Event Summary

Founded in 1998, the 21st annual Wesleyan Artist Market will be held on April 25 through April 27, 2019.  The Market is a hallmark event at our school, drawing thousands of guests including school families, alumni, and community members from the surrounding area.  More than 95 professional artists will be selected to participate in this event, in addition to more than 20 Wesleyan student artists.  We are thrilled to showcase both established professional and emerging student artists in our bustling market setting.
The Mission of the Student Artist program is to celebrate the talent, inspiration and energy of our current Wesleyan student artists.  We hope to provide emerging student artists with the opportunity to participate in a professional setting. They will experience the process of entering their work for submission, preparing their work (if chosen), marketing and displaying their work for sale, and engaging with patrons.  Through this process, students will gain understanding and appreciation for the art industry and for community.
With this great opportunity, comes responsibility.  Students should fully understand and appreciate that it is both an honor and a privilege to be selected to participate along side our professional artist guests.  Like all members of the Wesleyan family, students are there to support the overall mission of the Artist Market and the well being of our professional artists while they are on our campus....

General Information
We are excited to announce that our Student Artists (or their booth sitter/"guest") will have access to the Artist Hospitality suite in the Concession area of the Market.

  • Do I have to apply through ZAPPLICATION? 
​Yes.  The Wesleyan Artist Market (WAM) moved to an on-line application process in 2015 in an effort to streamline, standardize and simplify the application and jurying process. 
  • Once I have uploaded my application via ZAPPLICATION, does that mean I have completed everything required for the Wesleyan Artist Market?
No.  For students, we require five (5) samples of your art work for jurors to view.  These must be left in the Fine Arts office along with the Sample Submission Form which needs to be signed by your parents.  Their signature acknowledges your participation in the event.  Once you apply, the SSF will be emailed to you to print, sign and drop off with your samples.  This all needs to be completed by the deadline date of December 1, 2017.   
  • But I've applied via mail/drop off in the past? ​​
Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications outside of ZAPPLICATION.  Applications received through the mail or dropped off at school require special handling and can be easily overlooked and lost in the shuffle.  We do not want that to happen to any of our applying artists.  Thank you in advance for applying only through ZAPPLICATION.  If technical issues arise with ZAPP while trying to apply, please contact ZAPP directly at contactzapp@westaf.org, or 303.629.1166. (MST)  Should you still have questions, please contact us at info@wesleyanartistmarket.org.   
  • SInce I have applied in the past via ZAPP, is it okay for me to submit the same pictures I used last year or in previous years?  
We ask that you provide new and updated photos, reflecting your most current work and style.  For jurying and promotional purposes, this is the best way to determine what you will be selling at our Market.  Your photos should be representative of the work you are producing now and plan on bringing to our event.  
  • May I apply for a booth with another artist?
​Only individual artists or two-person collaborative artists are permitted to submit an application and share a booth.  Artists presenting separate works (non-collaborative) may not submit an appliation together or share a booth.  
  • My photo's will not upload.  What do I do?
We have a team dedicated to the artist application process.  Please contact ZAPP directly at the Help Center at contactzapp@westaf.org, or 303.629.1166 (MST) with any technical issues as it relates to photos.  If you are unable to reach a resolution, please contact us at info@wesleyanartistmarket.org (applications) with any inquiries.  We will get back with you as quickly as possible.   We are working closely with ZAPP to make sure the process goes even more smoothly for 2018 applications.  
  • May I submit photos taken from my cell phone?  
Please submit five (5) high-resolution photos, including one booth shot (use of a DSLR camera is recommended for the hightest photo quality).  As a last resort, iPhone 6 or 6+ images typically will upload successfully. 
  • What happens if I miss the deadline for applications?  
All late applying artists will be added to our wait pool for consideration should a spot become available.  Selected wait pool artists can be contacted up until one day prior to the event date.  
  • What if I cannot participate in the Market after I have been confirmed?
We always regret losing an exhibiting artist but understand if there are mitigating circumstances.  Please let us know as timely as possible if you know you cannot participate in April. 
  • If I am a student food artist, should I apply through ZAPPLICATION? ​
If you are a current Wesleyan student interested in participating in the Wesleyan Artist Market and have a food item you would like to sell, please apply online.  We do not allow any outside food sales inside our Market, aside from our own current Wesleyan student bakers, due to food licensing restrictions.
