Hunterdon Art Museum is pleased to announce an expansion of Artful Sundays. New this year will be a fall Artful Sundays on October 15. We’re now accepting applications from artists.
Artful Sundays, a series of outdoor juried art fairs, is in its third year. It takes place on Hunterdon Art Museum’s Toshiko Takaezu Terrace, one of the most scenic sites in New Jersey. Overlooking the South Branch of the Raritan River with views of the Art Museum’s historic stone mill and the Red Mill Museum Village, it is a spot where tourists and residents gather.
For the fall event, approximately twenty-two spaces will be available throughout the Terrace. Artists must provide their own tents and display furniture.
Artful Sundays presents a unique opportunity for selected artists to build their network, exhibit their work, meet potential buyers and make sales.

Unlike in the summer, artists must provide their own tents. Artists must bring their own 10’ x 10’ pop up tents and all 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 will be responsible for setting up and taking down their pop up tents and their display items. Artists will be responsible for removing their own 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, 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 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.
A $25 non-refundable application fee must be submitted at the time of application. This fee will be deducted from the event fee if you are accepted. Upon notification of acceptance, you will be asked to provide a check for the remaining portion of your fee. To reserve your space, checks must be received within one week of notification.
Marketing & Promotion:
Artful Sundays will be publicized on HAM’s website, social media channels, through email marketing to over 4,000 people, and PR efforts. Artists must commit to publicizing the event on their social media channels and websites.
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 fee.
No refunds will be given to artists who cancel under any circumstances.
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.
Hunterdon Art Museum requires that all Artful Sundays vendors carry general liability insurance with limits of not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence and name Hunterdon Art Museum, 7 Lower Center Street, Clinton, New Jersey 08809 as an additional insured party for the date of the event. A certificate of insurance from your insurance company as proof of this coverage is required to be emailed or mailed to the Museum. Hunterdon Art Museum assumes no responsibility for theft, damage, loss of exhibitor work, personal property or any display items.
