Special art market showcases women makers

September 27, 2017 by  

The Makers Mart Arts and Craft Fair is taking place over two days next month in Washington, D. C.

This is a temporary pop-up market that will be showcasing handcrafted art and merchandise that has been created by local female artists. Items expected to be offered for sale will likely include handmade jewelry, prints, paintings, home decoration, and clothing accessories.

Admission to the market gives visitors access to the collection at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Current exhibits showing at the museum include ‘Wonder Women!’ which features images of powerful women, real and fictional, and closes on November 17. ‘Inside the Dinner Party Studio’ offers archives, film, and printed documents up until January 5, and ‘Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today’ covers over 20 African American women artists including Alma Woodsey from October 13 until January 21, 2018.

The market, and the museum itself, give attention to women artists. No doubt it will attract visitors of all sexes from the Washington, D. C. area. To spread the word, organizers might invest in poster printing services.

The Makers Mart Arts and Craft Faire will be held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts from October 29 to 30. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. Call 202-783-5000 to learn more.
