A History of Fair Trade at ArtRage Gallery

Learn about the origins of this annual event

The Fair Trade Sale at ArtRage Gallery has been a beloved tradition since 2011. It all began with the art exhibition titled 'Daughters of Ixchel - Women Weavers of Guatemala,' which showcased the photography of local artist Mary Lawyer O'Connor alongside traditional Mayan textiles.

This exhibition inspired ArtRage to make these beautiful creations available for sale to the Syracuse community. Over the years, the Fair Trade Sale has expanded to include vendors from Ghana, Colombia, India, Turkey, and Eswatini, offering a diverse selection of goods from around the world.
