17th Annual Wesleyan Artist Market


Print

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.

T.G.I. Friday’s Summer of Fridays Tour: Artists and Crafters Feature

summer of fridays 1

I am so excited to share a recent feature of mine in T.G.I. Friday’s new campaign, local and handmade.

In an effort to rebrand their company, T.G.I. Friday’s has been busy meeting artists, crafters, musicians, and all people artsy across the US. To keep with the theme they recruited photographers from Instagram to document these “makers of America.”

Through the Atlanta based, all things handmade shop, Crafted Westside, I was brought to the attention of the tour and photographer, Daniel Davis. I meet with him one morning at Crafted, and enjoyed talking about his last 3 month adventure traveling down the East Coast, meeting a variety of crafters. He took amazing photographs of my work, and included a wonderful write up on the TGIF, “Summer of Fridays,” blog.
