Holiday markets warm our hearts and make us feel festive, so without the traditional public gatherings, we knew we had to find another way to spread holiday cheer and support our local creative communities.

Whether you’re looking for locally made art pieces or gallery space to showcase what you’ve created, we can’t wait for you to join us for the Opus Holiday Makers Market – A Virtual Gallery!

Many artists and artisans count on holiday markets to sell their creations. Without these events, they not only lose out on sales, but they also on the community and warmth that comes from gathering with other creatives. The Opus Holiday Makers Market Gallery is a virtual space on the Opus website where artists, artisans, and crafters can advertise the work they would typically be selling at holiday markets while providing a place for shoppers to find unique and local gifts!

Artists and artisans can post through Instagram by using the hashtag #opusholidaymakers or through the submission form below to share their unique items as well as links to their selling platforms!

If you’re shopping for gifts for this holiday season, take a browse through the gallery and consider shopping local from these talented creatives. For some added holiday joy, we will be drawing submissions from the gallery to highlight on our Instagram page, and on our website through articles. If an artist’s or artisan’s gallery submission is chosen for an article, they will win a $50 Opus gift card!

The giveaway is only open to Canadian residents. Submission will be accepted until December 24th, 2020
