Hey artsy, craftsy folks, ACE: The Arts Community of Easton is looking for people to demonstrate and display at the Weyerbacher Wednesday Easton Farmers' Market ACE tent.
Weyerbacher Wednesday (4pm-8pm) at the market is a fun night to exhibit and demo. This year artists also have the option to sell their wares in the space!
Artists have a few options:
-make the space imitate your personal studio (within reason of course, street and sidewalk must stay clean), allow the public to witness your craft in action by setting up an easel or table where you work your magic while you network with the public.
-create a fun workshop for children or adults (the voodoo doll making for adults last year was a big hit!) and remember funding is available for some demos.
-have a pop-up gallery to promote a show you are in (you must provide easels or whatever you need to display your work).
-POETS: stage a breakout reading where you can sell your book or promote your upcoming event.
Just some suggestions to get you thinking.
Here are the dates for this season:
June 4th (opening Wednesday)

The Lehigh Valley Vanguard:
“The Lehigh Valley Vanguard is a progressive visual and literary symposium of Lehigh Valley intellectuals and artists. We try to feature narratives that speculate on the state of our current society and the betterment of its future: locally and globally.”
What we are looking for:
We are currently seeking visual art work, op-eds, book reviews, short fiction and poetry that fits the mission of the publication for inclusion in our introductory issue, launching April 2014.
The Vanguard is primarily an online publication. However, in an attempt to preserve the intellectual culture of our time in an archive, with every online issue 100 print copies will be issued. This will serve as a time capsule of our regional, progressive intellectual culture.
Op-eds and book reviews should be around 1500 words. Short fiction will be evaluated case-by-case.
Poetry should be around 200 lines or less.
Art work should be submitted with an artist statement and a description of the artwork.
This is an opportunity for subversive artists and writers seeking an outlet in alternative new media. The Vanguard is sponsored and cross promoted by Raging Chicken Press.
Deadline to submit: March 17th, 2014
