On March 18-19, the Holland Center, a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing arts, education and community in the Desert Foothills region, will host the 7th Annual Arizona Sage Art Market. Offering a unique “Main Street” shopping experience, this free-admission event will feature over 40 juried artists representing a wide variety of mediums, including painting, jewelry, glass art, and more. The Market will take place from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day, with both indoor and outdoor booths at the Holland Center, located at 34250 N. 60th Street in Scottsdale.
By allowing attendees to make a personal connection with the artists, the Arizona Sage Art Market is 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. 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, unhurried shopping experience, according to the Holland Center.
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. 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.
