Deadline: August 1
In November, when it's cold in most of the country and the festival season is winding down, the Winnsboro Fine Art Market offers a great opportunity for Christmas art sales--a perfect way to conclude your art fair season.
The second Winnsboro Fine Art Market will take place November 5th and 6th in historic downtown Winnsboro, Texas. Streets will be closed to traffic and transformed into an art buyer's Mecca. The first Art Market was so successful that every exhibiting artist expressed an interest in returning.
The area surrounding the town's restored train depot will feature continuous musical entertainment, a wine garden and a wide variety of fine food. Children's activities and demonstrations by participating artists will provide a great experience for everyone.
For those unfamiliar with Texas, the "Upper East Side" is heavily wooded with numerous lakes, making it a relaxing retreat for harried urbanites wanting a little slower pace and a lot friendlier atmosphere. Daytime temperatures in early November are in the 60's and 70's and the leaves are at their autumn best. Winnsboro's small town charm and friendly people complete the atmosphere.
A short drive from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, second homes dot the seven lakes within a 12 mile radius of Winnsboro and the City draws tourists to a variety of restaurants and live music venues. Winnsboro is a MainStreetCity and a Certified Retirement Community. While the country is experiencing a downturn in the economy, Texas is holding its own and people are still buying art.
The Winnsboro Fine Art Market will be strongly promoted in Dallas, Fort Worth, Tyler, Longview and surrounding cities and is expected to garner a substantial turnout of patrons wanting an enjoyable weekend in the country.
The weekend kicks off with a Patrons' Reception held on Friday evening featuring fine dining, wine and entertainment.
To make the weekend relaxing for exhibiting artists as well, event promoters have made arrangements with a nearby retreat for the use of their newest addition-a lodge overlooking the woods with private rooms and baths for $49 a night-the perfect chance to relax and mingle with other artists in the common area of the lodge.
We hope you'll join us this fall for a profitable and enjoyable weekend in East Texas. For more information please visit our website at www.winnsboroart.com or call 903-342-3438.
