NEW! 2020 SUMMER SOLSTICE ARTISANS' MARKET
A signature community event, the Durango Arts Center’s Winter Solstice Artisans’ Market is a much anticipated destination for holiday shopping amongst locals and visitors and so we’ve decided to mirror the event for the 2020 summer solstice. This Summer Solstice Artisans Market will offer artists and craftspeople a unique opportunity to sell work through DAC in a 4-week long professional market setting, with DAC providing marketing to its members and the community at-large. DAC retains 40% commission of artist sales, which serves to support the costs of the market and the dynamic, year-round exhibition program that welcomes over 8300 visitors annually.
WHO IS IN CHARGE OF SUMMER SOLSTICE?
Tiffany Jacot, DAC Art Space Director, email@example.com or (970) 259-2606 Ext. 12.
