The Urban Artist Market is an indoor curated show taking place on May 8-9 in Addison, Texas, that features artisans in a variety of disciplines selling their original work.

The mission of the Urban Artist Market is to provide a professional, stylish and pleasing environment where artists can successfully sell their work. The secondary goal of the market is to encourage diversity and inclusion in the marketplace by raising funds for arts programs.

Artists chosen to participate in the market will have the opportunity to submit two pieces of their work for consideration in our juried Best of Show exhibit that takes place in the lobby throughout the event. Artists will also have the opportunity to donate one piece of work for our silent auction taking place throughout the weekend that raises funds for a local arts educational scholarship program.

The Urban Artist Market is a revenue-generating marketplace for cash and carry purchases and potential wholesale order writing. We feature highly-skilled artisans from a variety of creative disciplines to create an incredible show floor experience.

Town of Addison Partnership

The Town of Addison Tourism Department has put their support behind the Urban Artist Market. Addison will advertise this event throughout their city media channels including their website, social media, city e-newsletter and calendar of events. Everyone has heard of Addison’s Oktoberfest, KaboomTown and Vitruvian Lights events because Addison is known for putting on a good show. The Urban Artist Market will join these ranks as we plan to attract hundreds of visitors throughout the weekend; all getting a chance to see your art and make on-site purchases. We will also be hanging a banner across Beltline near the Tollway which introduces the show to thousands of drivers starting two weeks before the event.
