The Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN) is pleased to announce a call for MARN CREATIVE and CREATIVE BUSINESS Members to sell small works on consignment in the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB. Memberships must be in good standing before the call closes to qualify. 

The MARN MARKETPLACE is a curated retail art market located within the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB on 191 N Broadway, Suite #102. The initiative strives to support MARN Members as a consignment platform for small works & artisan goods. MARN seeks artists residing in Southeast Wisconsin with collections and limited editions of small works, artisan goods, prints, zines, publications, and more to be sold in-person at the MARN MARKETPLACE and online on marnarts.org. Examples of goods to sell include but are not limited to jewelry, postcards, apparel, hand-made objects, plushies, home décor, ceramics, zines, publications, stickers, and small prints. 

Selected artists have had success in the past with items such as prints, stickers, greeting cards, and other small handmade items priced from $4 – $50. Jewelry that has a strong and consistent brand aesthetic, prints and posters that are packaged professionally, and items that have informational tags attached to artwork have consistently sold more work. MARN recommends items are no larger than 15” x 15” x 15” each; exceptions may be considered for nontraditional pieces. MARN also recommends that the Artist submit a work with variety and not repeatable work (single themes and items with no real difference in colors, styles, and sizes).  Click here to see examples of previous MARN MARKETPLACE items.
