Welcome to ...& Welcome Back to First Saturday Arts Market!

The market is ten years old - and continues its original mission to allow artists to showcase their work directly to the public in a festive atmosphere. I am Mitch Cohen, founder, market manager and artist myself.
Don't just take my word for it, read what artists have to say about this art market click here.
Before you signup, let me tell you who we are. We are artists. We paint, mold, sculpt, pound, hammer, repurpose, sketch, color, thread, sew, melt, bend and generally create from a drive within us that we do not know where it comes from.
If you are an artist, in any medium, you are welcome to register for this curated show.
Design it, create it, sold by you, "BRING IT!"
Show your stuff, baby....the world needs you. People who make things with their hearts and hands are the greatest balm to the soul. The world needs you, Houston needs you, I need you, and you will never regret just throwing your hat in the ring!
— Artist Kiki Neumann
