If you have an interest as a youth artist in our UPTOWN ART FAIR @ BACHMAN’S event on August 3 & 4, please contact us at:


Celebrating its 18th year, the Uptown Youth Art Fair gives young artists an opportunity to shine at the Uptown Art Fair. Bringing together more than 40 up-and-coming artists between the ages of 8 and 18, the Youth Art Fair showcases their talent while allowing them to display, discuss and sell their artwork while keeping all of the proceeds. This event takes place inside Seven Points Uptown.

Works included everything from photography and painting to woodworking and jewelry. This art fair component is an excellent opportunity for youth artists to showcase their work and experience an art fair alongside experienced artists.
