EVENT BREAKDOWN (April 25, 2015):


Upon arrival, participants register and pick tickets at random. Number of tickets correspond to number of works submitted. (i.e. If you submitted 5 pieces you will pick 5 tickets.)  

 3:00-4:00 PM  SWAP
Once everyone has picked their tickets, artists locate works with corresponding ticket numbers. Afterward, you may swap amongst yourselves as long as both parties are in agreement. If you receive your own artwork number you can either keep your work or trade.

NOTE: All work submitted is to be exchanged. No monetary value will be applied to the works. All artists must be present for the reception/popswap to participate.

Application fee: $0
