2022 Artful Sundays Application

Artful Sundays is a series of outdoor, juried art fairs.

Hunterdon Art Museum is inviting applications by artists to sell their work on Sundays on the Museum’s terrace.  Submitted work will be juried.  Artists will be notified of acceptance by email.      All work must be original and created by the artist.

No reproductions are acceptable for display or sale.

Participation in a minimum of two Sundays is required.  Spaces are limited so apply early.

Payment: Please do not send checks with this application.   Upon notification of acceptance, you will be asked to provide a check in the amount of $95 for each of the Sundays in which you will be participating.  To reserve your space, checks must be received within one week of notification.

Publicity: Artful Sundays will be publicized on HAM’s website, social media channels, in email campaigns to over 4,500 people, and in local press.  Artists must commit to publicizing the event on their social media channels and websites.

Facilities:  HAM will provide two 20 x 40 tents. Up to 12 artists (6 per tent to allow for social distancing) will sell their work under the tents. The Museum can provide two 3’ x 6‘ tables and 2 chairs per artist. Tables will be set up in an L.  Artists must provide tablecloths or any other display items.

Limited wifi is available, however, the Museum cannot guarantee that wifi will be accessible at all times.  Artists are responsible for their own sales and are encouraged to use their phone’s hotspot.  Artists should have a point of sale account with Stripe, Square or similar company and a phone or tablet in order to accept credit card sales.  

A limited number of electrical outlets are available.  Artists must notify HAM on the following application if they will require electricity.

The Museum’s restrooms will be available to exhibiting artists.  

Set Up and Take Down: Artists may have to carry tables and chairs from the Museum to the terrace and return them to the Museum at the end of the day. If you will be bringing your own display furniture, it must fit in the space that would be taken up by HAM‘s tables (6’ x9’).  Artists will be responsible for removing all trash, cleaning all spills, and leaving their space as it was found.  

Loading and Unloading: HAM does not have a parking lot. Artists will pull up beside the terrace, unload their work, drive to the Water Street parking lot, which is just a few minutes’ walk from HAM, and return to the terrace to set up their display. This will be reversed at the end of the day.  To avoid a traffic jam, artists will be assigned a specific time to unload their work in the morning.  We ask artists to be mindful of other artists at the end of the day and be patient as others load their cars.

Cancellations:  HAM reserves the right to cancel an event due to inclement weather or other emergency. Decisions regarding weather/emergency cancellations may be made on the day of the event. If an event is cancelled by HAM because of weather or other cause, HAM will refund the $95 fee.  

No refunds will be given to artists who cancel under any circumstances.  

Sales Tax:  Participating artists must be registered with New Jersey to collect NJ sales tax. Sellers are responsible for collecting and reporting sales tax of 6.625%. Certain wearable items are exempt from some tax collection in New Jersey. It is the artist’s responsibility to find out if their work qualifies for exemption.

Upon notification of acceptance, you will be asked to provide a check in the amount of $95 for each of the Sundays in which you will be participating.  To reserve your space, checks must be received within one week of notification.
