Kick off the holiday season and support regional artisans at the annual Winter Market, December 6-8, in the completely renovated Umbrella Arts Center, in historic Concord Center
This bustling marketplace has work from more than 75 creative vendors -- everything from handmade ceramics, forged and beaded jewelry and blown glass to unique woven scarves, photography and art prints, ornaments and wood-turned treasures. A cherished Concord tradition, the Market brings holiday shoppers together with The Umbrella's skilled studio artists, faculty and students, joined by acclaimed guest artists from throughout Greater Boston. Get all your holiday shopping done in one, fun swoop by buying handmade holiday gifts directly from regional artists.
Works by participating artists will be on display throughout the three-floor renovated space, and the annual "Off the Wall" small-works show in the freshly built new atrium Main Art Gallery will feature purchasable artworks smaller than 14" x 14" x 14" and priced under $300, just the right size to be a gift for yourself or someone special. When you fall in love with one of these pieces you can buy it right off the wall!
This year's Market will also include live music, local food vendors, and a wider range of hands-on family friendly activities in The Umbrella's new arts classrooms and Makerspace labs, as well as opportunities to visit new theater facilities where The Umbrella Stage Company, Greater Boston's newest professional theater, will be presenting the musical, Tuck Everlasting.
The Umbrella Winter Market is free, open to the public and full of good cheer – so bring a friend and #DiscoverYourArts!
The Umbrella is easily accessible by Route 2's Walden exit, 2 blocks from Fitchburg rail line stop, and offers free parking.
