Kensington Market Art Fair

Kensington Market to get new outdoor art fair

Kensington Market's set to get even more eclectic and colourful this summer: the Kensington Market BIA and Pedestrian Sundays are partnering up to start an outdoor art fair series on the last Sunday of each month from May till October. Organizers are encouraging any and all artists to apply with 2D or 3D work; this will be a curated deal, though I'd expect along with the general spirit of the market, "curated" won't have the usual cliched, gallery-esque airs of affectation.

While it's hard to imagine the sights, sounds, and smells of the unique scene that is the bustle of a car-less Sunday in the market, hopefully this news serves to remind that summer will definitely happen, and some brave people believe in the seasons changing so strongly that they're making plans for it (I'm doing the same, mainly by hoarding shorts and florescent tank tops. Don't judge). Artists and artisans have until April 7th to apply for their own 10x10 square foot space .

The Kensington Market art fair will take place May 25, June 29, July 27, August 31, September 28, and October 26 2014.
