Second Annual Open House and Art Market at 33 Hawley Street

Public Invited to Second Annual Open House and Art Market at 33 Hawley Street



Northampton, MA—After a rousing success last year, Arts Night Out and the Northampton Community Arts Trust host another festive Open House and Art Market on Friday evening, December 12, 5-8 pm at 33 Hawley Street. The market continues on Saturday, December 13, 10 am-3 pm.


The public is invited to browse and buy work displayed by participating artists while viewing the building, currently in transition from fitness center to affordable creative space for the community. The latest architectural renderings of the project are also on display.

All sales are cash and carry, with 10 percent of the proceeds donated to the Northampton Community Arts Trust. The informal Friday evening event features light refreshments, a wine bar, and music by Mando Paradiso. Archguitar Peter Blanchette joins on both Friday and Saturday.
