Call to Artists Little Forest Hills Dallas - Artists and businesses willing to share space

October 16-17th., Sat./Sun.  10-5 pm.Little Forest Hills area, east of White Rock Lake

This is a collection of local artists who are gathering for two days to show their work.  We are seeking studios, businesses and open spaces to host area artists for the event.  The More Artists… Tour! coincides with the White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour who also have the majority of their artists in the Forest Hills/Little Forest Hills area, east of the lake.  This is NOT part of the WRLAST.  They want to be clear that they do not sanction, sponsor or support this event.

I’d like to find at least 10 studio spaces in the Forest Hill area and have 30+ artists participate. 
Although, this will be an excellent opportunity to sell art, the mission of the tour must be to connect with the art community and provide quality exposure for talented artist in the area.  It is a wonderful weekend for art enthusiasts, collectors and just creative people to get out and meet.
Participating artists will be included on the More Artists Brochure/map, the web site with links, and signage to drive traffic to their studios.
We will split expenses, that should be less than $100 per artist.  Each artist is responsible for their own postage to mail out brochures.

The success of the More Artists… Tour! will be the caliber of artists participating.  My guess is that art enthusiast don’t care about the organization of an event, just about the opportunity to see good art and meet amazing artists.

We have www.moreartist.com, www.moreartists.org and www.moreartiststour.com all go to the same web site.
