Simply fantastic!

August 17, 2014

There’s always a wonderful flood of incoming submissions that ensues just days before an application deadline; it is so much fun! It’s happy adrenaline feeling, maybe similar to being a kid opening birthday presents. Anyway, this year was no exception — 30% of our 110+ submissions were received within the last four days! We are humbled by how many makers have interest in exhibiting at our market and we want to THANK YOU for your interest!!

The Salty Ladies will be meeting soon to layout the 2014 market and we look forward to posting information about this year’s exhibiting artists and designers in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned!





Application deadline is fast approaching

August 14, 2014

We can’t believe that tomorrow is the last day for makers to submit an application for this year’s market. It seems like we launched our call for just the other day! Gee, summer sure has a funny way of making time fly by, right? We are really happy with the submissions we’ve received thus far, and we are looking forward to seeing what’s to come. Application deadline is FRIDAY, 11:59pm.


Button is PRESSed

We discovered a happy surprise today in the Post-Standard newspaper: “an article featuring a weekly roundup of some of the art happenings taking place in Central New York and opportunities for artists to showcase their talents” by Melinda Johnson, and it included a blurb about the Salt Market!

Each year we invite a different artist to design our promotional materials for the coming market and this year we hired Cayetano Valenzuela of Black Rabbit Studio to create something wonderful. He designed the “Call For…” image that we posted yesterday to coincide with our application launch, and he is currently working on designing the poster and market tote bag. Just like you, we are in the dark on what his poster design will look like and the anticipation is killing us. AHHH — we just can’t wait to see more! Well just the other day to our delight, he posted an image on Instagram (as shown below) and we think we know what it’s for!!!! Thanks for the sneak peak Cayetano. ;)

Here are the many ways you can follow Cayetano, drool all over his work, and then buy some:
