Blue Genie Holiday Art Bazaar 2012: November 27 through December 24

Blue Genie Holiday Art Bazaar

The Blue Genie Art Bazaar is an Austin tradition during the holiday shopping season (disclosure: I’ve been involved since it started 13 years ago, and hubby is a Genie.) The Blue Genie Art Bazaar features the handmade work of over 130 local area artists and craftspeople. It’s a great place to buy exceptional imaginative, quirky, and beautiful art and gifts (paintings, sculptures, jewelry, clothing, accessories, glassworks, ceramics, prints, photography, and plenty of items you can’t find anywhere else). I do most of our holiday shopping there and gift recipients have been thrilled. Open 7 days a week at 10:00am, the event runs from November 27th through the 24th and admission is always FREE!

And Blue Genie now has a retail space in the Oasis complex, open year-round and featuring a hand-picked selection of artists and craftspeople who have participated in the holiday bazaar. Last year the Oasis had a temporary ice skating rink, and visiting Santa and elves near the gallery.

Thanks for supporting local artists and craftspeople!

The Blue Genie Oasis Gallery is turning 1!!!!

Now in its 13th year, the Blue Genie Art Bazaar features the work of over 130 artists and craftspeople. This year the Bazaar runs November 30 through December 24.

Blue Genie Oasis offers a space for up and coming local artists to sell their art year round in an organized professional workplace. Each artist with merchandise in the Blue Genie Oasis Gallery store is hand selected by the artists at Blue Genie. All live and work locally in central Texas.

“The gallery store helps artists create a name for their selves and gain popularity, and liberates them to be in their studios creating more work to meet the demands of commissioners. Blue Genie has helped many local artists get their feet off the ground and become successful.

Our vendors offer all sorts of imaginative, quirky, and beautiful products: paintings, sculptures, jewelry, clothing, accessories, glassworks, ceramics, prints, photography, and plenty of miscellany and surprises that you can’t find anywhere else.
Our hopes with Blue Genie Oasis Texas is to encompass the joy of the Art Bazaar and to support our vendors year round in creating specialty made goods for you and your family.”

We could not have done it with YOU! Please come help us celebrate.”
