Ooh boy I'm really excited about this one. The IndependentArtMarket was one of my favorite art events last year. This year it will be in a new space, downtown, which sounds even cooler! Here are some details. Please join me!
WHAT An art sale! Work will be available for sale right on the spot, in a wide variety of prices. I had such a good time finding gifts (er, and a few things for myself) here last year! Cash and checks (with ID) accepted. The IndependentArtMarket web site says it better than I can: "The IndependentArtMarket winter sale is an annual event that combines all the warmth of a luxury boutique, all the sophistication of a premium gallery, and the comfort of a friend's home into a single fantastic weekend."
WHEN Friday, December 7, 6:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. Reception Friday evening, details below. Saturday, December 8, Noon - 10:00 p.m. Sunday, December 9, Noon - 6:00 p.m.
Friday Reception: There will be food and drink inside (I recommend bringing cash for this. If there's not a charge, surely donations or tips will be cheerfully accepted.) Outside there will be the Fire and Ice Cream Truck, which is "a souped- up, hot-rod, ice cream firetruck". That's all I know about that truck, but I hear they serve Serendipity ice cream, so that's all I need to know (there will be a charge for ice cream). I can't think of anything that sounds cooler than that. Oh yeah, there will also be live music, and maybe some fire spinners!
WHERE The corner of 10th and Locust in LoftWorks' "Lofts at 315" building, downtown St. Louis. Word on the street (from my parents, who are from the streetz) is that downtown is looking great this time of year, with festive window displays nearby at Macy's. Make a day or an evening of it!
IndependentArtMarket is a St. Louis-based artists cooperative that creates events to showcase the works of top local and international independent artists, artisans and designers. The artists organizing this terrific event are excited about a spectacular weekend filled with a wonderful lineup of new and returning artists, artisans and designers selling work of the highest quality just in time for the holidays. Participating artists work in traditional and non-traditional media with an emphasis on quality. Each studio is self-represented. This December promises the biggest and best IndependentArtMarket holiday sale ever.
Sorry, can't seem to get this looking right on Macs running Safari. Firefox seems to be okay.
