One Promoters Response: Meeting Artists Halfway in Lakewood, Colorado

By Julie Cochrane, posted 07/14/20 16:19:13   Category » Event Highlights

Hammered and Hung is an Event Based Art Gallery currently producing art festivals and farmers markets in Lakewood, Colorado. It's evident by their responses to COVID-19 that they are committed to ensuring that their local artists have a place to show and sell work this summer.

West Colfax Farmers Market

Their West Colfax Farmers Market is taking an awesome direction this season to show how much they care. Having realized what an impact COVID-19 is having on artists and vendors, they were quick to take action. They adjusted the monthly market season to run from June thru October in order to get past the stay at home requirements. They are also easing the burden by offering the market to vendors for free. That's right, no vendor fees but a donation is encouraged.

Who is Eligible to Participate in Farmers Markets
  • Growers of produce
  • Specialty Foods (honey, salsa & chili, bread, chili roasters, dips & sauces, jams & jellies etc.)
  • Coffees & Specialty Drinks
  • Crafts and Artisan made goods :(jewelry, apparel, sculpture, crochet, leather work etc.)
  • Bath, Body, and Spirit (bath bombs, CBD, lotions, candles, supplements, etc.)

Heart of Art

An outdoor art festival also in Lakewood, Heart of Art will take place next month.

"We will take precautionary measures as recommended by the CDC to ensure that we are keeping everyone safe. We have made the decision to change this art fest from a fine art fest to include other artisans. All items will still be hand crafted, but we will not jury entries. H&H will continue to do what we can to support our struggling artists and vendors, therefore, we’ve lowered the price from $150 to $100 for a 10x10 booth."
- Event Website

By lowering their price and changing their event's model to be non-juried and open to all artist types, Heart of Art will be able to allow more makers to participate.

Have a look at their safety guidelines mandating masks, social distancing, and hand-washing stations.
