Pre-Opening for the 2019 Wesleyan Artist Market
Each year, we look forward to hosting over 75 professional artists from all over the region. We are a Fine Art, Jewelry and Fine Wares Show. We offer a broad spectrum of art to appeal to a wide range of patrons. From casual shoppers to avid art collectors, there is something for just about everyone at our Market. Year 2020 will be our 22nd consecutive show, and we look forward to building on the momentum from 2019. We are grateful to host several thousand guests throughout the three day event, and our goal is to continue to expand our reach to the broader community.
Artist Set-up – Wednesday, April 22 and Thursday, April 23, 2020. Move-in time slots will be offered in early Spring, first come first serve basis, via Wufoo sign-ups. We have a loading dock area, carts and an elevator (if needed), plus volunteers available for both Load-in and Load-out.
Artist Booth Information/What to Bring- Booths for each artist consist of 4 x 4 x 4 pegged panels, set up in a U shape, or a 6′ table (extended booth size for Top 10 Returning Artists from previous year). The bracing across the front of each booth will provide an easy way for each artist to add additional lighting. Artists are responsible for bringing their own lighting (we highly recommend). We provide seating for you. The Artist Market also provides artists with hooks for pegboards, booth signs, name tags, and sales tags. We also suggest artists bring draping (neutral), and any other small set-up elements (table, display rack, baskets, small rug, etc.) to add interest to their booths.
Artist Meals and Snacks – We are pleased to offer an Artist Hospitality Suite for our artists and their registered booth assistants.
Artist Participation – We do require thatprofessional artists be present the entire run of the show. Our artists are what make our show special–we need you there! Friday is our longest day (hours) at the Market. Many artists will bring a registered guest to assist at their booth on Friday and/or Saturday.
Spreading the word – For the 2020 Market, our comprehensive marketing program includes: advertisements and features via social media, direct mail via The Wesleyan Magazine (distribution of 4,000+), digital billboard(s), radio, signage, banners, posters, and flyers . We are excited to announce we are in collaboration with Imagine Advertising and Publishing, Inc. for professional services. Additionally, Peachtree Corners Life Magazine and Radio is our Presenting Media Sponsor Group for the 2020 Market, and we will also advertise via our Opening Night Media Sponsor Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle Magazine, as well as several other print and digital outlets, including The Atlantan and Interiors Magazines.
