CONYERS — Just in time for holiday gift-giving, the Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts has launched the very first Virtual Artist Market at https://conyersarts.org/shop/.
CRCA has partnered with local artists to bring their artwork straight to the community for safe home shopping. Items include jewelry, wood carvings, paintings, ornaments, holiday décor, fused glass, vintage jewelry framed art and more. The Market will be open until Dec. 11 selling unique gifts created by local artisans. New items can be added to the website until Dec. 3, so check back often to see what’s new.
“Coronavirus may have limited in-person activities, but CRCA is committed to our mission and continues to promote the arts throughout our community,” said Shelli Siebert, executive director of CRCA. “This Virtual Artist Market not only showcases the excellent talent of our local artists to the world, it gives them an opportunity to recover some of the losses from cancelled fairs, festivals and shows from the last eight months.”
Artists whose work is available now are B.J. Crawford, Christopher Saunders, Greta Beech, Jackie Newman, Jessica Gugliotta (The Hoof ‘N Home), Lorraine Harrison (Harrison Vintage Designs), Sandy Daniels (Vintage Praise), and Sharon Matthews (Sharon’s Crafty Caravan). Some of the artists coming soon include Joy Church, Kaela Moscati, Kay Ridge, Kim Walker and Molly Canfield.
Artists who are interested in being included in the Virtual Artist Market can email email@example.com for the application.
