Art Market is a marketplace for local artists who have a passion to share their talents with the community. It was first held in May, 1994, offering the Salt Lake community access to affordable arts and crafts.
At each Art Market, the best and most creative local artisans are invited to showcase their unique, funky, whimsical, hard-to-find, and always hand-made merchandise at this seasonally themed event. Art Market began as a once-yearly event, run out of Nanette’s home, but it has grown into five events during the year, all held at the Sugarhouse Garden Center. Each of the five shows — February, April, October, November, and December — are stocked with pieces that reflect the show’s theme.
The one-of-a-kind, hand-made Arts and Crafts include: jewelry, candles, original paintings, fine art prints, stationery, frames, pillows, holiday décor, clothing, stained glass, ornamental iron, pottery, baked goods and other unique creations.
Who operates Art Market?
Utah native Nanette Banks Amis, modeled Art Market after the famed Pike Place Market in Seattle, minus the fish throwing and monger odor. Nanette networks through the Utah artist community in search of new vendors who share her passion for unique, hand-made arts and crafts.
Nanette enjoys reading, skiing, hiking, sewing, knitting, cooking, hosting parties, biking, and collecting art, dishes, and handbags. She lives in Salt Lake City with her husband Jeff, four kids, two bunnies, and one cat, who are always coming and going.
