The gift shop at Georgia’s Rome office of tourism announces a call for artists for the 6th Annual Winter Art Market to be held Saturday, December 2, 2017, 10 a.m-6 p.m. and Sunday, December 3, 2017, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. The art market will take place at the Rome Civic Center. All local and state artists are invited to apply.

Market managers are seeking unique items that display an artist’s talent and personality. All items must be crafted or handmade by the artist. “Our mission is to help promote Georgia artist and make our community aware of all the talent it holds,” said Charlene Mathis, event organizer, and Last Stop Gift Shop Manager. Mathis added that the market is timed perfectly for artists looking to showcase and sell their works in time for the busy, holiday shopping season.

Food, jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography, signs, clothing, woodworking, glass and more are welcome at the Winter Art Market.
