Frederick Artist Market Scheduled for March 5th

March 1, 2011

Approximately twenty artists will be participating in the next Frederick Artist Market, scheduled for Saturday, March 5th from 5:00-9:00 p.m. This indoor art and craft event, held at the Cultural Arts Center, is free and open to public. All items at the Frederick Artist Market are produced by the participating artists. Examples of items available include, but are not limited to, paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, wood-carved instruments, and other art pieces.

The Frederick Artist Market has been a great addition to Frederick’s Arts and Entertainment District. Artists participating in the event may qualify for various tax advantages, as one of the requirements for such benefits is the artwork must be created and sold within the geographic boundaries. Downtown Frederick is one of nineteen arts and entertainment districts designated by the State of Maryland.

The Frederick Artist Market is a program of the Frederick Arts Council and occurs five times throughout the year. The event will take a brief hiatus until the fall, as the next one isn’t scheduled until October. The Cultural Arts Center is located at 15 North Market Street in downtown Frederick.
