On April 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Holland Center, a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing arts, education and community in the Desert Foothills region, will host the 6th Annual Arizona Sage Art Market. Attendees will be able to purchase works of art from a variety of mediums, including painting, jewelry, glass art and more, while meeting the 30 juried artists participating and learning more about their creative processes. Admission is free to the Market, which will take place both indoors and outdoors to allow plenty of room for social distancing. Fifteen percent of the proceeds will go to The Holland Center to support their programming.
“By allowing attendees to make a personal connection with the artists, the Arizona Sage Art Market offers a distinctive experience reminiscent of shopping on the Main Street of a small town, in the days before the Internet and big-box stores were the vendors of choice,” according to The Holland Center. “The artists who participate are passionate about showcasing their art, explaining their creative processes and getting to know their customers. When people shop at the Arizona Sage Art Market, they are not just buying an inanimate work of art — they are gaining insight into the consciousness of the artist while enjoying a friendly, intimate, unahurried shopping experience.”
The Holland Center is located at 34250 N. 60th Street in Scottsdale. Formerly known as the Foothills Community Foundation (FCF), the Holland Center has been striving to enhance quality of life in the Desert Foothills region since 1986, according to the organization. As part of this mission, the center offers a diverse array of programs, including Lifelong Learning classes, fine arts exhibits, performing arts through the Desert Foothills Theater and more. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Holland Center does not receive any funding from government entities and relies exclusively on the generosity of donors.
