Alexandria Art Market opening day tomorrow, Saturday, May 7th

From the Facebook page:

Del Ray Artisans (DRA) announces its 2nd season of The Alexandria Art Market. The market will be held in the Nicholas A. Colasanto Park, adjoining the Del Ray Artisans gallery at 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA (corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Mount Vernon Avenue). This is a rain or shine event and is free and open to the public.

A variety of original artwork from over 25 artists will be displayed for sale including, but not limited to, painting, photography, pottery, jewelry, and glasswork.

The grand opening festivities for the 2nd season will be on May 7, 2011 will include music by The Kate Moran Band!

Market Creator and Coordinator Kimberley Bush is so pleased that last year’s art market was so successful that she was able to add an additional month which is May and increased the number of artists. She continues to believe that the DRA artists and artisans would benefit from consistent exposure to the art world. This event will be another opportunity and a perfect venue to connect with the community.

The market will be held on the 1st Saturdays of May, June, July, August, September and November, 2011 in the Nicholas A. Colasanto Park on the corner of Commonwealth and Mount Vernon Avenues from 10-4pm rain or shine.
