WELCOME TO THE ART FAIR GALLERY!

We are creating this community to make connections between those who love to shop for unique things and the artists who create them. A community of artists, makers, organizers and shoppers. A place to find a specific artist or find a local fair to shop at this weekend. 

Join, shop, list and let’s support our local artists!

Artists and Makers

There are two different memberships, one is free one has a low monthly fee of $12. You can read about your different options when you click the link to join.

Shoppers and Patrons

To help you shop, we have created an artist directory, a virtual shop as well as a calendar of events to find a local art or craft fair near you. Click on the events tab to search for one. Our event listing is growing daily. Check back frequently for an event near you.

ArtPrize® is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place all throughout downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. It celebrates artists working in all mediums from anywhere in the world, and is open to any creative with an artwork to enter and a venue willing to host it.

For 18 days, the work of 1000+ artists will be exhibited in over 130 venues throughout the city in public parks and museums, in galleries and vacant storefronts, in bars and on bridges. ArtPrize awards $450,000 directly to artists, through grants to support their ambitious work and through prizes which the public decides through the ArtPrize mobile app.

Artwork will be available for purchase through our online auction platform or direct purchase from the artists. There are no seller fees associated with our platform, guaranteeing all proceeds go directly to the artists. More details on purchasing artwork will be found at our website ArtPrize.org in the weeks prior to and throughout the event.
