Hallmarket: A Hallmark Art Fair Celebrates Creativity Public art show featuring the personal work of Hallmark employees set for Sept. 28

KANSAS CITY, Mo – Back for its 4th year, “Hallmarket: A Hallmark Art Fair” will showcase the creative talents of Hallmark employees. The art fair will be held Saturday, September 28, 2013 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., at Crown Center on the Hallmark Square in front of the Hallmark Visitors Center and Kaleidoscope.

More than 100 Hallmark employees who are photographers, sculptors, designers, photo stylists and graphic artists along with others will display and offer their personal art work for sale. A wide array of artwork will be available including textiles, turned wooden bowls, sculptures, art quilts, jewelry, oil and watercolor paintings, and photography. These pieces are the personal work of the participants, created outside of their jobs with Hallmark.

Hallmarket is a chance for creative excitement and rejuvenation for all. Many Hallmarket participants are Hallmark artists who enjoy the opportunity to create art that is not their designated style or media at work. Other participants are not employed as artists but create outstanding pieces from their own outpouring of creativity. Hallmarket is a chance for everyone to experience the creative passion that flows through the Hallmark community whether is it purchasing a piece of art, watching an art demonstration, or connecting personally with so many creative and fascinating people.
