Pop-Up Market – Thank You for Your Support

We thank you for your support of Pop-Up Market. We had a fantastic year and couldn’t have done it without you. As you know we had a great deal of success. Events took place in Fort Worth and Arlington, dozens of vendors participated, and we received coverage in all major DFW media outlets including WFAA, CBS 11, 360 West, Star-Telegram, Fort Worth Business Press and others. Additionally, we garnered a substanial social media presence, and developed a vast network of local artists.

Though we were pleased with how quickly the business grew, we have decided not to continue in 2014 so that we can pursue other business interests. We would love the opportunity to see the Market continue. Should you, or someone you know, have an interest in carrying on our vision of supporting local artists contact us via email. Pop-Up Market is a valuable brand and we’re looking for the right buyer to continue what we started.

Again, we thank you for helping us support local artists. Best wishes for a prosperous 2014.

Kind regards,
Jason and Jamie Brown

Artist Profile: Chef Impersonator

Chef GlassNancy Farrar is a public relations maven by day, and a chef impersonator by night. She uses her talents as a communicator to share her experiences on experimenting with cooking and her search for America’s best dishes on her blog Chef Impersonator. The self-proclaimed foodie became an accidental artist about ten years ago. She discovered her talent for creating etched glassware and wood serving trays while scrambling to craft handmade presents for family members. “My sister decided we were going to all start doing homemade gifts for Christmas. I resisted like crazy, but those gifts I came up with are now the works I’m selling,” Nancy said.Digital StillCamera

Nancy dreams of having her work sold in the gift shops of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Kimbell Art Museum. In the meantime, shop her work at Pop-Up Market Saturday, July 13.

Learn more about Nancy in her responses to the questions below.

-What inspires you?
I’m inspired by finding an artistic side to myself that I never knew existed. I’m just beginning to explore it.

Chef Tray

-What’s the best thing about what you do?
The best thing about what I do is the sense of satisfaction that comes from making something by hand that folks want to buy and put into their homes. It’s quite an honor.

– What’s the hardest part about creating your work?

-How did you come up with the name Chef Impersonator?
I did it the way I do it for my branding projects in my PR company. I begin with a clean sheet of paper and start writing down words. Then I put them together in various ways until the right combo arrives. Simple but not. Selling food-oriented gifts under that same name just seemed natural.

Artist Profile: Fire Borne Jewelry

Fireborne NecklaceClaudia Farber’s hands give life to beaded necklaces that sparkle and earrings made from precious stones that dangle. Her silver work is born from flames used to shape the metal. The process is the inspiration behind her company’s name: Fire Borne Jewelry.

You can travel all the way to Savannah, GA, to see her pieces at A. T. Hun Gallery, or you can shop her work at Pop-Up Market, Saturday, July 13 in Fort Worth.

Learn more about Claudia in her responses to the questions below.
-What inspires you?
Texture, unique stones, beauty, and the creative process.
-How long have you been creating your art?
I started my first website in 2007, but I’ve been creating jewelry most of my life.
-What is your dream for your work?
 I would love to open a small studio where I could create and sell at the same time.

-What’s the biggest honor you have received for your work?
Tarrant Area Food Bank, asked me to create a piece for their event, and the Quad-City Symphony “Derby Days” fund raiser in Rock Island, IL, requested a piece also.
