Calling All Makers!
The Pentucket Arts Foundation (P.A.F.) will be hosting its first “Makers Market” on Sunday, December 15th at Veasey Memorial Park in Groveland, MA.
We are excited about this new event and we are looking for talented artisans to join in. If you are an artist, craftsperson, sewist, potter, jeweler, printmaker, or creator of any other handmade commodity, please read on!
Pentucket Arts Foundation is a non-profit that promotes excellence in the Fine and Performing Arts throughout the Pentucket community with quality visual art, music, dance, and theatre experiences. We believe in the power of the Arts to transform lives and are dedicated to enriching the Pentucket School District through arts education and by creating opportunities to make the Arts more accessible to all Pentucket students and residents.
The “Makers Market” will be a venue for local artists, students and artisans to sell their wares. The market will feature local art, handmade goods, locally sourced products, up-cycled and vintage items and more.
This event goes well with our mission to support local arts and to highlight the many talented “makers” in our communities. We are promoting the concept of “keeping things local” when we can and encouraging recycling, up-cycling and re-purposing items as ways to reduce waste.
Part of this event will feature a pop-up thrift shop that includes quality second-hand clothing and vintage goods. This pop-up will be organized, curated and run by Pentucket students who are members of the Fashion & Fiber Club.
All proceeds from table rentals at the Makers Market will benefit the PAF and will help us to support the arts in our local communities through hosting/promoting cultural events, awarding grants to teachers as well as scholarships for Pentucket students.
We feel confident this event is one that the communities in our area will welcome and support and we look forward to making it an annual event that continues to grow over time.
We hope you will consider reserving a table and joining us on December 15th!
Voices of West Newbury
A heartwarming public art film starring long time residents reflecting on local traditions and lore. This 30 minute documentary debuted at our "Past is Prologue" exhibit earlier this summer.
This past summer, the Pentucket Arts Foundation earned one of a coveted handful of creative partnership grants from the Essex County Community Foundation. ECCF in partnership with the Barr Foundation is funding 11 projects from Lynn to Newburyport as part of the Creative County Initiative (CCI) -- a groundbreaking collaboration designed to elevate the region’s arts and culture sector and support creative expression and the local creative economy.
