The guild produces Art in the Park, a fine art contemporary craft show and sale, the second weekend in October each year. The show is held in Sequiota Park in Springfield, Missouri under the sponsorship of The Springfield-Greene County Park Board. Admission is free to the public.
While Art in the Park is the premier activity of guild members, an artist does NOT have to be a guild member to qualify. Every artist has the same opportunity to qualify to show in the art festival through the anonymous jury process.
Sales Tax – Please note there are new rules for the State of MO
Artists are responsible for paying their own sales tax. Missouri now requires all vendors, both in-state and out-of-state, to have their own Missouri tax identification number if they make sales at retail. Vendors must use this sales tax number to report all their sales tax information.. All artists must have a Missouri tax ID number before attending the festival.
Please copy and paste this link http://dor.mo.gov/forms/2643S.pdf to download the new Missouri Special Events form. You will need to allow at least 4 weeks for this form to be processed and your tax ID to be returned to you by snail mail.
Call for Artists
The guild now has a PayPal account. If you have Paypal or have juried artist status from a prior year, you can now apply online. Choose from the printed application for standard mail or the juried or non-juried applications for online processing.
