The Art Market - the very best art, design and contemporary craft for sale and commission direct from the artists to venues in Yorkshire - returns to York’s Knavesmire this September.
To celebrate and introduce you to some of the artists, here is the first in our new series Meet The Maker showcasing the first of the market’s artists, Helaina Sharpley, who creates magnificent wire art as an extension of the 2D drawings that originate her work. As Helaina explains in the film, her art all stems from a tea obsession…
Future artists in our regular series, running all the way up to the exhibition weekend event, include ceramicist James Oughtibridge and sculptor Jim Bond: all of the artists we’ve filmed are uniquely fascinating creative artists working in a variety of media.
The Art Market, which runs from 30 September to 2 October, encourages you to come along and meet the makers and buy & commission direct from these award-winning artists, whose work has enjoyed acclaim and exhibitions nationwide. There is also a lively cafe area, live music, interactive areas, workshops & demonstrations.
As well as the big York weekend, The Art Market run one day events in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, every June & November.
