Artists and craftspeople are invited to submit applications for participating in the annual Holiday Bazaar of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis, which will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2003. We are seeking items which are affordable for holiday shoppers, are aesthetically pleasing, innovative and created with durable construction or archival standards. Once again, the emphasis is on original works of art and crafts. Individuals may request an entire display space or several people may wish to go together to submit an eclectic collection of their work. The booth may be staffed by the artists or the organizers can provide staffing. For an application or more information, contact Loreen Olufson (541)754-6207 (evenings) or loreeno@proaxis.com
