The Urban Artist Market plans a concurrent “Best of Show” juried competition showcased Saturday, June 12, available to exhibitors and non-exhibitors. “We wanted to focus on our core mission,” said Miller. “Providing our artists with the opportunity to sell their work and receive recognition for their talent.” Artists can find details for submitting by visiting our website HERE. More details coming soon.

The prestigious Arts & Culture Texas Magazine will be announcing the winners to their subscribers, and the winners will also be displayed on the Urban Artist Market site. Artist’s reception takes place on June 12 at the Dallas/Addison Marriott Quorum by the Galleria.

One submission will be selected as “Best of Best of Show” and will receive a gift certificate from the Creative Arts Center of Dallas. All works must be original, non-manufactured concepts of the artist.

Jurors include Diana Pollock, Executive Director of the Creative Arts Center; Brett Dyer, Professor of 2D Studio Art, Faculty of North Lake College; and Roberta Masciarelli, Assemblage Artist and curator of Addison Circle Art Center.

“Original art and creative expression build the local economy,” said Producer Christopher J. Miller. “After a challenging 2020, I’m thrilled to be returning the show to Addison, directly on the service road of the North Dallas Tollway at the Belt Line exit.” The Addison show takes place within 15 miles of Frisco, Highland Park, North Dallas, Plano, University Park and Plano.

Attendees will be delighted and amazed by various distinctive, one-of-a-kind creations in 2D painting, ceramics, pottery, mosaic, stained and fused glass, fiber art, print photography, sculpture, jewelry, collage, mixed media, and much, much more.

The Urban Artist Market pivoted in 2020 by providing online gallery space to their artists and expanding both business models. Artists can sell their work 24/7 nationally online and choose to participate in the live shows.
