Art in the Arboretum Registration

Through MySaleManager.Net (MSM) you can register and pay online, and AFTER you are accepted into the show, enter your inventory and print barcodes for selling. When you see the word ‘consignor’ think ‘artist.’ The MSM system will handle artist registration, inventory management, and checkout.  Of course, if you are more comfortable with the previous manual process, you are free to fill out the printed registration form.  2017 Artist Prospectus & Registration
