Market offers some unique holiday gifts

November 18, 2016 by  

The annual Native Fine Arts Holiday Market is taking place in Evanston over two days next month.

Items for sale will be handcrafted products created by native artists. These items will probably include jewelry, ceramics, clothing, and decorative accessories.

Artists will be demonstrating traditional art techniques in the Mitchell Museum. The market is free but museum admission is required for the demonstrations. Some of the artists who will be participating this year are Mary Lovato, Judy Jordan, and Robert Wapahi.

The museum also offers several exhibitions and a range of art classes in various techniques throughout the year. During the Christmas holidays, there will be Winter Break DIY All Day Crafts sessions for both adults and youth. Projects will include making a dreamcatcher and learning jewelry craft.

This event may interest those interested in graphic design from the Evanston area.

The Native Fine Arts Holiday Market will be held at the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian from December 3 to 4. The All Day Crafts event is set to take place from December 20 until 30 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM each day. Museum admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children, students, and seniors, and free to all tribal members and members of the museum.
