Sometimes the best thing I can create as an artist, is traffic for other artists. Find a new favorite maker and give the gift of this holiday season!
Move Over Black Friday, Artists Sunday is November 28
The Sunday after Thanksgiving, is Artists Sunday, the day to shop with local artists, creators, and makers. More than 550 communities and 4,200 artists, makers, and art organizations are participating in the nationwide art-shopping movement, now in its second year. Artists Sunday is sandwiched this weekend between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday® and Cyber Monday. Artists Sunday unites artists and communities across the country, all promoting purchases from local artisans.
A gift of art makes a heartfelt connection with friends and loved ones, while supporting local artists and boosting the local economy. You can shop from a full range of art, hand-crafted items, experiences, and performances that are practical, beautiful and inspiring.
Visit the Artists Sunday Online Directory and search for artists by location and the types of craft.
