Looking for unique gifts for the holidays? Stop by the JCPA Holiday Splash Art Market to find one-of-a-kind fine arts and handcrafted items for everyone on your list! Artisans will offer everything from fiber art and jewelry to paintings and photography (and much more!). Enjoy light refreshments and live music while you shop! View a complete list of artisans at the end of this post.
In an effort to give back to local artists, JCPA is hosting the art market and waiving the vendor fee for participants. In place of the fee, JCPA has asked artists to donate one item for a silent auction to help raise funds for future public art projects. The silent auction will be held during the JCPA Holiday Splash Art Market, and attendees may bid on these items anytime throughout the event!
No matter what you’re looking for, you’re sure to find great gifts for yourself and others at the JCPA Holiday Splash Art Market. See below for more examples of what you will find there!
The market will coincide with the unveiling of new art in the breezeway between the King’s Centre and the old Massengill’s building (off S. Roan St.). Some of the new art pieces were completed by local high school students. In addition, JCPA will unveil a community art piece that community members have been contributing to throughout the year.
The market will be held in the old JC Penney’s building (309 E. Main St.) in downtown Johnson City. We hope to see you there!
