We are coming up on what should have been Open Studios weekend and many will miss that special opportunity to connect with artists. To say this year has been challenging is an understatement. Many local businesses and artists continue to struggle. Although our annual Open Studios Tour is cancelled this year, we can still enjoy art and shop art and, in doing so, support local artists and galleries.
Artstra is proud to support Artists Sunday, an art-focused shopping day celebrating artists and craftspeople while helping them sell more of their work. Think of it like Black Friday or Small Business Saturday but all in support of art!
How to participate:
- Buy from local artists and galleries on November 29. Shop from your favorite local artist or search for something new on the national Artist Sunday Directory. The best part is the adventure of finding something personal and unique.
- Follow the movement on social media. Leading up to Artists Sunday, follow Artstra’s Facebook page where we will be sharing posts from our local artists. Many are holding special events online and in person. Please share your favorite artists with your friends, family and followers. Use the hashtags #ArtistsSunday and #ShopArt on social media.
We hope you’ll join us and the growing community supporting passionate and talented artists on November 29!
