Station North will debut a weekend arts market in April, spotlighting the Baltimore neighborhood’s creative community and inviting artists to share their work with the public.
The Station North Arts Market will be open on weekends through September from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., on the fenced lot at the corner of Howard and 20th streets near Graffiti Alley, according to its co-producer Caprece Jackson-Garrett. It will feature an array of clothing and accessory designers, fiber artists, canvas art, live installations, family-friendly programming and food vendors.
“What we want to do is celebrate revenue-generating opportunities for artists and the arts community,” said Jackson-Garrett, who is working with Kevin Brown, co-owner of cafe Nancy by SNAC, to coordinate the market. “We are a community, and so by doing this we get to really share talent that would not otherwise be presented for public consumption, because a lot of the talent is underground.”
Vendors can solidify a one-day spot at the market for $25 or a full weekend for $35. Making the event affordable was paramount, according to Jackson-Garrett, owner of marketing firm Bonneau Caprece Agency.
It will “shine literally a very fashionable light on Baltimore,” she said.
