The new Emerging Artisans Program provides a low-cost venue and support for emerging artisans, musicians, and craftspeople to display, sell, and demonstrate their handcrafted art/wares. Local, up-and-coming artisans will be drawn from as wide a range of artistic and craft styles and techniques as possible.

Held in The Open Studio Gardens, vendors and attendees will interact in a beautiful, lush setting. The Program will be held on Sundays, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, from December 18, 2016 through April 23, 2017. (There will be no Program on Christmas Day, December 25th or Easter Sunday, April 16th.)

We are seeking program participants on an on-going basis. An application for the Emerging Artisans Program is available below. For more information, please contact:
