With your application, please submit three images of work labeled with Artist name, medium, and dimensions. We are looking for clean, well-lit representations of the work you intend to exhibit at the Market. These images may be uploaded at the end of the website application.

All artist applications must be submitted by October 15, 2021. A confirmation of receipt of submission will be sent to applicants via email.

After reviewing submitted images, the panel will invite applicants with the highest scores to participate. Notification of acceptance will be emailed as soon as possible after receiving application, no later than November 1, 2021. Space is limited, so please apply early. Booth fees of those applicants not accepted into the market will be returned.

WCA abides by all state and federal guidelines regarding the novel coronavirus. In the event that such guidelines prohibit large gatherings in fall 2021, we will adapt or cancel the Market as necessary. In the event of cancellation, artists’ fees will be refunded.
