The Spring Art Market returns on Mother’s Day weekend with 40+ artisans and artists filling the Tannery Arts campus. Produced by Arts Council Santa Cruz County the annual market will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 13th.
The free family-friendly event offers a wide range of activities for the shoppers and art admirers alike. Local artisans will be showcasing and selling their work. Throughout the market you will find handmade ceramics, unique jewelry, paintings and prints, candles, self-care products, one-of-a-kind clothing, and much more.
The Spring Art Market will represent a gorgeous variety of locally made fine art, including painting, woodworking, ceramics, and jewelry. There’s nothing like the beauty of flowers and art to celebrate spring!
