From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 30, the Holland Center, a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing arts, education and community in the Desert Foothills region, will host the 6th Annual Arizona Sage Art Market with 15% of proceeds benefitting the Holland Center’s programming.
Attendees can purchase works of art from a variety of mediums, including painting, jewelry, glass art and more, while meeting the 30 juried artists participating and learning more about their creative processes.
Admission is free to the market, which will be in- and- outdoors to allow room for social distancing. There will also be a pre-Market reception open to the public 4-7 p.m., Jan. 29 at the Holland Center, according to a press release.
By allowing attendees to make a personal connection with the artists, the Arizona Sage Art Market offers a distinctive experience reminiscent of shopping on the Main Street of a small town, “in the days before the internet and big-box stores were the vendors of choice,” detailed the release.
Artists who participate are described as passionate about showcasing their art, explaining their creative processes and getting to know their customers who shop at the Arizona Sage Art Market to not only buy an inanimate work of art but gain “insight into the consciousness of the artist while enjoying a friendly, intimate, unhurried shopping experience,” the release noted.
The Holland Center at 34250 N. 60th Street in Scottsdale is formerly known as the Foothills Community Foundation and strives to enhance quality of life in the Desert Foothills region since 1986, offering an array of programs, including Lifelong Learning classes, fine arts exhibits, performing arts through the Desert Foothills Theater and more.
