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 three-day affair, kicking off with an exclusive "Ugly Sweater" themed Preview Party and Happy Hour on Friday, November 17th from 6:00 to 10:00pm.  and resuming on Saturday, November 18th at 10:00am until 7:00pm and Sunday, November 19th from 11:00am to 5:00pm.  

The WHAM Preview Party on Friday costs $15 online and $25 at the door (FREE for Fresh Arts members), while Saturday and Sunday are free and open to the public. Patrons may shop while enjoying DJs and live music, enjoy free beverages while supplies last, and food for sale by local vendors. All work is available to take home the day of sale.

 "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.

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

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. 

Fresh Arts 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.
