Illumination: Art in the Market

Illumination: Art in the Market

Posted January 9, 2017


In the coldest depths of winter, we're bringing light, color and fun to the month of January by illuminating the artists whose creations contribute to the dazzling vibrancy of the Market community, year round. With more than 220 working artists, along with two dozen art galleries and shops, there's days of art to explore! 

Get a glimpse of the depth and breadth of art on display and meet the artists, through video portraits. Discover the galleries and find artsts at work in their studios with handy, downloadable pocket guides.

Join us for an exciting evening of art and conversation on January 26, when artists Clare Dohna and John Fleming provide a sneak peak to their upcoming public artworks, Northwest Microcosm and Western Tapestry. Both works will be installed in the Market this spring. Event Info
