This year the market will run for two days, Saturday and Sunday afternoon!

We'll have joyful music to set the mood and Santa will be making a special appearance just for the little ones.

Sipsey Arts Alliance has been plugging along for a little over two years now making some amazing strides and absorbing some amazing setbacks too. We have our non-profit status! We have a powerful group of artists and volunteers! We're getting really good at dreaming big and starting small! Three huge pluses. Welcome to the new web presence. Yep, it has a long way to go. Expect to see some of the artists on the artist page real soon, listings for classes too.
Right now admin is comprised entirely of volunteers putting their shiniest, best foot forward. Many of us are working artists taking valuable time away from our easels and wheels and writing desks to make this endeavor happen.
Our spring Market is this weekend! April 16th in the Fayette Civic Center/Art Museum from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Just in time for a special gift for Mom. Hope to see you there!
Several alliance members are also in the middle of moving their studios and showplaces to a beautiful new location. Scotty Porter of Sterling Bridges Antiques in historic downtown Fayette has provided space for them to work and display their items all year long. Another member is soon to open a studio space in a nifty old service station, also in historic downtown Fayette, thanks to the efforts of local builder/developer Jerry Odell. The buildings have progressed since these pictures were taken. It will be delightful to show you the after pictures.
