Fresh Arts' aim is to offer a wide array of art, including fine art, crafts, jewelry, etc. at WHAM. The small items are huge sellers (particularly in tough economic times), but we also value higher-end work. Ideally, we strive to have a balance of each.
Over the past few years, the average sale was $45, but there was a healthy distribution of small, inexpensive and high-end items. On the whole, those who were most successful at WHAM offered a wide variety of price points. On average, the 20 top sellers were pretty evenly distributed between painting, prints, fabric arts, and pottery/glass, and jewelry.
The average total that artists made at WHAM 2012 was $1,320 with 19 artists selling over $1,000, 9 artists selling over $2,000, and 2 artists selling over $3,000.
The average total that artists made at WHAM 2011 was $1,188 with 33 artists selling over $1,000, 9 artists selling over $2,000, 3 artists selling over $3,000, and 1 artist selling over $4,000.
