This weekend, the Holiday Thieves’ Market returns once again to the IMU. The University of Iowa Fine Arts Council will host more than 60 artists from around the country and the world from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 2.

Admission to this event is free, and all are welcome. A free wine tasting will be held at noon Saturday.

Some of the artists featured in this show include potter Paul Zoldahn, who returns to the event after participating in the 1980s. He is from Duluth, Minn., and, marketing sirector Lillian Allen-Duenas said, is excited to showcase his ceramics.

Allen-Duenas said the council is also thrilled to have veteran Vahan Bedeian back again this year. Bedeian reportedly told the council, “It’s not about art. It’s about the people. At the show, I’m seeing the children of people I’ve sold rings to back in the day. People know where to come see me. They come by to chat and catch up. Even if they don’t buy anything, it’s nice to see the familiar faces.”
