Artists' Market

A juried exhibition highlighting artists who create and execute original, professional quality work.


Artists' Market

Location: Mount Royal Avenue from Mosher Street to North Charles Street

The Artists’ Market is a juried exhibition highlighting artists who create and execute original, professional quality work.  Festival-goers are invited to view and purchase art from more than 100 vendors, selected from nearly 400 applicants.

The Emerging Artist Program supports artists participating in their first outdoor art show.  Selected Emerging Artists are paired with established artists working in the same medium to answer questions about exhibiting and offer advice on maximizing sales, booth design and art pricing. The program also provides a space in the Artists Market, free of cost. 

Amy Boone-McCreesh
creates multi-media artwork that addresses the clash between handmade and technical processes and challenges notions of visual taste. A decorative and maximal aesthetic often fuels her visual vocabulary. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design (2007) and a Masters of Fine Arts from Towson University in Maryland (2010). Amy completed a two-year fellowship for emerging artists with Hamiltonian Gallery in Washington DC (2014), where she exhibited and was included in Scope, Miami and (e)merge DC art fairs (2012,2013). Her work has also been included in exhibitions across the country including a site-specific installation at Mixed Greens (NY, New York, 2015), Transmitter Gallery (Brooklyn, NY, 2015), Transformer Gallery (Washington DC (2015), Dickinson College visiting artist and exhibition (Carlisle, PA 2015), and completed a collaborative site- specific public installation at School 33 in Baltimore, MD (2014) funded by the Rauschenberg Foundation Grant awarded to the non-profit. Recent collections include the Department of State, U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico (Art in Embassies, 2013). Recent publications and features include New American Paintings (issues 106 and 118) and Handmade Life, published by Thames and Hudson (2016). Amy spent 2016/17 as a visiting assistant professor at Dickinson College and is currently adjunct faculty at MICA and Towson University.

Sherry Insley is a Baltimore based artist, metal smith, part-time photographer, full time parent, semi-serious writer, sort of retired educator, wistful mermaid, and lover of canines. She is a BFA graduate from UMBC, and received her MFA from MICA. A recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award and several arts related scholarships and grants. When she is not in the studio working with metal and fire, she can be found walking too many dogs at once to fund her salt water passions. Her work can be found at and followed @sherryinsleydesigns.
