The 5th Annual Riverside Art Market is a fundraiser that helps support the Riverside Art Museum’s mission-driven efforts to engage, inspire, and build community through the arts. The Riverside Art Market is free and open to the public, taking up the entire city block with vendors placed within both the Riverside Art Museum and the Riverside Municipal Auditorium.
The setting is a beautiful place for the community to come and enjoy looking at and buying unique arts and crafts. In addition to a fun day of shopping, visitors will enjoy multiple art demonstrations, participatory art projects, musicians, face painters, balloon artists, and the very popular children's craft area–a perfect family-centered day.
With over 100 artist and artisan vendors, gourmet food trucks, and thousands of visitors, the Riverside Art Market is sure to be a lively and welcoming downtown community event.

ITEM to be raffled: A PORTRAIT PAINTED BY HAROLD HART-NIBBRIG.
The 2018 Riverside Art Market is the third time that renowned artist Harold Hart-Nibbrig has agreed to demonstrate the art of portraiture. This year Harold has agreed to paint the portrait either from a live model of your choice during the 2018 Riverside Art Market on April 21, 2018, or from a good quality photograph provided by the winner of the raffle in March. The sitting during the Art Market, if chosen, will take about three hours.
Harold Hart-Nibbrig will provide the winner with an unframed portrait, either at the Riverside Art Market if the winner chose the photo option, or sometime after the Riverside Art Market if the live model option was chosen.
This beautiful unframed portrait is sure to become a lasting treasure.
Tickets are $20 each or 6 for $100.
Winner will be drawn on March 15, 2018, at the Art Alliance’s General Meeting.
The winner does not need to be present at the time of the drawing.
