Sounds & Sights Festival Art Market is an indie arts and crafts fair coinciding with a variety of festivities and attractions associated with the Chelsea Sounds & Sights Festival which begins the evening of Thursday July 25th with Art Market running Friday and Saturday, July 26th and 27th, 12pm – 8pm. The two day, three night festival draws over 15,000 visitors annually and features national and regional live music acts, local food and brew, a sculpture walk and activities for the entire family.
“This year more than ever, we are seeking unique exhibitors to freshen, edge and hip-up the Art Market,” said Patty Schwarz, Art Market Program Coordinator and Director of River Gallery + Exhibits. “Helen Gotlib and Dylan Strzynski are assisting the Art Market committee this year and we are really excited about their young energy and fresh ideas. Both are full time working artists who make their living doing art fairs, so their perspective has been really important.”
The Art Market is a juried event limited to 30 local and regional arts and crafts people of exceptional quality. Artists willing to demonstrate their processes are also highly sought. Booth fee is $100 for the weekend. Demonstrating artists participate for the reduced rate of $50.
