What People are Saying About Artists Sunday

The American Craft Council is proud to be a partner of Artists Sunday. The promotion of Artists Sunday helped increase our sales by 5x the normal amount for the American Craft Council online gift marketplace called Craft Bash that runs through December 6 and features handmade products from nearly 100 artists. We appreciate the support that the initiative had for artists and we look forward to growing the movement to shop on Artists Sunday to show your support for artists again next year.

“Artists Sunday is tucked in between the big box Black Friday and Cyber Monday to create a meaningful opportunity on the meaningful day. As a shopper, you can buy something handmade that has purpose – the kind of gift that can fill a home much better than something mass produced in a far-away factory.”

"Colorado is proud to be a part of this nationwide effort to support the creative class. Artists Sunday is a great way to support local artists, celebrate creativity and find unique, meaningful gifts for everyone who appreciates the arts.”

“Artists Sunday is a great platform to help artists while also getting consumers focused on how art can make a unique and wonderful gift. But while it centers on one day in November, the benefits for artists becoming part of this network are year-round. Artists Sunday is providing so many great resources and tools that help artists navigate the business side of being an artist. It’s something that is desperately needed at a time in which a lot of artists are struggling.”

"As a visual artist I’m grateful for Artists Sunday’s Promotion ability and enthusiasm. I spend a lot of time marketing and responding to artists’ calls. It’s exciting that Artists Sunday makes my work visible far and wide, and I’m relieved to have this great tool to help me get the word out there. Even as a new organization it’s done so much already to let the world know what we artists offer and they’ve done it professionally! Thankful for the energy and follow through of Artists Sunday."

“Artists Sunday is just a great idea. Most of the artists we work with have had no place to show their work recently. Artists Sunday gives them a nationwide platform to promote their work while getting the public focused on purchasing art to enrich the lives of their family and friends.”

“OneRedmond is proud to be a part of Artists Sunday. Our artists are such a valuable part of our community, our culture, and our economy. It is important that we support our artists every day, but especially on Artists Sunday.”

"I found out about Artists Sunday from a fellow artist in Houston. Opening my studio during our pandemic has been challenging, so I decided to submit a video. Cynthia was very encouraging when she gave her honest feedback and that's when I decided it was time to create a more professional welcoming video into La Donna Foto new studio in Art District Houston. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in a national effort that will help all artists!"
