Downtown Spokane is tasked with creating an open and vibrant place in the downtown core. Art and the enjoyment of art is essential in showcasing creativity and diversity of community.

This event is designed to:

  • Create a positive image of Downtown Spokane, and enhance the community at large;
  • Support local artists and craftspeople; and
  • Expose adults and children to a wide array of fine art, hand-made crafts, and engaging art education opportunities.


While selling of items is encouraged the primary goal of Art Mart is to showcase artists at work and build collaboration among local artists and crafters. It is preferred that whenever possible participants be creating throughout the event and engage with fellow exhibiters and visitors.

Downtown Spokane cannot guarantee attendance or sales.

All artists are required to submit a deposit of $25 (per artist) to reserve space. Deposits will be refunded following the completion of the Art Mart in September. Vendors who fail to appear on any of their selected dates without 48-hour notice will forfeit their deposit.

Limited power is available on site. Please note any power needs in your application.

    33 Artists Market at the Wonder Building

    33 Artists Market was founded by Gwyn Pevonka, a local Spokane Artist, in November 2022. Pevonka moved to Spokane in the summer of 2021 and saw a need for more opportunities to share her own work and desired to engage the artist community of Spokane.

    “I have always had a passion for the arts and bringing people together and wanted to create my own art market! With over 10 years of experience as a vendor at many markets/festivals/fairs/shows, I believed it was time to start my own. Taking the things I’ve loved from each market and the things I’ve learned over the years to bring this DREAM to a REALITY” -Gwyn Pevonka

    This market celebrates artists of Spokane by providing a market for both professional artists and emerging artists to sell their beautiful, handcrafted work to the people of Spokane.

    The 33 Artists Market will be March 25th 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. inside The Wonder Building in Downtown Spokane.

    This event is free to the public and a family-friendly event. Come out and support your local artists!
