Why Participate in Encore Weekend

  1. Increased opportunity for visitors to see and purchase your work. Here is a quote from one of last years participants:
    “The second Saturday was very busy with lots of sales… To set up in my home is so much work that it is worth doing the 2 weekends. Several people came the first weekend and came by the second to buy some paintings they had thought about during the week.”
  2. The public has spoken! Guests loved the Encore weekend option to visit more artists and to get a second look at their favorites.
  3. Friends, Family and Art Fans that are busy first weekend can visit on Second Weekend!
  4. The Large number of participating artists are more easily visited over two weekends.
  5. You’re already all set-up, so why not!
