HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Creative people in the city of Holyoke showed off their work Saturday at a Holyoke Heritage Park arts bazaar.
Artists and craftmakers in Holyoke have been anxious to attract an audience and enhance the city’s reputation as a center for the arts.
Those who came to the arts bazaar provided some positive feed back for the painters and artisans.
“I was interested to see like what people in Holyoke were doing. What kinds of art they were doing, things they were making because I haven’t seen much of it, but I’ve heard a lot of new things are happening in Holyoke,” Laura Hansen of Holyoke said.
Others saw the Bazaar as a chance to mingle with artistic people who’ve crafted everything from jewelry and clothing to candles and recycled glass.
