We are ecstatic that Handmade City will be taking over a section of Bucktown Center for the Arts for our upcoming April show! Taken straight form their website :
“Bucktown Center for the Arts is made up of over a dozen unique shops and studios where you can purchase creative, affordable, unusual and useable works of art. Visit us at our historic building in Downtown Davenport, Iowa where you’ll find artists creating everything from their next great piece to workshops for both kids and adults.
Bucktown is a component of MidCoast Fine Arts, a leading Quad-City non-profit organization focused on stimulating our community’s cultural and economic vitality through the support of regional visual arts and artists. Founded in July of 2005, Bucktown has played an important role in the continued growth of downtown’s Iowa Cultural and Entertainment District.”
With the creative atmosphere of the Bucktown building and the super cool artists that occupy it’s space we feel this is the perfect spot for our Spring ’12 craft & art fair. HMC will be taking over the third floor of this restored brick warehouse that sits in the heart of beautiful downtown Davenport. Bringing HMC to the Iowa side of the Q.C. for the first time is very exciting and we are looking forward to our shoppers heading across river to experience our unique vendors, live music and the resident Bucktown artist’ studios. The trip will be well worth the drive as this is sure to be our most enjoyable show yet!
We will be posting vendor highlights as the show nears, which will include a specific look at our vendors and the items they offer. Not only will each HMC4 vendor have a vendor highlight but we are happy to also be promoting the Bucktown artists and will be doing a mini highlight on their studios as well! Check back often as we will provide many sneak peeks over the coming weeks!
