After two wildly successful online shows in 2020, the Affordable Arts Festival will hold a second Holiday show. The Black Friday of art sales, the Affordable Arts Festival will be open for “virtual” business on Friday & Saturday, November 19 & 20. With more than 60 artists from around the state and the country and all of the art priced at $100 or less, this is a great opportunity to give some amazing gifts this holiday season.
Most of the thousands of pieces available were originally priced much higher, but for the show the prices are reduced.
There are several pieces of art that were initially priced at $5,000 but on November 19 & 20, they will be $100!
This is a great opportunity to buy wonderful art for your gift list and saving so much that you can get something for yourself, too.
How it works:
Patrons will pay $12 (that’s the same price as the summer outdoor festival) to get into a special website which will go live on November 19 at 8 a.m. It’s a good idea to get tickets early since you will receive emails with tips and info about the event. Use the promo code HOLIDAY and receive $1 off your ticket.
Once you have paid, you’ll receive a secret link to a special page that will start working at 8 a.m. on Friday, November 19.
Once on the site you will see the artists in their different categories (2D, Glass, Jewelry, etc.) and each artist will have 3 samples of their work.
When you find an artist you like you can click on the button for more info. This will tell you how you can purchase from the artist.
When you are done shopping with that artist you can return to the site and find more art and artists.
All art is $100 or less, with most artists offering to ship items, though some will deliver or will allow pickup at their studios.
The sale will last through 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 20.
The proceeds from the admission fee will once again go to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation. Over the last several years the Festival has raised close to $200,000 for scholarships.
