Who Can Be an Asheville Art in the Park Vendor
A Handmade Market for Professional Artists is Asheville Art in the Park’s slogan and that about sums up who is welcome to vend. If you sell a handmade product to make some or all of your income, we want you at the market. Some media categories hold a more difficult jury then others but all artists are encouraged to apply. The market is a group of local and regional art professionals that work in a wide variety of mediums. Western Carolina’s long heritage recounts the history of craft in our nation and those traditions are echoed in the work of thousands of artists that call this area home. Local and regional painters and two dimensional artists also grace the market with their work selling originals and prints.

Pack Square booth spaces are limited and are available only to Asheville Art in the Park members and regular signup starts March 1st. Active members do not need to re-apply each year. If you have a question about membership status or just have a question about the market, please feel free to email with your query.

Artists interested in becoming a member of the market can apply at any time on the website by submitting 4 images of work and one image of booth display after paying a one time $26 fee.
