The Arts Center to host Holiday Artists Market
ELKINS — The Arts Center once again rings in the holidays with its Great Hall filled with original art works, Christmas ornaments, crafts, and hundreds of other gifts for sale at its sixteenth annual Holiday Artists Market on Dec. 6 and 7.
The Arts Center will be filled with pottery, handmade crafts, fabric art, paintings, baskets, jewelry, and holiday cheer both days, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We really enjoy this time of year at The Arts Center, and the Artists Market gives us a chance to open our doors to the community and offer everyone the chance to do at least a portion of their Christmas shopping from the work of our artist members,” said Arts Center Executive Director Kurt Barkley.
“The Artists Market gives us the opportunity to showcase this fine work. With the number of artists participating this year, it’s going to be an especially good selection of gifts and maybe even some things for yourself.”
Members of The Arts Center will bring their wares to the Great Hall and set up shop for the two-day event.
“Everyone has a great time, the artists as well as the shoppers. We have shopping, music, and snacks. There’s no other shopping experience like this,” said Barkley. “It’s another wonderful way to experience a revitalized downtown Elkins and some of the other new things the city has to offer.”
Even with the number of artist vendors already scheduled for the sale, Barkley said there are a few slots available.
“If you’re an artist member and would like to participate, we encourage you to contact us,” he noted. “If you would like to become a member and join us for the Market, we welcome you. It’s the perfect way to market your art and/or your crafts, and make some money for yourself this holiday season.”
The Arts Center is located on the corner of Randolph Avenue and Park Street, the former St. Brendan’s Catholic Church. Plenty of free parking is available.
