A One Day Artisan Market on Sunday, November 13, 2016, 10am – 4pm
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 in our one day Artisan Market and Opening Reception for our Off the Wall Art Show.
ABOUT WWAC ARTISAN MARKET: This year marks the sixth anniversary of our Artisan Market which has grown into a respected venue for showcasing the work of very talented Artisans and attracts visitors from the greater Princeton area. It is held concurrent with our Off the Wall Affordable Art Sale which is a juried art show bringing in artists from all over NJ. 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 our events to the public through our extensive on-line lists, press releases, postcards, flyers, event websites and supporters of WWAC.
