Thursday/Friday, January 2/3 (2020): 10:00am - 4:00pm Please note that storing your wares after January 3 may incur late fees, as space is extremely limited at The Launchpad and the R2 Gallery will need to be prepared for its next exhibition.


Work shifts are mandatory for staffing the gallery and each participating artisan must volunteer for a minimum of two 4-hour shifts (unless we’ve made other arrangements with you). We’d also really appreciate any additional time you’re able to give us. Staffing the gallery means greeting patrons, maintaining adequate stocks of merchandise and completing sales transactions. You are the best representative of your work and we have observed a consistent increase in sales when the artisan is present. If unable to volunteer, see Fee/Commission Schedule below.

Shifts will be assigned on a ‘first-come/first-choice’ basis from Thursday, November 21 through Saturday, December 28. Upon acceptance, we will send you the available volunteer shift dates & times.


Again, work shifts (see above) are MANDATORY and are the responsibility of the artisans to participate as part of Deck The Walls. If you’re unable to volunteer, or have a responsible party cover for you, Carbondale Arts will instead retain a 40% (instead of the normal 30%) commission for your sales. 


1. Carbondale Arts retains the artistic license to create displays for your wares that best serves the gallery and our holiday market’s unique aesthetic.

2. Carbondale Arts will set up displays using our own gallery pedestals and shelving, but please let us know if you have additional display equipment/props/mannequins/etc for us to consider during setting up your wares, especially jewelry.

3. Let us know of any other special requirements for displaying your wares and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.


Carbondale Arts retains a 30% commission for all wares sold (unless you are unable to volunteer, in which case Carbondale Arts will retain a 40% commission for sales, as mentioned above). Commissions retained by Carbondale Arts go directly to maintaining the gallery space and providing arts education in our community’s schools. A check for your sales will be mailed within 30 days of the closing of Deck The Walls to the name and address you provided on your application. Please be sure to refer to the Carbondale Arts R2 Gallery Protocol document on our website (available at for other general terms and conditions of showing in our gallery.
