The Rundown on Booths

There’s no one kind of booth at Artlantis, and if anything we want to encourage people to go about their participation in new and unconventional ways. For example, here are 3 different types of artists booths from previous years:

Ashley Anderson’s booth is the most typical in that artwork is displayed throughout the tent as you might see at any festival. He has a range of work (including prints, block carvings, and t-shirts) displayed on one of the walls Artlantis can provide.

Joe Tsambiras’s booth is less common in that the work is created instead of displayed. Here, Joe has a number of images that he can create using a press on site. A number of artists have booths where they’re doing face paint, caricature or portrait drawing, or pinhole camera development.

Plastic Aztecs’s booth is the least common in that it’s more of an experiential space. Here they created a comfortable den-like booth where they served tea and sold zines and cds they’d made just for the event. There have been photobooths, paint “shooting-ranges” and tarot reading booths in the past, and these types of booths have proven just as financially successful as more traditional ones because of the novelty they bring.

Plastic Aztecs socialize with guests offering them tea and selling zines/cds.

Visitors to Platic Aztec’s booth enjoyed tea and conversation.

Booth Pricing:

$50 – Rental of a 10×10 space within the artists’ market. Please bring a tent and anything else you might need.

$75 – 10×10 space and a 10×10 tent which will be setup for you.

$100 – 10×10 space, tent, peg-hole wall, table & chairs which will all be setup for you.

Applications for 2013 are closed.

Happy Spring, y’all! Year 5 is upon us and we’re excited to see what Atlanta’s busy artists have been up to all year. For additional information about the application, see below.

All interested artists, musicians and organizations, please thoroughly read and fill out this application. Each year, we have more applicants than space available. This means that Artlantis is a juried festival. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis starting in April.  There are no fees to apply to Artlantis.

  • Artists and craftspeople, it is required that you provide at least 3 image examples of your work. If you do not have an artist’s site, email your images to artlantisfestival@gmail.com. Anyone planning an interactive booth (we love those), there will be space on the application to disclose your plans. 
  • Musicians, please send a link to your music. We do not charge bands to play at Artlantis. If you wanted a booth in the artist’s market as well as a time slot to play onstage, you must apply separately for each. 
  • Organizations (galleries, collectives, bloggers, etc.), there will be space on the application to let us know how you intend to use your booth. Whether it be promotional, interactive, you’re selling art, etc., please provide us with some details on your plans.

We can’t wait to see your work and ideas!

How you can help

ARTLANTIS logoThe 4th annual ARTLANTIS Arts and Music Festival is just around the corner! We started Artlantis for the same reason we started Beep Beep Gallery: to showcase and encourage the work of local emerging artists.

Artlantis is an all day summer festival that takes place on the lawn of Druid Hills Baptist Church. Unlike other Atlanta festivals, Artlantis is unique in that it exclusively showcases art and music from local talent. With ever-gaining momentum, Artlantis is well on it’s way to being a local tradition.

By creating this festival, we hope to not only expose visitors to a section of the Atlanta art scene that they wouldn’t usually encounter at most summer festivals, but alternatively to expose the artists to a larger audience they may not normally encounter in their day to day.

Each year, attendance and interest grows. And thanks to the support of the larger Atlanta community, Artlantis keeps coming back.

WHY ARTLANTIS NEEDS YOU

We will continuously be promoting the festival but need your help. Artlantis requires community to shape and support it. For Artlantis to truly thrive, it needs participants and supporters to take a moment to promote it, as well.

There are many reasons why you would want to promote Artlantis:

◊ As a festival that aggressively features local artists, we are providing a space for local artists to make a living, and as such, helping Atlanta’s art scene flourish.

◊ Participating artists offer their best work at affordable prices. Great for local art collectors. And aspiring ones, too!

◊ Each year, some artists choose to do interactive booths, allowing visitors to get their creative juices flowing and take home something they created themselves.

◊ Bringing together artists and entrepreneurs from all over the greater Atlanta area, Artlantis is the perfect place to meet local talent and get to know the people who help shape this city’s rich culture.

◊ It’s fun, there’s nothing else quite like it, and the more the merrier!

WAYS YOU CAN HELP PROMOTE

Please begin promoting asap! If you’re participating as an artist, consider promoting Artlantis as a way for you to promote your art. When you share Artlantis with people, add pics of your art, too! Let’s continue to build the excitement and community aspect of the festival.

ARTLANTIS at Druid Hills Baptist Church

ARTLANTIS takes place on the front lawn of Druid Hills Baptist Church at the corner of Ponce de Leon Ave. and N. Highland Ave.

Here are some suggestions on how to promote:

◊ Check out our blog. Post comments, share the blog with your email list or on your website: https://artlantisfestival.wordpress.com/. Also, blog about us!

◊ “Attend” the facebook event and “invite” as many people as you know as well. It takes a while but hand-picking people to invite in your address book is much more effective than just “sharing” an event on facebook.

◊ Share the event, too, anyway. And post comments with pics of your art and your website there as well: http://www.facebook.com/events/366760556698660/

◊ Become a “fan” of the facebook page. post info about your art and “share” this page with all your friends: http://www.facebook.com/artlantisfestival

◊ Ask people to help with the festival! We love volunteers. This can mean a variety of things. If you’re interested in volunteering, shoot us an email at artlantisfestival@gmail.com.

We thank you for your support and we hope to see you there!
