The Roswell Museum and Pecos Valley Potters Guild invite you to step into a world of creative wonder this holiday season at the third annual Holiday Artisan Market. Held at the Roswell Museum, this opportunity to shop for distinctive, one-of-a-kind gifts will run from November 10 through December 31 and kick off with an opening night party and silent auction on Friday, November 10 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres will be catered by chef Melinda Creamer and an open bar of signature seasonal cocktails, beer and wine will be presented by Pepper’s Grill & Bar to complement the evening. Tickets for the Opening Night are $40 and may be purchased online, in person at the museum during open hours 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, or at the door.
Treasures from 30 artists have been carefully selected to provide a unique, high-quality shopping experience. Fine art and functional items will include ceramics, glass, fiber arts, photography, prints, paintings, jewelry and more. Sale proceeds will be split between the artist and the RMAC Foundation, which helps sustain the regional arts community as well as Museum projects and programs. Proceeds from opening night ticket sales and the silent auction will also support the RMAC Foundation.
The sale and fundraiser will be open to the general public Saturday, November 11 through December 31 and follows museum hours, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and closed November 23-24 and December 24-26. On Saturday, December 9, there will be complementary festive warm beverage bar presented by Stellar Coffee from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and other festivities as part of our annual Holiday Open House.
