Durham Art Walk Holiday Market - Photos

Just wanted to share a few photos of the recent Durham Art Walk Holiday Market at the Durham Arts Council building, IBM rehearsal hall location.

And also to thank all those behind the scenes who helped put this event together, all the volunteers who helped with setup, breakdown, and "break reliefs"! And a special "Thank You" to our location coordinator, Arthur (The Azul Ocean)!

Didn't catch this vendor's name (she was sharing with Andrea Stephens of Scrapchique) or her cutey-pie pup - she was so well-behaved, no barking and sitting prettily in her bed!

My holiday booth setup - layering green fabric and red tablecloth onto white sheets and lace tablecloth.

The Durham Art Walk Holiday Market is a festive celebration of the arts held in downtown Durham each November, featuring the work of over 200 talented artists in four large downtown venues including the Durham Armory, the Durham Arts Council, Golden Belt and Vega Metals.

Like the Durham Art Walk Spring Market, this event aims to help revitalize downtown Durham by bringing thousands of art lovers for a weekend of art and exploration of all that Durham has to offer. Sip hot cider, enjoy holiday musical performances and great food and find creative, local, handmade gifts for everyone on your holiday list.

Holiday Market visitors can get their purchases gift wrapped by our local nonprofit creative reuse center, The Scrap Exchange. And don’t miss the Burt’s Bees Giving Trees at the Durham Arts Council. See the holiday trees made of recycled materials, donate to the arts and receive a Burt’s Bees ornament filled with artwork or Burt’s Bees products.

This event is free and open to the public. Rain or shine. Take the Bull City Connector on Saturday and on Sunday, free shuttle service is provided. For more information visit or call 919-560-ARTS.

The Durham Art Walk is presented and produced by the Durham Arts Council in collaboration with MANY generous community sponsors.
