Holiday Market

date: December 14, 2017

Join us on December 16th for locally made arts and crafts, tasty treats, Holiday music, pictures, performances, and much more!

Each year, Mobile Arts Council works with the City of Mobile’s Special Events Department to produce the Market on the Square. The market features one-of-a-kind arts and crafts produced by local artisans, as well as other local vendors featuring baked goods, jams/jellies and honey. 

Snowmazing at Holiday Market & Christmas Kids Day!

Snowmazing will be in Cathedral Square during the Holiday Market on Saturday, December 16 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday, December 17 from noon until 4:00 p.m with Tuba Christmas at 2:00 p.m.

Snowmazing is an inflatable maze with a winter theme. This maze isn’t just about wandering around inside looking for the exit. Adults and children sharpen their navigation skills while competing for the fastest time. When entering the maze, guests receive a passport with their start time. Maze runners must locate checkpoints, punch their passport at each checkpoint and exit the maze as quickly as possible.

Holiday Market in the Park is also in Cathedral Square on December 16 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Finish your last minute shopping with one or more of over 50 vendors. Before leaving, take a family photo in the free photo booth.

Hop on the train that runs between Cathedral and Bienville Squares for more fun.

Bienville Square is home to Christmas Kids Day featuring free activities for children of all ages. Check out Uncle Joe’s Rolling Zoo, Kids Karaoke, Story Time with the Library, Obstacle Course, Slide, Letters to Santa, Balloon Artists, Face Painting, Pictures with Mixen (reindeer), Selfies with Santa and Make and Take Crafts.

Plein air painting by Satomi Atelier

This December, MAC’s Small Room features Plein Air watercolors and sketches by Satomi Atelier. Atelier was born in Hiroshima, Japan. After graduating from high school, she earned a B.A. in Japanese literature and obtained licenses teaching Japanese literature and calligraphy. As a mostly self-taught watercolor artist, Atelier embarked on professional art career in 2008 soon after she moved to America. She started exhibiting publicly through several art organizations located in the Gulf Coast. Over the years, her paintings have been juried into many exhibitions and have been displayed in several galleries.

Atelier mostly works with transparent watercolor, and Plein Air painting (painting on site) is her specialized field. Through Plein Air, the artist would is mesmerized by a scene and then captures it in the moment by quickly painting it. According to Atelier, “Of course we can use the camera to do that now, but expressing something by sketching and painting are a more natural and precious experience to me.”

 Meet the artist during ArtWalk on Friday, December 8th. The exhibition will be available to see from 9 – 5 on weekdays throughout the month of December. We will be closed for the holidays from December 25th – January 1st.
