For the third year, I am participating in the annual Wesleyan Artist Market, in Peachtree Corner’s, GA. They are celebrating their 17th year, with tons of artists, a children’s activity area, live performances, food trucks, and amazing local and handmade products. One of my favorite things about the Artist Market is a portion of the sales is donated to the Fine Arts department of Wesleyan School. As one of the art teachers at Wesleyan, I love this aspect of the market. It means that every year, each Fine Arts teacher gets to submit a “wish list” of items large and small they would like to add to their classroom. This funding has helped me start glass fusing in my classes, create a sculpture garden, and start saving towards a pug mill. They help our programs continue to grow and help enrich our students lives by supporting the arts.
With Mother’s day on the horizon, this is the perfect opportunity to pick up a few gifts, as well as spoil yourself. Items range in price from a few dollars to thousands of dollars. You will find baked goods, pottery, birdhouses, jewelry, oil paintings, mixed media, and photographs. Read more about the artists and schedule of events here.
The market will be open starting tomorrow!

My set up from last year (forgive the blurry, dark picture). I have some of the same pieces, including my letter encasutics, letter prints, and mini 6″x6″ encaustics, and some new pieces large and small.
I have been experimenting more with carving into the encaustic wax, and I have a new carved birch tree piece that will be available at the market.
This year I also plan to put out a few of my pottery pieces. Come check out my handmade mugs, bowls, and new slip cast pieces.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. Help me spread the word about my blog and the Wesleyan Artist Market by sharing with others. I hope to see you this week!
