Call for Vendors
The Tennessee Valley Art Association is calling for vendor applications for the first Tennessee Valley Art & Antique Fair! This event will take place at the Florence – Lauderdale Coliseum in Florence, Alabama from September 2 – 4, 2022.
What are we looking for?
Our goal is to offer a beautiful variety of high quality art and antiques across a range of price points. We hope to have a little of something for everyone – anything from fine antiques & vintage items to contemporary fine art. The fair will heavily feature antiques but will also include a small collection of carefully curated original art and artisan crafts. Antique dealers should only offer items that are in good to excellent condition without major breaks, chips, peeling finishes, etc. Primitive items should be in a sturdy condition with a suitably stable surface. We are not interested in stocking the fair with DIY pieces. Although the trend for painted furniture exists, we would strongly prefer to have antique pieces with their original finishes.
Are there any excluded Items?
Yes. Firearms will not be allowed to be sold in the Art & Antique Fair for safety and insurance reasons. Native American items such as historic pottery, projectile points, etc. will not be allowed to be sold. As a cultural institution, we feel it is our obligation to protect, respect, and promote the wellbeing of our indigenous cultures. Contemporary Native American items are permitted. Specific questions can be addressed by email.
