On Saturday Sept. 20, the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market plans to host “Art at The Market,” a showcase of local fine artists and their work. The date was chosen to coincide with Artprize as this event is not always accessible to artists from the Market’s neighborhoods or neighbors living nearby. Also, the neighborhood does have quite a few accomplished artists in its midst. Art at The Market will provide them an opportunity to showcase their talents, inspire their neighbors and share any messages that their art expresses. Artists already involved in Artprize are welcome, too! It’s simple to get involved! Simply email [email protected] to sign up!

Successful fine artist Derrick Hollowell has shown his work at the Market during its grand opening summer celebrations the past two years. "The market is a real way for an artist to connect with the Community,” he says. “The casual atmosphere leads to personal conversations about an artist’s methods and motivation. It is a great way to find new collectors for your work, great vibe."

Hollowell’s beautiful paintings have been on display at HopCat, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital and Metro Health Hospital as well as in private collections. 

The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays at Gerald R Ford Academic Center through November 8. The market warmly welcomes SNAP/EBT, Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) and WIC & Sr. ProjectFresh as well as cash and debit cards
