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.

Craft Fair: 2014 Wesleyan Artist Market

wesleyan   The 16th annual Wesleyan Artist Market is coming up next week, May 1st-May 3rd!

I’m incredibly excited to be involved in this wonderful program again this year. I am blessed to work at an amazing school and have opportunities like the Artist Market. Not only will I have the space to display and sell my work, but the 25% they take from the total sales goes back into the Fine Arts department at my school. In my two short years working at Wesleyan School I have already had glass supplies, plants and picnics tables for a garden outside of my classroom, and a brand new outdoor kiln funded by the Artist Market.

Last year I sold over 30 items, and I hope to be just as successful this year. At my booth I will have a variety of size and priced encaustics, including letter and silhouette encaustics, and fused glass, similar to my offerings last year. In addition, I will be introducing new items, from my “sketch” series (the boat painting below is one in the series), and letter prints for just $10 apiece.
