Lawrence ArtWalk 1996-2013
An annual artists’ open studios event featuring the visual artists of Douglas County, Ks that was started in 1995. It takes place in and around Lawrence, Ks and is usually held on the weekend before Halloween. John Wysocki co-organized the event with fellow artist Sarah Oblinger in 1996-97 and organized the event until 2013. Since 2004 Wysocki organized the event under the Artful Marketing banner.

Sydenham Arts Festival 2010-2011
An exciting and relatively new annual visual and performing arts festival that is held in Sydenham, London, UK and was started in 2009 as a grassroots community-oriented festival. Although not an Artful Marketing event, president John Wysocki volunteered his assistance with the festival in several capacities while visiting the UK. For Sydenham Arts Festival 2010, his roles included copy-editor, assistant fundraiser and online administrator [PDF of brochure]; and designer of an interim blog site until the festival’s main site was created. For Sydenham Arts Festival 2011, he developed the festival’s planning timeline.

Lawrence ArtMarket 2005 & 2007
A monthly art fair held between May-September in Lawrence, Ks at the Lawrence Visitor Center, which occupies a former Union Pacific Depot building. The event was created by Artful Marketing’s president, John Wysocki, and featured fine artists and artisans from within a 50-mile radius of Lawrence, including Kansas City, Mo.

Lawrence Bridal Show 2005
An annual consumer trade-show held on January 30, 2005 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Lawrence, Ks. The event was taken over by Artful Marketing from its previous organizer, KLWN, Lawrence and showcased the services of wedding professionals from within a 50-mile radius of Lawrence. A unique feature of the show was its promenade-style fashion parades, which were conceived by Artful Marketing’s president, John Wysocki, after participating as a wedding photography exhibitor himself at many regional bridal fairs.
