DAM! BAM! Art!

I have been remiss in mentioning two arts markets that are not only awesome, but near and dear to my heart in terms of the artists participating and the organization that put them together. It’s yet another thing that makes me proud of our city – not just the events but the folks who create them.

The Distillery Art Market  feature an outdoor market of artists, craftspeople and food artisans at the Distillery Historic District. Come see a wide variety of exhibitors – painting, printmaking, ceramics, fibre art and more!  Open Studios are open from 11am – 6pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tours of Artscape Distillery Studios will take place at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm each day of the market. Tours will meet at the Information Booth located in Case Goods Lane. The Distillery Art Market runs every weekend from April to October.


And should the Distillery be too far downtown for you, you might want to check out its uptown cousin – the Barns Art Market – an exhibition of artists, craftspeople and designer/makers that takes place once a month from May 28 – October 15, 2011 at the Artscape Wychwood Barns. The Barns Art Market coincides with The Stop’s Farmer’s Market, which attracts hundreds of people to the area every Saturday.


Both markets are running this weekend – August 20th and I highly recommend you check them out.


Over and out for today.
