Thank you & Bye for now!

Thank you for your support. I am very happy to have met and worked with so many talented and professional people. Also to be a part of something that brought so much colour and life to the City Centre on a summers day. This includes Picadilly Circus and the hard work of Matt Taylor.

If you were a seller Please check the site and re-post anything to help promote your business.

If anyone is interested in purchasing anything you see on here. I'm sure the artists/makers will be happy to hear from you. I have linked to their web-pages and contact info wherever possible.

I couldn't have been more pleased with how the day went!

This project is now closed for the time being. As such this blog, the email, and facebook page will no longer be updated regularly.

I would like to see Art Market grow to become a well established annual event. Perhaps we will see you at Art Market 2012.

All the best.
Marcus Wemyss: Art Market Project Manager
