Art Squared Arts Market

The town of San Marcos holds an art market called Art Squared Arts Market every second Saturday of the month from March to December. I volunteer every month since I found out about it after the Labor Day floods. It supports local artists and brings culture to the community. It’s in the town square around the gorgeous court house.

Each month has different artists, some are regulars, some are passing through town, some are new trying out the market for the first time. The farmer’s market is next door with food and flowers. There’s always live music, dogs are welcome, and everyone has tons of fun!

The business cards are works of art too!

Some artists will design work for you. The woman, July, is talking to this artist about designing a piece for her.

The work varies quite a bit. There’s clothing, jewelry, paintings, drawings, sculpture, furniture, and more.

Dan’s bird feeders were a hit. I should’ve bought one!!
