Let’s Help Individual Artists Thrive!
Skip Black Friday. Shop Artists Sunday!
 
 
Artists Sunday is an arts-focused shopping day the first Sunday after Thanksgiving, the largest shopping weekend of the year! The goal is simple: to help artists sell more of their work during the fall holiday season and to help shoppers find unique, personal and hand-made gifts for their loved ones!
 
Planted squarely in the midst of the largest holiday shopping weekend of the year, Artists Sunday aims to make the Sunday after Thanksgiving the arts’ most profitable day annually, boosting sales for creators of art, crafts and handmade items while encouraging consumers to purchase art as holiday gifts.
  
Artists Sunday encompasses a full spectrum of the arts from painting, sculpture, and photography to clothing, jewelry, pottery, and a range of handcrafted items that can be both practical and beautiful. Artists Sunday is also free for artists creating experiential works of art (think dance, music and theater) Types of Artists? View a non-exhaustive list.
