Call for Submissions: Barns Art Market, The Wychwood Barns Community Association

Attention Artists, Craftspeople and Designer/Makers
Weekend Exhibition Opportunities  ►  
May 24 – October 4, 2014

The Wychwood Barns Community Association is currently accepting submissions from visual artists, craftspeople, and designer/makers who wish to participate in the Barns Art Market, taking place May 24 – October 4, 2014.

The Barns Art Market will feature 25+ exhibitors once a month over the course of six months. Artists, craftspeople and designer/makers have the opportunity to utilize a 10’ x 10’ booth space for which they need to supply their own structure and/or display equipment. A professional jury will select participants for the Barns Art Market, with consideration to diversity of medium and quality of work being sold. Artists are welcome to participate in a maximum of three (3) market dates in 2014.

This year, in addition to the regular Saturday morning markets, the WBCA will introduce a special evening market on Friday, September 12 from 4-9pm. This special market will feature music, buskers, and a cash bar. All Saturday markets coincide with The Stop’s Farmers’ Market, which attracts about 1000 people to the area every Saturday. Additionally, the May 24 market will coincide with Doors Open Toronto resulting in increased traffic from people visiting the complex for behind the scenes tours. Also, the October 4 market coincides with Nuit Blanche. As the Artscape Wychwood Barns is an official Nuit Blanche venue, there will be increased traffic all day and the market will be included in Artscape’s Nuit Blanche promotional materials.
