First Annual Craft by the Harbor Invitation


We are inviting you to apply to be one of the exhibitors at our First Annual Craft by the Harbor event, August 25-26, 2018, on the scenic grounds of the Reboli Center for Art and History located in Stony Brook, NY. The Reboli Center opened in November 2016 and after a year of enthusiastically and critically acclaimed exhibits and programs is inaugurating the first of its outdoor programs for artists.

The Reboli Center Jury is looking for crafts of exceptional workmanship, design, and materials that have been made either totally by the exhibitor or with the help of a limited number of assistants/apprentices. All applicants will be juried for the available spaces to ensure that the event hosts only extraordinary handmade crafts that will establish a framework of excellence for future years. Upon acceptance, a booth fee of $275 for a 10 x 10 space for the two-day event will be required. No additional fees will be assessed. Proceeds from the event will be used for educational exhibits and programs at the Reboli

The Reboli Center is a not-for-profit art organization located in a historic building in the center of beautiful Stony Brook Village between Avalon Park and Sand Street Beach, and its grounds overlook the mill creek leading into Stony Brook Harbor. The creek is heavily populated with herons, egrets, swans, ducks, and cormorants. The site already is a favorite weekend spot for visitors, and Craft by the Harbor will be a must-see summer event.

The Three Village community of Stony Brook, Setauket, and Old Field, as well as the adjoining communities, are primarily composed of professional and academic individuals who are interested in the fine arts and crafts. Accommodations in the village include ample free parking for visitors and six restaurants. Security will be provided after hours. Three prizes of $500, $250, and$100 will be awarded by a jury on August 26. Promotion of the event will be extensive through a variety of media.

The below application must be returned no later than April 1, 2018. Notification of acceptance will occur on April 15, 2018. We hope that you will want to be one of the select exhibitors at the First Annual Craft by the Harbor! We look forward to reviewing your application.
