The Art Market & Vanstallation

The Art Market is a unique event where selected artists & designer-makers sell beautiful homewares, garden sculpture, jewellery, paintings, fashion, photography and more, direct to the public.

The concept is to have a gallery of stalls, each manned by the artist/maker, showing, selling, receiving commissions and often demonstrating their own unique works.

The Art Market’s aim is to stimulate interest, knowledge and sales of good quality art, craft & design.

The Market is in the centre of Holmfirth, a small creative town in West Yorkshire. The Art Market is run by The Art Market Team small team of artists, for artists and lovers of art.

The benefit for the artist is direct contact with buyers, finding out what the buyer likes about their work, receive commissions, meet lots of other artists and designer/makers and avoidance of gallery commission, all for a very low cost.

The benefit for the public is the chance to ‘meet the maker’, find out about the making process, & the artists inspiration plus buy and commission amazing, unique works directly, missing out the gallery.

Also, it’s a great day out! We have live music, food and drinks and a welcoming atmosphere.

I'll be showing my work at the Art Market in Holmfirth on 7th June.
