8th Annual Winter Holiday Art Market | Fresh Arts, November 22-23, 2013

Over the last decade, WHAM has become a citywide tradition, bringing together Houston’s small business, local artists and people of all ages to kick off the holiday season. One of Houston's largest juried art markets featuring exclusively local artists, WHAM offers a unique mix of fine art and handmade crafts -- including paintings, sculpture, and photography, as well as jewelry, clothing, and soaps--from 65+ emerging and established independent artists of all disciplines. 

WHAM also offers artist demonstrations, live music performances, free beverages, and food for sale by local vendors. 



Since its launch in 2006, WHAM has generated over $1,000,000 for hundreds of local artists.



This year, WHAM will bring together Houston's most talented local artists and kick off the holiday season with an exclusive "Ugly Sweater" themed Preview Party and Happy Hour on Friday, November 16th from 6:00 to 10:00pm, and resumes on Saturday, November 17th at 11:00am until 8:00pm and Sunday, November 18th from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

ABOUT WHAM 


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. 

Fresh Arts has hosted WHAM annually since 2006 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. 

In line with Fresh Arts' mission, 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. 


 "Everyone's on the "buy local" bandwagon and big box stores are taking a hit. In this economy, I think people would prefer to support the little guy who needs it the most, rather than corporations. Certainly, since I started my own business, I've become much more aware of the concept of 'spend it here, keep it here' in terms of buying locally. And in Houston, it's easy to support local artists because there are so many amazing talents to choose from!" -says Ann Westby, jeweler and multi-year participant in WHAM."
