StG Arts Market

The St. George's Episcopal School Arts Market
October 1, 2022 | 6-9 p.m. | Art for Art's Sake
 
The St. George's Episcopal School Arts Market is an arts celebration held once per year to coincide with Art for Art's Sake, this year falling on Saturday, October 1st. The Arts Market is open to the public from 6 - 9 p.m. and located in the St. George's gymnasium, with frontage and doors facing a popular stretch of Magazine Street. The StG gym was once an open-air market for the town of Jefferson, and our school community is excited to host our first-ever Arts Market in this space, celebrating student and vendor artwork, providing a forum for a well-attended school community gathering and raising funds for the St. George's Creative Arts Department.
