Sipsey Arts Alliance is gearing up for the winter season Art Market and it's just in time for Christmas. We'll have lots of goodies to chose from for extra special gift giving. Some of your favorite artists and crafters will be returning in case you missed out on the Spring Market. It's indoors at the Fayette Civic Center so weather won't be a problem. If you have a special child that needs to remind Santa what's on their wish list be sure to bring them along, Santa will be there. Crafts and jewelry, pottery and art, yummy baked goods and delightful stocking stuffers, oh my! Well, what are you waiting for? Put this on your calendar now and tell your friends too.
The Arts Alliance sponsors a Market twice yearly to showcase local and regional arts and crafts. Support your local artisan industry...buy handmade.
The Sipsey Arts Alliance annual Christmas Market is fast approaching, artists and makers are busy preparing for a wonder filled event this year. This year the market will run for two days, Saturday and Sunday afternoon! All manner of beautiful handmade gifts as well as fine art that will be cherished for years to come will be available for holiday shopping. If you are searching for that special piece of jewelry, pottery, painting or woodwork this will be the place to find it. Come and join us for a festive celebration of the Christmas season. 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.
