Attention Local Artists & Makers:

The Waxwing represents the collective work of over 350 local and national artists. We give preference to the makers in the Great Lakes Area who are not already widely represented. 

If you are an artist or a make that is interested in being a part of our shop, please read all the information below, carefully. Incorrect submissions will not be considered. We only review work online and can only respond to the work that we are interested in bringing in.

*Please note, we are a small, local shop, so not everyone will get a reply and this is not an opportunity to get feedback on your work. Unfortunately, there are only so many hours in the day.
