Spacetaker is pleased to announce the 5th Annual Winter Holiday Art Market (WHAM), a weekend art sale and celebration of Houston's talented and diverse artists, this November 19 - 21 at Winter Street Studios.  The juried Winter Holiday Market offers a wide variety of arts and crafts -- including paintings, sculpture, and photography, as well as jewelry, clothing and soaps -- providing an excellent opportunity to purchase unique, hand-made holiday gifts. The IKEA lounge provides shoppers a place to rest their feet and feel at home while they observe a special student exhibition by the Teen Council of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. The Friday-night WHAM Preview costs $10 ($5 for Spacetaker members), while the remainder of the weekend is free and open to the public. 


A special exhibition, sale and art festival in one, WHAM will feature art, demonstrations, and performances of more than 60 local artists of all disciplines. WHAM is a 3-day affair, kicking off with an exclusive Preview on Friday, November 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and resuming on Saturday, November 20th at 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m and Sunday., November 21st  from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  Patrons may shop while enjoying DJs and live music, complimentary beverages, and an array of food vendors from local restaurants.  All work is available to take home the day of sale.


Friday night's Preview Party includes live entertainment by DJ Smooth Operator, an Open Bar, and light bites including bacon caramel popcorn from Beaver's, nachos from El Patio, international gourmet goodness from Phoenicia Specialty Foods, and some sweet treats by the Kitchen Incubator chefs!


On Saturday, November 20th, Spacetaker will host a private Vendor Breakfast.  In line with Spacetaker's mission, the Vendor Breakfast will offer a special opportunity to foster ongoing relationships between participating artists and those entities able to market and sell their work year-round.  Local gallerists, interior designers, boutique and shop-owners are welcome. An invitation to the reception is required for access and interested parties are welcome to email wham@spacetaker.org to request an invitation.


Spacetaker hosts WHAM to afford local artists the chance to showcase and sell their work to the general public, while simultaneously promoting the breadth and artistry of our city's creative community. Since its launch, WHAM has generated more than $166,000 for more than 200 local artists and continues to grow as an important venue for Houston artists.
