Athens Art Markets
The Athens Art Guild is a group of artisans who not only promote ourselves as a group, but serve our community (the Athens, Ohio area). We are a 501(c)(3) organization. The bulk of our donations go to local school art classrooms, but we fund other arts groups as needed. Find us online at www.athensarguild.org. Some of us sell our work at shows, and vend at our Art Markets held throughout the year. Art Markets are held at the Market on State on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until noon. I participate in most of these during good weather and when I am not participating in another show.
Local Artists Show and Holiday Sale
This will be my first time showing at the Lafayette Hotel Ballroom (located on Front Street) in Marietta, OH. It is a two-day show scheduled for Friday, November 10 from 5 to 9 pm and then again on Saturday, November 11 from 9:30 to 4pm. I am looking forward to showing with 25 other fine artisans.
Home Show at the Church House
November 18, 9 am to 4 pm. In Moxahala, OH. Details forthcoming.
Dairy Barn Holiday Bazaar
Friday, December 1 from 3 to 8 pm and Saturday, December 2 from 10 to 5 pm. This has become one of my favorite shows. On Friday, there are hors d'oevres and a cash bar beginning at 5 pm. The main gallery is filled with festivity. If you don't get out to the Barn much, this will be a wonderful time to check out the big renovations. It truly is a lovely space and it will be filled with folks selling beautiful items for your gift-giving needs.
Athens Art Guild's 10th Annual Holiday Shoppe
Held the second weekend of December, in 2017 this show will take place on Saturday, December 9 from 10 to 5 and Sunday, December 10 from noon to 5 in the Athens Community Center. This show has become a top-notch, looked-forward-to event. We will be back with our penny raffle, which supports area art teachers by purchasing supplies and delivering them directly to the schools. Each artist donates an item, you buy the tickets and it is a win-win-win for all. Come on out and support us!
This year, I may try to have some items that children may purchase for their parents at discounted prices. Any feedback on this issue is welcomed!
Athens Art Guild's Art Market at the Market on State
On Saturday, December 16, 2017 from 9 am to 1 pm, we will have our final show for the holiday season. Just for those last-minute shoppers and folks who procrastinate, we have reserved this show time for you. Stop by the mall and meet us indoors. It's one-stop shopping to find locally-produced goods alongside your typical mall offerings. I'll bet Santa will be there, along with special singers and musicians.
