Art market open for three days

SoSu Art Collective has nine members, many of whom are teachers


Drive to Aspen Grove this weekend, 7301 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, and turn in to park at the south end. Between Ted’s Montana Grill and GiGi’s Cupcakes, you will find SoSu’s Fourth Annual Holiday Pop-Up Art Market, hosted by members and guests of SoSu: South Suburban Artist Collective. The pop-up gallery will be open through Dec. 9.

SoSu Art Collective is a group of Centennial-based creatives who offer gifts in a variety of mediums: clay, paint, encaustic, printmaking, wood, collage and more, as well as a line of all-natural botanical products and an assortment of handmade jewelry. The pop-up shop will be open only for a Friday-to-Sunday run: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Dec. 7 and 8 and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 9.

For a fourth year, this group has gathered together to present an inviting source for handmade holiday gifts.

The collective’s members are: Julie Vincelette, Stephanie Wilson Thomas, Emilia Van Nest Markovich, Deanna Hood, Kate Dulaney, Mary Lynn Baird, Janet Nelson Moore, Mar Knight-Hall and Alec Ellis.

Many are teachers, who enjoy working with their hands when not in a classroom, where a host of other creative talents are called for, as they hope to mold students’ skills and interests …

Stephanie Wilson Thomas and Julie Vincelette will present items made of clay — both sculptural and functional pieces. Vinclette had sold her Mudwork Pottery for many years.

Guest Alec Ellis will offer handmade wooden bowls and more in various sizes, shapes and woods.

Emelia Van Nest Markovich, interested in nature, presents collages and works done with pastels on black paper, with some touches of gold leaf.

Mary Lynn Baird creates a variety of collages, mixed media works, prints, encaustic paintings and original jewelry, as do Deanna Hood and Kate Dulaney

Mar Knight-Hall has developed a selection of all-natural botanical products (Tulipan Herbals) — creams, salves, herbal pillows and more.

Janet Nelson Moore paints with acrylics and creates mixed media works, including collages. They range from whimsical abstracts to figurative, traditional subjects. She recently exhibited work in the Healing Arts series at Parker Adventist Hospital and also creates coasters and cards.
