The Trinity University Art Market returns once again today, Friday, April 19. Showcasing the wares of more than 40 vendors, students at this semester’s art market will sell a wide variety of creative products.

Since spring 2021, the Trinity University Art Collective has organized the Art Market, an opportunity for students to sell their artisan products. For many vendors, the art market is an outlet to showcase their art, get coverage or just have some fun. For example, many vendors use the market to make extra money off their non-academic artistic hobbies.

Emily Haynes, junior psychology major, sells crocheted products alongside other members of the TU Crochet and Knitting Club. She and four other members are selling pieces they have made, including bags and plushies. This is her first time vending at the art market, and Haynes described her excitement at peddling her wares with her club members.

Art Market Seeks Its Footing After Stumbling Sales and a Hack at Christie’s

Estimates are still soaring past the $20 million mark and canvases still bear the signatures of dependable ringers like Warhol, Basquiat and Picasso. But there is a shadow looming over the spring auction season that begins Monday.

A cyberattack at Christie’s brought down the company’s website on Thursday, and as of Sunday morning, Christie’s had not yet regained control of it. On Sunday evening, in his first public statement since the cyberattack, Guillaume Cerutti, the chief executive of Christie’s, confirmed that eight auctions would proceed as scheduled, with bidding in person and by phone (the rare watches sale has been postponed until May 14). A place-holder website was set up allowing access to the digital catalogs, but did not allow online bidding. With the site down and questions still unanswered about the fate of confidential data, analysts are uncertain about the impact on buyers and sellers.
