An artist registration is fit for ONE ARTIST ONLY who has a physical studio. A community partner is a business, collective, gallery, or organization that supports, encourages, and promotes the visual arts in Guilford County If your organization does this, you are a community partner!
If you are a studio building and you would like to register as a community partner you must have at least one artist registered for the event before you can do so. Community partner registration does not include individual registrations for artists within your building.
Each participant must register individually. The benefit of registering individually is that visitors tend to gravitate to locations with more ArtStock artists. By registering individually you are increasing the number of destinations in your neighborhood, and are thereby more likely to attract visitors!
No, we do not recommend or encourage this setup. It is in your best interest to register and officially be included on the Tour. This way you can attend all ArtStock events, be considered for exhibitions, and be included in promotional materials.
- We want you to participate!
- 2+ registered artists are encouraged to share a space during ArtStock.
- Please visit our ArtStock community Facebook page to search for temporary studio set ups.
