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!

More About Booths

We’re very excited to be producing our 4th annual ARTLANTIS Arts and Music Festival! We started Artlantis for the same reason we started Beep Beep Gallery: to showcase and encourage the work of local emerging artists. By creating a festival, we hope to not only expose these artists to a larger audience, but alternatively to expose that audience to a section of the Atlanta art scene they  wouldn’t usually encounter at most summer festivals.

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 way. 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 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.

For more information on the festival please email artlantisfestival@gmail.com or visit one of our sites: artlantisfestival.wordpress.com and facebook.com/artlantisfestival.

What 2011 artists had to say about ARTLANTIS:

Sarah Smith of Smith Craft

I can say that the fact you offer tent and table rental is critical.  Also your pricepoint is perfect for my work.  I feel that most Atlanta festivals have gotten out of hand with their booth fees, but you are reasonably priced.  I was able to make my booth fee back and make a small profit, so I would consider it a successful show.  I’m not sure how you marketed the event, but I seemed to have lots of inquisitive people coming to my booth to ask questions and to get to know me and my work; I barely was able to stop talking all day! I would love to be able to be apart of Artlantis again next year!

Amanda Miller-Lopez of Flex Family

1) What was great about Artlantis this year?  This is our first year attending so we can’t really compare…but the mix of artists was great and the people were all super nice!

2) What could be improved upon for next year? The weather…okay I know you guys can’t fix that.  In all seriousness, the only thing I can think of is maybe more advertising…but that’s only if I have to choose something.  We thought pretty much everything was great!

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? Yes!

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Yes!

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? YES, please!

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) We just want to thank you all for your hard work in putting on a great event.  We hope to be back next year!

B.J. Rathur

1) What was great about Artlantis this year?  I was surprised at the amount of traffic considering how hot it was.  It makes me think next year could be even better.

2) What could be improved upon for next year? better weather!

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental?   I made $1000

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? yup

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? I will be back.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?)  Just want to say thanks for the opportunity I had a great time.

Charles (CHUK) Vinson

1) What was great about Artlantis this year?
The heat!  No, I’m kidding.  I thought the selection of bands and artists was really strong and having The King of Pops there really made the heat suck less.

2) What could be improved upon for next year?
Hmm not too sure… having more food vendors on premises would probably be good.  That and any other way to provide cold refreshment or fans to keep people around, but it may just have been anomalous that the heat was such an issue.
Sharing the pegboard with the person behind me was kindof a bummer, as it reduced my booth layout options.

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental?
Sure did!  I sold $600+ worth of art and my net profit after art production costs and booth rental was around $350.

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended?
Considering the surface-of-the-sun level of heat, yes.

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future?
Yes.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?)
Seems like that sweetly positioned empty R. Land spot could have been given to someone else… not sure if there’s a way to detect that sort of thing, but it was weird he had no presence and there was just an empty spot with an R. Land sign laying on it.  That was a killer corner spot!
