Art For The Holidays fills the gallery, and December has just begun – a perfect time to reflect on what a special year it has been for everyone at the Detroit Artists Market. Art has never been a more active and more important part of our community than it is now. Just in the past year we’ve seen attendance increase, more people participating in arts events, new artists getting involved, and growing numbers of people collecting more art. Education groups from elementary school students to senior tours make sure to add DAM to their itineraries. Visitors come to Detroit from around the world to see first‐hand the creative energy here, and they come to Detroit Artists Market as part of that unique experience.
This year we added more opportunities for artists and audiences alike. Our Elements Gallery got a facelift and offers even more original art to collect and for gifts throughout the year. We added a Featured Artist wall to further showcase emerging talent. In February we started Third Thursdays with our neighboring galleries and Art Detroit Now, offering evening gallery hours and special musical and food guests each month. Our Circle of Art members take quarterly tours of private collections and studios, and our Gallery Talks attract a broad audience interested to know more about the artists anartworks in each exhibition. Our schedule ahead is full of even more to offer artists and audiences!
With so much planned for the upcoming year, we need everyone’s support to bring the best of Detroit art to the public. We want you on our growing list of DAM members and donors who are leading the way to provide more opportunities for local artists and develop supportive audiences. Please make a difference now in support of our mission – with your charitable contribution to the Detroit Artists Market Annual Fund.
Your contribution to DAM’s Annual Fund goes to work right away to produce our full schedule of quality engaging exhibitions. DAM exhibitions and special events provide hundreds of Detroit area artists the opportunity to show and sell their work each year, and give emerging and established artists the visibility and audiences they deserve. Your gift also works to engage audiences and increase their understanding and passion for Detroit’s creative spirit. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, DAM relies on the generosity of people like yourself to make this all possible.
Please take this moment to make your commitment to DAM and to supporting local art:
Thank you once again for your generous support of the Detroit Artists Market. We wish you the best of the holiday season!
With warm regards,
Nancy L. Sizer, Director
