building character: arts market

Several months ago I blogged about all the cool stuff going on at Building Character in Lancaster. And now the guys at BC are doing even bigger and better things. This Friday, December 5, Lancaster will have its monthly First Friday celebration and Building Character will be unveiling its new artMARKET. This new area is just the latest addition to BC, focusing on the visual arts, with a space for music: the artMARKET Assembly. That area will provide space for live music, rehearsals, recording, performance art, or whatever you can think of. 

Building Character is located on the 300 Block of North Queen Street in Lancaster and is a wildly popular destination for First Fridays, as well as being at the center of the city's Music Friday program (the third Friday of every month). They also host a Sunday Market featuring music, art, food, and more. Always something going on at Building Character!

Congrats to Tony and Marty for this great new facility. If you are an artist or artisan, the artMARKET is an inexpensive way to show off your work in a great location. From merely hanging a piece on the wall to renting out one of the "art stalls," there is something for everyone. And it will be open seven days a week. 

I'll be checking out the artMARKET at First Friday this week and hope to see you there! I'll most likely be one of the folks wearing an "I Heart XPN" pin, as usual.
