Each spring for over four decades, the Quinlan hosts a fine art auction. The event is sold out every year. In order to balance the calendar and as a response to popular demand, the UniQue Artisan Craft Market was born. This fun fall event is now in its second year. For three days only, the Q opens the doors for a special group of artists and artisans showing only the finest of fine craft.
A community nonprofit committed to promoting the arts and working artists, this market is a multi-day event with some sales proceeds going to support community outreach and engagement. UniQue is a juried fine craft show of only the most select artisan wood turns, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, mixed media, glass, wearables, bags and much more. Artists will be showcased in a market setting with opportunities to meet the artists as well as other hands-on activities. Market open September 28th -29th, 10-4, and Sunday September 30th from 1-4., with the last day of craft market and “make-and-take” activities and demonstrations available.
