Objects of Desire (Holiday Marketplace) — Call for Vendors Open!

December 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Call to Vendors and Applications Now Open!
Just in time for the holidays, The Gladstone Hotel and curator Uma Vespaziani are pleased to present the second iteration of Objects of Desire! This one-day art market will feature a carefully selected group at the intersections of art, design, craft, and fashion who play with the idea of functionality through object-making. Blurring the boundary between artwork and object, these vendors demonstrate a unique balance between aesthetics and utility.

Our monthly marketplace is connected to our cultural programming strategy. And one of the ways that we strive to grow our community of creatives and innovators and connect them to each other and to our guests. Each GH Marketplace is themed and collaboratively created working with independent curators or in partnership with cultural and community groups.
