The RISD Alumni + Student Art Sales exist to showcase alumni and student work, provide a testing ground for entrepreneurial efforts and new work, and to offer the local community a chance to interact with RISD work and artists/designers on a personal level.

RISD CRAFT, a juried sales exhibition, takes place outdoors on Providence’s historic Benefit Street in October during RISD by Design Weekend.

The Holiday Art Sale takes place in December at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

All artists participating in the sales are RISD alumni or current RISD students selling original artwork including prints, photographs, apparel, ceramics, glass, textiles, and more!

Sale Dates for 2015:

RISD Craft: Saturday, October 10th, 10am-5pm

Holiday Art Sale: Saturday, December 5th, 10am-5pm


See what our artists have been up to on our

Application dates for the following year are announced in December, and there is a separate application process for each sale.
