Affordable and eclectic items will be available for sale, while a conversation will stimulate
The Boston Center for the Arts will be holding an Artist Pop-Up Market on Dec. 18, from 1-6 p.m. at the Mills Gallery.

At 4 p.m., these creators, including Berry, will hold a conversation “about their ideas on new approaches to supporting a creative career in the age of ecommerce,” according to Boston Center for the Arts. Hot chocolate will be served.
Artists whose works will appear in the pop-up include Anukriti Kaushik, Hibi, Ivory Henry, Katiana Rodriguez, Rania Abdalla Kadafour, Sam Le Shave, Sumeya Ali, and Villada Michelle.
