages.

With this information we will provide graphic images to be shared on social media, featured content on our website, and directory of how you can be contacted for commissions (should you want to), as well as once a week paid advertising for the event, targeting people of general shared interests.

Set up for the event begins Wednesday February 13. The space will be available on that Wednesday and Thursday between the hours of 5pm-10pm for you to drop off your work. You will work with the event director to set up your things throughout the building. Depending on the work you provide, this may mean your pieces are spread out, or all together in one space. It is an art gallery style event, so we want to make sure our guests are able to walk about and enjoy everything in the space.

This event is free to attend, but we will be requesting a suggested donation of $10 per person at the door. We will have an online registration form for attendees as well, to get a feel for what to expect as far as attendance. You are welcome to invite as many guests as you like. The money collected from donations will be donated to The Madison Heights Arts and Culture Advisory Board, who is currently raising money to pay professional artists to paint murals throughout the city. We hope to provide enough money that they are able to pay these artists fairly for their work.
