The St. Louis Arts Chamber invites artists and artisans from all over the St. Louis region to sell their work at the Greater St. Louis Holiday Arts Expo at the Kirkwood Performing Arts Center on the post-Thanksgiving weekend (Saturday November 27–Sunday November 28).
In addition to the physical event, there will also be a digital Arts Expo (Saturday November 28–Monday November 31), where accepted artists are invited to post artwork for sale online in addition to their physical booth space. The digital booths will be open online for sales from Saturday–Monday. There are no extra fees for the digital booths.
All submissions will be juried by a panel of regional artists and art professionals selected by the St. Louis Arts Chamber of Commerce. The jurors will select work based on balance of media categories, originality, design, and craftsmanship. Decisions of the jury panel are final.
