About the Alameda Summer Art Fair & Maker Market
The Alameda Art Fair and Maker Market serves to bring Alameda and Bay Area artists together with the greater community. We create a very inexpensive way for local artists to expose their work to adults and children in Alameda. Artists are encouraged to create artwork during the fair, so the attendees can see artists in action. This helps support a vibrant and creative community.
Who we are:
The Alameda Summer Art Fair is organized by ARTPUSH, Alameda Artists Group, and Studio 23 Gallery.
ARTPUSH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to promote and support the arts and artists through programs and events that enhance and strengthen the community.
All proceeds from the fair go to ARTPUSH.
The Alameda artists group is an organization composed of over 2000 local artists and run by local artists. We host monthly events including the 2nd Friday Alameda Art Walk, monthly figure drawing classes, and periodic sketch, drawing and painting meetups. We also offer workshops and special classes. All of our classes and events are open to the public and all are welcome.
Studio 23 Gallery
Studio 23 is a community gallery space that opens once a month to the public. We have regular group shows that feature local Alameda and Bay Area artists. We also hold classes and workshops and special events. We help bring emerging artists into the public, and connect the public with the local arts community.
2022 marks the 6th annual Summer Art Fair. The first five years both had approximately 500-700 attendees, and about 100 participating local artists and musicians. We are currently supported by FLAX art supplies, who is our title sponsor. We are seeking to expand our support so we can increase our promotion and bring more visitors to this great free event.
The Art Fair Live Stage Sponsor is Alameda Municipal Power, AMP.
This event is promoted heavily in Alameda and the surrounding areas. We run an extensive print campaign that distributes thousands of printed event invites to over 100 locations. We also distribute several hundred small posters and about 200 jumbo posters. We also have a very extensive online promotion program. Our Facebook event get’s thousands of invites, tens of thousands of views and several hundred RSVPs.
