Sugar Magnolia Cafe

Greetings Wake Forest Art Guild Members, 
As you may know, we display local artist artwork at Sugar Magnolia Cafe’ & Emporium on a commission basis in our cafe’, dining room, Emporium Enterance and on the Emporium walls. We’re finding that shoppers are looking for smaller pieces and most pieces that sell are under $100.00. The purpose of hanging local art is to show and sell your art, so we are looking for a few new artists to bring in about 4 pieces, with wires or saw tooth hooks to be hung and sold at Sugar Magnolia with a 25% consignment fee.
We are expanding our “workshop” space for teaching classes in order to give a place for more local artists or groups to use. If you are also looking for a working space to work, display, sell and teach from, we are rearranging an can accommodate 2-3 artists and also have opportunity for co-op. There is pop up space during all the street events and rental space to artisans also. 
We have been enjoying meeting so many artists, musicians, and community leaders and are continuing to talk to our visitors to see what people are looking for. Making great efforts to give people “entertainment” downtown and preparing for its growth with all the new building and shops going in. 
Please email with photos and links if you are interested in showing your work, teaching classes, or renting a space.
