Redbud Artisan Market became an idea in 2017. I wanted to start my own handmade market with selected artists. Fortunately, some of the best artists in the state are in Central Texas, although I have many participating from farther away, too.
I have had the honor of meeting many hundreds of talented artists in the past six years and many of them have joined the show more than a few times. My goal has always been to have a quality show with unique handmade art and a wide variety of art mediums.
Redbud Artisan Market has gained recognition and respect in the community over the past years as one of the higher-quality shows in the state. The success of my artists is the most important aspect of the show. I do my very best to promote each show well and make each event as pleasant an experience as I can for those selling their work. There is nothing easy about participating in an art show. We all know what hard work it is. In comparison, making the art is the easy part!
In 2020, I started an online Redbud Artisan Market Showcase of Artists, with the hope that each artist will be discovered and customers will be sent in their direction. Redbud will not be selling their art, just acting as a collaborative and directing business their way. I hope you will take the time to look at all of the art!
The next Fredericksburg show will be Labor Day Weekend, September 3 & 4, 10-5m at the Marktplatz pavilions on Main St. Free admission, live music both days and Hilmy Cellars pouring wine! Come see us!
