The Women in the Arts Festival Artist Market features women-made creations, including paintings, illustrations, photography, jewelry, textiles, sculpture, pottery, glassware, edible treats, books, and music. The Festival aims to create a space for women to showcase their talents and sell their work.

Online WITA Artist Resources

For our 2020 virtual festival, we took the Artist market online, offering both a comprehensive resource for shoppers to connect with vendors and an online marketplace that made shopping possible from the comfort of home.  It was so successful, we are continuing this effort for those who want to be able to support independent women artists at any time, and from anywhere!

Get your shopping fix virtually and, more importantly, support these independent artists who offer items such as pottery, glass art, fiber art, paintings and jewelry, personal care products, homemade jellies and jams, books, coffee, women’s music and much more!
