You may recall that last summer the Central Wharf was extremely close to landing an artists’ market. Unfortunately there was just not enough time to pull off the initiative, and it was decided to shelve the plan until summer of 2012. As it stands now, the market has been fully approved and will commence this summer. Organizer Julie Leatherbarrow has been working behind the scenes to contact as many artists as possible, and feels that there has been a keen interest in the market.
Although the exact times and dates are not set in stone, Julie is in the midst of compiling a list of all of the artisans who have expressed an interest in showing their wares at the Central Wharf (Canalside). At the same time, she is looking for additional artists in order to make the greatest impact possible. If you are a local painter, sculptor, photographer, etc., and you’re looking for an awesome new venue to showcase your work, please contact Julie so that she can keep you up to date with the details as they unfold.
