Since its launch in 2006, WHAM has generated over $1,000,000 for hundreds of local artists and continues to grow as an important venue for Houston's creative economy.



WHAM is a program of Fresh Arts, a 501(c)3 organization that champions local artists and creative entrepreneurs to succeed in the business of art.

In its mission to provide local artists access to economic development and opportunities to support their professional growth, Fresh Arts (formerly Spacetaker) has hosted the Winter Holiday Art Market (WHAM) annually since 2006.  Fresh Arts personally invites local gallerists, interior designers, boutique and shop owners, and gift shop buyers to WHAM to help foster relationships between participating artists and those entities able to market and sell their work year-round.
