Call for Artists: 6th Annual ArtWorks: Studio Clearance

January 28
Waukesha, Wisconsin
Presented by: Different by Design/ArtWorks
50 artists
Deadline: October 4

Application Fee: $10/Booth Fee: $115
ArtWorks: Studio Clearance returns for our 6th Annual art show at the Waukesha Expo. January is a slow time of the year for artists in Wisconsin and Illinois.  Here is an opportunity to clean out your
Studio, mark down some of your "older" inventory and put a couple bucks in your pocket. 
The most successful artists at this event are the ones who assign a new/lower price to a piece of art (versus just taking 20% off everything in the booth).  Don't make the customer do the math.  Show the regular price and the new reduced price for a successful day of sales.
  • We will offer free admission coupons for exhibitors to hand prior to the event. 
  • The Waukesha Expo has a new Electronic Reader Board out on the street for even more promotion. 
  • We will be purchasing newspaper ads in the Waukesha, Oconomowoc and Milwaukee markets. 
  • We will have post cards for artists to use. 
  • Listings in event calendars in local media plus social media will be used 

What participants said:
  1. "I was able to move a few older pieces, which was my goal for the fair."
  2. "We have done this show for 5 years now. The crowds are not huge, but they are buyers. We had our best January Sales ever this year. Its great to have extra cash after the holidays"
  3. "By the end of the show, I only had 3 piece left in my booth!"
If you have been accepted into an ArtWorks show in the past 3 years and your work has not changed, the Jury Fee is waived. 
A limited number of artists will have a chance to make an announcement on a special offer during the show.  It could be a limited time offer in your booth or a specific piece at a reduced price, etc.  This opportunity will be limited to artists on a first-come, first-serve basis once your application is approved.  
Our mission: To provide exhibits for artists by artists.
