On FEBRUARY 7TH, Art House is hosting a Wesleyan artists’ fair.
Whether you have two zines or twenty paintings that you would like to contribute, we would love to present your work. Our hope is that artists will gain exposure and connect with others on campus.
contact Rachel Day at rday[at]wesleyan[dot]edu (or any other Art House resident) by FEBRUARY 3RD to submit.
please include descriptions and the amount of your work – anything will be accepted, whether it’s figure drawings, photographs, socks, postcards, etc etc.
Art work and crafts will be for sale – this does not necessarily mean monetary, however. Artists will set their own prices; whether their drawing sells for $10, two dinners, a print in return, or any other form of trade is up to them.
Full House will be providing refreshments, Music House will be providing live music, so come and hang! The event will run from 1-5 pm on Saturday, February 7th.
A percentage of each sale, proceeds from the refreshments, and a “pay what you want” at-the-door fee will all be donated to Green Street Art Center in Middletown.

If you are a Wesleyan DJ hoping to get some neat publicity both on and off campus, the Center for the Arts (CFA) has a great opportunity lined up for you:
The CFA is hosting a DJ competition for Wesleyan students as part of the MiddletownRemix project, a collaborative, place-based sound project that enables participants to develop and express the acoustic identity of Middletown and to explore and experience the soundscapes of the city. Selected students will be commissioned $200 dollars to perform on May 11th at a festival in the North End to celebrate Middletown and the collaborative project.
The competition will have two phases, and the deadline for Phase One is March 31st. Applicants must complete Phase One in order to proceed to Phase Two. More information on the application after the jump.
