the junction where the arts and community meet

A One Day Artisan Market on Sunday, November 12, 2017, 10am – 5pm 

The WWAC Artisan Market is a celebration of fine arts and crafts. We are looking for Artisans to sell their innovative handcrafted items including jewelry, ceramics, fiber art, wood, glass, paper, and more at this one day Artisan Market and opening reception for the “Off the Wall” affordable art show. 

Drawing an audience from the greater Princeton area, the Artisan Market is a great place to sell your work. Last year over 600 visitors shopped our Artisan Market.

Now seeking applications!

ABOUT WWAC ARTISAN MARKET
This year marks the seventh anniversary of our Artisan Market which has grown into a respected venue for showcasing the work of talented artisans and attracts visitors from the greater Princeton region.  It is held concurrent with the “Off the Wall Affordable Art Sale” which is a juried art show bringing in artists from all over NJ and beyond.  Both events will be held in time for holiday shopping, offering beautiful handmade items and artwork. Please note that submission to the Off the Wall Affordable Art Sale will be under a separate prospectus.  WWAC is committed to promoting events to the public through extensive on-line lists, press releases, postcards, flyers, event websites and supporters of WWAC.
