The Work of Our Hands Artists' Market

   

 

The Work of Our Hands Artists’ Market is scheduled Nov. 21- 24 at the Cathedral of St. Philip located at 2744 Peachtree Road, Atlanta. This acclaimed market features over 80 local and regional artists offering fine art, folk art, and crafts, including paintings, glass, fabric and wood art, pottery, jewelry, sculptures, and many other handmade and original gifts in a variety of price ranges.  

An opening night reception is planned Thursday, Nov. 21, from 6:00 - 8:00.  Tickets, available at the door, are $15 per person.  Hors d’oeuvres, wine, and other beverages will be served. 

Admission to the market on Friday, Nov. 21,  through Sunday, Nov. 24, is free and open to the public.  Hours are Friday and Saturday 9:00-5:00 and Sunday 8:30-1:30. 


The Work of Our Hands is a non-profit organization founded in 2000 by the Rt. Rev. Frank K. Allan, eighth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta.  A passionate believer in the spiritual benefits of rediscovering one’s imagination and creative gifts, Bishop Allan sought to build an organization to support art-oriented programs throughout the metro Atlanta area.  He and his wife, Elizabeth, conceived and developed the Artists' Market as a major source of funding for art programs as well as a showcase for the creative spirit that crosses all boundaries and walks of life.

Proceeds from the market benefit organizations that promote and support arts and crafts programs that serve persons marginalized by socioeconomic, mental health, and intellectual challenges.  Recent grant recipients include Emmaus House (www.emmaushouse.org ), which serves underprivileged individuals and families in the Peoplestown community and Holy Comforter Friendship Center (www.holycomforter.episcopalatlanta.org ), which serves people with mental and physical disabilities in East Atlanta.
