Terrain’s Bazaar returns to downtown Spokane on Saturday

Doug Nadvornick from SPR reports.

One of the annual events in downtown Spokane returns this year after it was canceled due to Covid in 2020. We’re not talking about Hoopfest. We’re talking about Terrain’s seventh annual art bazaar, which celebrates local art and artists.

Ginger Ewing, executive director of Terrain, said the event reinforces their organization’s belief that art is not just for artists and the wealthy.

“It doesn’t matter if you have a degree in art history. It doesn’t matter if you are an artist. It doesn’t matter if you can’t go to a museum and say that this piece is technically stronger than this piece and the reason for it, ”she said.

The bazaar usually takes place indoors. This year, because of a desire to protect people, it will be outside and occupy several blocks of Main Street.

“The stands will be a little further apart than they normally are. There will be fewer of them, although there is still a lot to see and see. Since this is an outdoor event, we are pretty comfortable with all of our guidelines, ”said Ewing.

She says there will be live music and family-friendly activities throughout the day for those comfortable in Riverpark Square.

Terrain’s chief operating officer Jackie Caro says the bazaar is an event that defines art in general.

“Ceramists are just as much artists as visual artists. So if you come to an event like this you will find all kinds of art. It won’t be what a lot of people think of your traditional art, which is a work of visual artist that you find in a gallery or museum. That’s functional art too, wearable art, “she said.

“Local artists are an incredibly important part of our economy and it’s important to support them financially.

You can find Terrain’s Bazaar on Main Street in downtown Spokane, on Saturdays from 11am to 9pm. It’s free and open to the public.
