What began in a space upstairs at the old Farmers’ Market building in 2003, relocated with the grand opening of the new Flint Farmers’ Market facility in 2014.
“It is the only outlet for art that I have in Flint,
so it is an important one for me.”
Cheryl Jordan, Potter & Scarf Maker
Located near d’Vine Wines and kitty-corner from Vietnamese eatery, MaMang, Art at the Market Gallery features the works of between 30-35 local artists, many of which have long histories in Flint. The originating members are long-time Flint artists, many of whom have stayed involved in Flint, and include retired community art teachers.
“We have a fantastic group here. People come and go, but it is always a good group of artists. We are very happy to be in the Market.”
Ellan Phaneuf, Jewelry Artist and Vice President
The artists are chosen to exhibit through a juried process – artists submit photos of their work and the jury, comprised of many of the artist members, meet monthly to choose new exhibitors. Every artist chosen to display also agrees to work 20 shifts a year in the gallery. That means every time you visit Art at the Market, one of the exhibiting artists is there.
“It is a good, fun way to support local artists!”
Norah Fisher, Photographer
Art at the Market Gallery is an opportunity for local artists to show their work and contribute to Flint’s art community. Currently, they are looking for a few more three-dimensional artists. Applications are available in the gallery, which is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am-6pm and Saturday from 8am-5pm.
“Art at the Market brings art to the community –
we touch a lot of people by keeping art accessible,
and we often run into our former students!”
Bob Harvey, Photographer and Treasurer
