Fresh Arts is seeking submissions of original artwork, craft, and hand-made goods for its juried 2014 Winter Holiday Art Market.
Each fall, Fresh Arts hosts the annual Winter Holiday Art Market (WHAM) at Winter Street Studios. This three-day exhibition, sale, and art festival has become an important sales and exposure opportunity for Houston-area artists. The average total that artists made at WHAM 2013 was $2,031 with 19 artists selling over $2,000, 7 artists selling over $3,000, 9 over $4,000.
WHAM is a juried market featuring 60 local artists representing a wide variety of arts and crafts, including paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, jewelry, clothing and fabric arts, soaps, and other hand-crafted items.
Fresh Arts hosts WHAM to afford local artists the chance to showcase and sell their work to the general public, while simultaneously promoting the breadth and artistry of our city's creative community. Since its launch, WHAM has generated roughly $500,000 for hundreds of local artists and continues to grow as an important venue for Houston artists.
There is no fee to submit for consideration, however selected artists are required to pay
$95 table fee upon acceptance. This fee offsets promotional, merchant services, and event expenditures. Fresh Arts processes all sales.
Artists keep 75% of all sales.
