CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT THE 59TH ANNUAL HOLIDAY ARTS FESTIVAL

What is the Online Arts & Crafts Hub? The Arts & Crafts Hub is an online space for Bay Area artists and makers to share and/or sell their work during the holiday season. It is a retail space for promoting arts and crafts, but it is more than that too! Artists and makers are invited to create their own listings in this non-juried space. New/recent/past work, holiday specials, mini-exhibitions, community events showcasing artwork, project links, posters for change, messages for peace… it’s all welcome!

How will the Hub be promoted? During the holiday season, Richmond Art Center will be promoting the Hub via online and print advertising, social media, our e-newsletter, via community partnerships, and at community events.

What does the Hub look like? All artists who register receive a listing in the Hub Directory (organized by media) and an Individual Artist Webpage to share their work. Click here to view a sample listing
