Artists Collective | Spartanburg is getting ready for the holiday season by planning a Holiday Artisan Market for Nov.3 – Dec. 26.  The intention is to provide a safe space for locals to shop for unique holiday gifts over a longer-than-usual time frame – Nov. 3 – Dec. 26.  The event will take place primarily in the largest of the Collective’s three galleries, The Solomon Gallery, and will feature a wide variety of works made by 37 of the collective’s member artists.  The market will be open for shopping Tuesday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 4p.m. at no cost. (closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas)

Items on display and for sale will include watercolor, oil, acrylic, and mixed media paintings, sculpture,  and photographs, as well as smaller items such as: pottery, jewelry, fused glass, hand-woven neck-ware, miniatures, holiday cards, and ornaments.  Price points will range from a few dollars to a few thousand – (many items are very affordably priced) with something for everyone.  The two other galleries, retail areas and many of the artist studios will also be open for viewing.

The participating artists are Chuck Bishop, Wadette Cantrell, Roderice Cardell, Rachel Child, Amanda Compton, Patrick DeCrane, Craig Denesha, Addam Duncan, Marcy Fedalei, Alana Hall, Tyler Hill, Jason Huffman, Thomas Keonig, Elliott Leader, John Lever, Judy Martin, Janis McElligott, Rosemary McLeod, Sydney McMath, Amy Moris, Nancy O’Dell-Keim, Erin O’Neal, Karin Patrick, Ruza Pocivavsek, Chuck Reback, Beth Regula, David Sawyer, Shelley Sperka, Carol Story, Jonathan Swift, Brandi Tucker, Jim Weber, Sally Weber,  Joan Wheatley, Nancy Williamson, Barbie Workman, and Patty Wright.
