The Art Market Returns To Raleigh’s Wide Open Bluegrass Festival

We are thrilled to have such a talented array of artists and craftsmen at this year’s Art Market at Wide Open Bluegrass 2017! The list of participating artists is below, along with examples of their work and links to their sites.

The WOB art market is an intimate showcase, designed to recognize North Carolina’s talented and enthusiastic art community and feature unique artisans from across the United States. Local makers, and those who sell works that will appeal to a music-loving audience are encouraged. The World of Bluegrass event will attract over 6,000 national and international traditional music performers, presenters, and fans — in addition to over 75,000 local attendees anticipated for the two-day Wide Open Bluegrass festival.

We look forward to seeing all of these artists for the weekend of September 30th through October 1st, between the Martin Street and Hargett Street block in Downtown Raleigh, as apart of Wide Open Bluegrass 2017.
