GET READY IRONDEQUOIT!  

We are having the first Pop-up Art Market!

If you are reading this, then congratulations! You have been invited to participate in a wonderful pop-art market in the heart of Irondequoit. Create Art 4 Good is joining forces with I-Square to create the first annual pop-up art market. This market will be held on I-Square property 775 Titus Avenue, Irondequoit, NY 14617 in a building that was formerly a farmer’s market.

This finely curated exhibit will be held in cooperation with I-Square’s annual Fall Festival and will be held on Saturday, September 30th, 2017, from 11am until 4pm. This fantastic event draws patrons to I-Square in Irondequoit to enjoy activities, music, great food and this year ART! Last year the owners of I-Square claimed this as their most successful event. How exciting is that?

Patrons will enjoy the fantastic fall festival which includes hay rides right to the doorstep of our Pop-Up Art Market. The market is a sponsored collaboration between I-Square and Irondequoit Resident Susan Carmen-Duffy who owns Create Art 4 Good, which currently resides (when not popping up elsewhere), at the historic Hungerford Building.

In the “Pop-Up” world, things seem to move a little more quickly than usual so hold on tight! Here is the list of important dates that you will need to know to participate.
