Calico Makers Market – April 23 & 24
Calico Studio is hosting the third semiannual Calico Makers Market on the weekend of April 23 & 24, 10 AM to 5 PM at 1141 Smith Level Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27516, with free onsite parking. Chatham Artists Guild plays an active role in the Market, with a number of CAG artists manning their own booths, and the hands-on art activities booths staffed by CAG artists. The Emerging Artist Program is co-sponsored by CAG and will have its inaugural booth at the Calico Market. Calico still needs volunteers to help out with the art activity tent and general volunteer roles. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “I want to volunteer” as the subject line, and they will contact you directly. During COVID lockdown all of the art markets were closed, and at the end of 2020, Heather Washburn of Calico Studios decided to create a safe outdoor art market. After communicating with artists in Chatham and Orange Counties, she put together the first Makers Market in the spring of 2021. The upcoming Spring Calico Makers Market will have 24 artists, an art activity tent sponsored by the Chatham Artists Guild, live local music, and lots of activities. Come see the art and have a fun time outdoors. Rain date is April 30 & May 1.
