New things are happening, and being sold, at the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach (CCPVB.) As part of its mission to bring arts into the community and to support local artists, this local nonprofit arts center and gallery has increased opportunities for artists to sell their works by expanding The Market. Open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., The Market is an informal exhibition space includes not only original paintings, but less traditional art forms as well.
Featured works include painted ceramics by Caroline Forbis, original paintings by Marlene Scheer and Bonnie Yales, wood-mounted prints by Erika Romanczuk, hand-sewn purses by Jan Youngs and CLS Designs, and more.
"Each artist brings something so unique to The Market," said Sara M. Bass, exhibition and communications manager. "It has been great to be able to introduce more people to their works."
A driving force behind the expansion of The Market is CCPVB volunteer Sharon Warner.
"Sharon has been a great help," said  Bass. "She sourced many of the items, donated the shelves and even worked the space during a special event. She really made The Market a fun and welcoming space."
The Cultural Center, located at 50 Executive Way in Ponte Vedra Beach, is accepting applications from artists who would like to sell their works in The Market. Email sbass@ccpvb.org for more information.
