CALL for Artisans in Action ~ Nova Scotian artists and artisans


A collaboration between Avon River Arts and Avon River Heritage, Artisans in Action returns with a series of pop-up markets designed to showcase Nova Scotian artists and artisans who focus on historical trades, crafts, and art forms done in both traditional and contemporary manners.

Taking place in the rustic Avon Spirit Shipyard in Avondale/Newport Landing, nestled along the shore of the mighty Avon River, these open air markets are an opportunity for artists and artisans to engage an audience by presenting a window into their creative process, while also offering their products for sale.

Artisans in Action takes place the first Sunday of the month, June – October, noon until 4pm.The cost to participate is $25 per artisan, per market (discounted rates for those participating in multiple dates). Artists and artisans are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Tables, chairs, access to electricity and refreshments are provided.
