The Second Annual Hudgens Artist Market will take place this year on Friday and Saturday, November 4th and 5th. Over thirty instructors and artists from the Fine Arts School at the Hudgens, as well as other area artists, will sell their creations in this very special Education Department fundraiser. There is no admission fee to attend.
On sale will be hundreds of original art works, including paintings, pottery, 2D artwork, jewelry, photography and textiles. This is a great chance to purchase one-of-a-kind works of art for yourself or for holiday gifts, while supporting the arts and artists in Gwinnett. The Artist Market will also include an amazing silent auction featuring art and other unique items, donated by area artists and outside organizations.
The Artist Market will be open on Friday for an Evening Preview Sale from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Visitors can shop early at the many artists’ booths, and start the bidding on the silent auction. Bidders do not have to be present on Saturday to win.
The Market will continue on Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. “I think people are very thoughtful about how they spend their money these days, and we are thrilled to be able to give people the opportunity to buy something that was handmade by someone in their own community,” states Angela Nichols, Director of Education and Programming at the Hudgens.
Artists participating in the sale include: Charlotte Allen, Janelle Benson, Lynn Banks, Beth Fallaize, Gerry Grimes, Michelle Harrison, William Heerman, Nancy Highfill, Jill Jones, Linda Lindeborg, Jacqueline Mitchell, Connie Norman, Kelly Haggard Olson, Cindy Perryman, Cynthia Prince, Cho Rhee, Virginia Sanford, Bree Sauers, Jane Scott, LuAnne Tackett Simpson, Elizabeth Stallings, Kathy Wallace and Michelle Williams-Peterson.
Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to ‘buy local,’ and support area art and artists.
