In addition, Division 9 Gallery will present Artisans Collective, a unique Arts Market on Main Street, between University and 9th Street. Here you will discover hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind art, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, paintings, mosaics, garments, stationary and art demos. Enjoy and embrace local artistry in downtown Riverside every Friday and Saturday, 5-10pm, now through January 5, 2013.
