The Berkeley Arts Council’s fourth annual Holiday Art and Craft Market will open early at 10AM for Black Friday at it’s new location at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg. The hours of the Market are Thursday 12-5, Friday, 12-8, Saturday 12-5, and Sunday 12-3.

Including the regular members of the “Artists at The Works” co-op group, the Holiday Market has expanded to 28 local and regional artists and artisans, who offer a wide range of artwork and creative gift items.

The Holiday Art and Craft Market was started four years ago to provide local artists and artisans a venue to show and sell their work. Although a portion of the sales proceeds will go to support the Arts Council and the Art Works gallery, the majority of the sales proceeds will be cycled back into the local economy through the artists whose work is sold.

The Berkeley Art Works, a project of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans.
