The 2020 Historic Shaw Art Fair has been canceled

We regret that we have had to cancel the event due to both financial risks and health concerns. After careful consideration plus the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Shaw Neighborhood Improvement Association felt we could not ensure the safety of our artists, volunteers, guests, and Flora Place residents. Further, the potential financial risks, had we gone forward, were deemed too great.

Please Support Our Artists

The Artists selected for this year are all being invited back for 2021. See our 2020 Artists page with examples of their work, contact information and links to their websites. PLEASE consider supporting them as this year has been especially hard on artists who regularly do art fairs across the nation.
