2015 KIAC Annual Report - Page 18

Art Market A third season of Dawson’s Artist Market ran in the summer of 2015, taking place on Saturdays from June 20th through September 5th. Originally arising from the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in’s Regional Economic Development Plan, the weekly marketplace of arts and crafts is a popular fixture on the Dawson City waterfront and we are seeing increased participation each year – this year 20 artists participated over 10 markets . Featuring diverse and unique wares by local artists, offerings this year ranged from pottery to jewelry and from printmaking to painting. All marketplace activities are coordinated by volunteers, and with an increased number of artists participating in 2015, hopes are the market will continue to gain momentum each year. 18 DAWSON CITY ARTS SOCIETY
