The Art Market is growing!
Since our start in August 2017, we have worked with 47 creative entrepreneurs. We have highlighted the best in emerging and established artists from around the Midwest. In 2019, The Art Market is growing to increase our impact on emerging artists and makers. We have added a third market, The Art Market: Spring Edition, The Art Market at Taste of the Arts is expanding to include over forty artists this year, and The Art Market: Winter Edition is expanding to Punch Films, an expansive warehouse space with great potential to host many more artists, food and drink, and live music. As we expand, we want to help you grow, too! We will soon be adding an educational series to our market platform to share information on how to grow your business, market your work, and more. We have big plans and we can't wait to share them with you.
We are different from most markets out there.
Our markets are thoughtfully curated featuring well-crafted goods for everyday life. We consider your products, booth, and price point when selecting artists. In the marketplace, we position like-minded artists side-by-side to promote collaboration, networking, and sales from booth to booth. Find all of our past participating artists here.
Unlike most markets, we have an extraordinary staff and volunteer team providing outstanding artist support throughout the process of applying, unloading, and throughout the event. We are here to support you and ensure you have the best experience possible.
$10 application. $120 booth. Similarly curated markets around the Midwest cost a lot and are a big investment for emerging artists. We keep our market fees low to support emerging and established small businesses grow. We now offer a discounted booth rate for Artlink members. Become a member today.
The Art Market is the perfect place to grow your customer base and mailing list. We attract serious shoppers on the lookout for unique goods. We market your work to ensure our customers become familiar with your brand before the show!
The Art Market: Winter Edition has an average attendance of over 900 buyers.
The Art Market Pop-Up at Taste of the Arts is our only outdoor market of the year. Taste of the Arts celebrates and supports the rich diversity of arts and cultural experiences in our vibrant community. The festival is open to all, providing access to art without cost, with an average yearly attendance of over 25,000 attendees.
