The Hippest Holiday Art Fair in Town

The local newspaper, the Austin American-Statesman, calls the Blue Genie Art Bazaar “simply the hippest holiday art fair in town.” So if that’s their story, I’m stickin’ to it.

Step into the Blue Genie Art Bazaar (it’s free) and you’ll be greeted with a friendly face (besides mine)—Santa’s. Pose with the Sheriff for a photo (like I did).

Belly  up to the bar for a snack and your drink of choice, and feel free to carry your adult beverage around the show with you while you shop. There are over 200 local-ish artists and craftspeople selling their wares in two huge rooms.

When you locate the AustinDetails.me booth (that’s mine), you can take in my art, including some of Austin’s beloved landmarks, some stylized wildflower prints, and some mission church photo paintings.

Blue Genie Art Bazaar

And now you know why the Austin, Texas locals shop local for the holidays at the 14th annual Blue Genie Art Bazaar. At least that’s my story. So you know I’m stickin’ to it. ♣


The Blue Genie Art Bazaar at the Marchesa Hall and Theatre in Austin, Texas is open 10am-10pm daily through Christmas Eve, featuring over 200 local and regional artists, with free admission, free parking and a cash bar to make the shopping go down easier. Blue Genie pays it forward, too, with a portion of its proceeds going to Make-A-Wish.® Find my art prints at the fair in the AustinDetails.me display (pictured above), and shop for Vanishing Austin, Mission Mexico and Flower Power.

Where are you shopping local for the holidays?
