Bear on the Square’s juried Artist Market is one of North Georgia’s finest markets of traditional crafts, featuring a remarkable collection of one-of-a-kind, handmade items from the mountain region’s best artists.
Held around the Historic Public Square in Dahlonega, the Artist Marketplace presents juried work from an impressive group of approximately 85 regional artists, including local resident and noted folk artist Billy Roper. Fiber and textiles, folk arts, furniture/woodworking, glass and metal, jewelry, mixed media, drawing and painting, photography, pottery, and jams, jelly, honey, candles, and soaps are almost always represented.
The application for the 2021 Artist Marketplace will be posted here later this year. The deadline is typically at the beginning of February.
