Artist’s can be found scattered throughout our community. However, they are hidden, seeking places where they can share their creations. The Art Market of Menomonie is the solution; a place that gave artists opportunities.
The art market is a place where local artists can bring, present and sell their artwork. Bands and musicians are also welcome to join in on the event.
“We have over 30 artists who attend the art market and over 20 musicians [and] bands,” said Veronika Zazovsky, founder of the Art Market.
Zazovsky started the art market earlier in 2016 and has been growing it ever since. She hopes to soon merge with the local farmer’s market to create a great local showcase.
The many artists are showing their hand-crafted wood work, original printings, paintings, homemade products and knitted clothing and bags. Musicians and bands perform songs in the Wilson Park Amphitheater where guests can sit, listen and take in the great atmosphere.
“Every art market we have continues to bring out a number of bands and musicians, and it’s great to see the variety of artists that come, and the different styles they all have,” added Zazovsky.
The art market has been quite the success so far, attracting over 500 people to each event. Attendees are comprised of not only local residents, but university students as well.
The art market will last for roughly another month, giving the community a chance to get out and experience the fantastic culture of our city. Zazovsky will be working diligently to make sure the art market continues to be a success.
The art market takes place in Wilson Park every Wednesday through October 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
