Beginning in November 2012, Arizona artists will have a new place to showcase their skills and their creations, and art lovers have a new place to shop. It's not a ritzy new art gallery. It's the new Artists Alley at the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet.
The flea market as art gallery is one of the most exciting of the current flea market trends. The Mesa Market Place Swap meet is taking that trend to a new level. To encourage and support emerging artists, the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet has designated five spaces as studio space where local artists and artisans can demonstrate their artistic process to shoppers and sell their work. The artists aren't charged for the spaces, which are consecutive booths in the third row.
Artists Alley opens for business on Friday, November 2, and lasts through the end of April 2013.
The Mesa Market Place, including Artists Alley, is open Friday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
