    The Artist Market features artists’ booths offering wares and art for sale from ceramics, jewelry, paintings and sculpture to photography, and fiber arts. Alumni and student clubs are encouraged to participate. Exhibiting applicants artworks are adjudicated based on technical ability, originality of the art, and quality of the booth display. Judging and awards for “Best Booth” are held on the date of the event. The winner receives a trophy and will be offered a free booth space the following year.
