International Folk Art Market Collection Returns to Dallas

DALLAS-Artists and artisan groups from 18 countries will showcase one-of-a- kind artworks reflective of their traditional cultures during the  International Folk Art Market Collection June 19-23,  a featured part of the Dallas Temp Show. This is the third year the collection has been presented during the summer Market and will be located on the World Trade Center, first floor.

The artists will travel to Dallas from Afghanistan, Chile, Ecuador, Namibia, Pakistan, Peru, Spain, Swaziland and other countries before heading to the annual International Folk Art Market - Santa Fe, one of the largest international folk art markets in the world. The artisans will showcase traditional handmade work including embroidered textiles, basketry, ceramics, beaded jewelry, painted wood objects, tie-dye scarves, hand woven silks, clothing and more. Many of their traditions have been passed down from generation-to-generation and help sustain their families and communities.

"The Collection is one of our most celebrated market events," said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. "Everyone looks forward to seeing the artists showing one-of-a-kind handmade products and hearing their heartwarming stories. It's an intercultural exchange and unique shopping opportunity for our buyers."
