5th Annual Holiday Market Extravaganza
Sunday December 21 2014, 11:00am
What do you get when you have over 40 local artists selling their unique original artwork, combined with live music, food, and holiday cheer for the entire family and free of charge? You get our 5th Annual Holiday Art Market Extravaganza at the Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG). You’re bound to be searching for that perfect gift for someone special—and what better place to find it than at MAAG, a creative center for emerging and professional artists in Northwest Philadelphia. On two separate weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, December 6/7 and Dec. 20/21, from noon – 6 PM, MAAG will be hosting this not to be missed weekend of art and celebration.
MAAG will open its doors and offer the community a diverse selection of fine art and handcrafts created by local Northwest artists, both emerging and professional.
Kevin Bennett, Sheila and Debbie Brown, Peter Bruckner, Tina Bruckner, Jackie Clifton, Suzanne Clune, James Hay, Andrea Abrams Herbert, Tom Herbert, Shari Johnson, Sharon Kenny, Gail Lloyd, Lee Muslin, MAAG Quilt Club, Arleen Olshan, Roberto Rashid, Alfredo Ratinoff, Helene Richardson, Kathy Robinson, Liz Rosenberg, Edward Sargent, Patricia Cousins Smith, Sara Steele, Laurel Schwass-Drew, Nettie Scott, Nicki Toizer, and Alex Worcester.
Artists will fill (to the brim) our 5,000 square foot gallery with one-of-a-kind items, for both adults and children, made by woodworkers, sculptors, painters, leather crafters, jewelers, fiber artists and weavers, photographers, ceramic and glass artists, and more.
Plus with free admission, food and drink, as well as live music from local favorites Art Miron, Sad Patrick and Bethlehem, Andy Trackman and Gaille Hunter, Sarah Napolitan, Gerry Whelan, Music In The Moment Improv Ensemble, Gene and Michel Chieffo, and other guests, there’s bound to be something to please every name on your list.
So, stop in at 11 West Mt. Airy Avenue. Bring your family. After all, supporting local artists (in the community you already love) surely beats going to the mall.
