Covington Art Market Saturday, April 7th
St. Tammany Art Association, in partnership with the City
of Covington, presents the Covington Art Market, a juried
market of visual arts and crafts held six times per year on
first Saturdays within the Spring and Fall seasons. The
next art market is scheduled for Saturday, April 7 from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. The market is now hosted in its new
location, Art Alley, the community gathering space between
St. Tammany Art Association’s Art House and H.J. Smith &
Sons General Store, 320 N. Columbia St. in downtown
Covington. The event features a variety of work from local
and regional artists, including jewelry, photography,
paintings, woodworking, fiber art and more. Additional
Covington Art Markets are scheduled for May 5, October 6,
November 3 and December 2.
The purpose of the market is to provide exposure and a
venue for our members to showcase and sell their work.
While you’re downtown Covington for the art market, we
encourage you to visit other locations, including
exhibitions at the Art House, the nostalgic array of goods
and the historic museum at H.J. Smith & Sons General Store
and the Saturday Farmers Market, which takes place from 8
a.m. to noon at 609 N. Columbia Street, just a few blocks
away. Then enjoy a bite at one of downtown Covington’s many
restaurants. It’s a great way to spend your Saturday!
