Jury Process/Membership Application


​Who We Are

In early 2013 a group of Oregon-Washington Handmade Vendors got together and created, from scratch, an Artists' Retail Co-Operative with the concept of selling their crafted art. We are a member-driven co-op business comprised of member Artists and Artisans who are supported by the work of an elected Board & additional Committees. All Artists share the responsibility of working in the store, paying dues, and contributing to committees. We have developed several membership levels to choose from in order to meet a variety of the members Artists' needs.
 

Mission statement

The Portland Artisans' Co-Op Team (PACT) is an organization dedicated to creating a venue for local members of PACT to sell their products.  As a secondary mission of PACT we support each other as artists, encouraging each other to be better artists and helping each other learn and grow. PACT Members are participating in Artistic Portland.
 

Jury Process

• The jury committee meets on the first Monday of each month.
 
• Schedule your jury by contacting us through our websites online application if you have not already done so.

• You may pay your non-refundable $20.00 Jury Application Fee at the time of the jury meeting via check or money order.

 Bring at least six samples of your artwork (exceptions may be made based on art form) and a portfolio, if applicable. We must see the actual products you plan to sell in our store. Presentation of your art (ie. mats, frames, packaging, price tags, etc.) is as important as the quality of your work.

• Bring photos of you creating your craft with you to your jury, if available.

• Be prepared to do a short, casual presentation of your work. A 10-15 minute presentation is usually good. Please tell us about yourself and any skills you can bring to our co-op.

• Be prepared for a brief Q&A session after your presentation. The remainder of the meeting will then be closed to members only.

• The Result: We will vote and have someone contact you within 24 hours to let you know the results. If accepted, we will then give you further information about getting started.
