Art for the People has a duality with the artisan market & exhibition gallery of ~125 Austin Artists. This week’s blog will be an overview of what the artisan market is and then we’ll have additional blogs about the artists over the next few months. The Artisan Market is a plethora of handcrafted items and we are adding new items and artists every month. Each artist brings a different look & energy to Art for the People and having a vast array of each artist’s creations is important to us. We have a diverse selection of locally crafted jewelry, functional & decorative ceramics (which is one of my healthy addictions), prints from artists in gallery exhibitions, photographers & other local artists (quite a vast array), local bath and body products and cards aplenty.

What a superb & glorious opening reception we had for Abstract Absolutely, I See You (photography) & Scene Builders. J Muzacz was extremely generous by gifting 25 prints of each of his Scene Builders’ artworks (2000 Lincoln Town Car & Buick Regal Hard Top) throughout the evening. Billy North of North Fabrication delivered Eutierria (Raw steel base with a natural pecan slab from the bottom of Lake Travis) late Friday morning which completed our installation of Scene Builders.
