Who Are We?

Heartmade Art Market is a juried art market conceived and created by Tracy Manford Carlson of Tracy Carlson Photography and Sonja Fulbright of Crush Design Co. Our tag line, “design for happiness,” is exactly how we like to do things. ‪We think small actions add up to big results, so we’re putting the hearts of Texas' talented artists to work for the benefit of local non-profit organizations and the community at large.‬

How Do We Do  It?

Heartmade Art Market is a carefully curated show, and artists are admitted through an application process. Heartmade artists are among the best ambassadors of the Texas art community, and we always want to make sure they are able to find success. We designed this market to ensure that both the artists and the charity would come out on top. Booth fees go directly to the charity, leaving the artists free to make their sales knowing the “heartwork” is already taken care of. We partner with Houston's Downtown District and they provide our artists with 10'x10' booth space, tent coverage, free parking for one car, an 8 ft table, two chairs, and more. It's fantastic!

Who Do We Help?

This year we will be helping Hoof Prints and Heart Beats. It was created to provide free rehabilitation and therapeutic riding for physically challenged individuals and people who suffer from social disorders such as autism, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and eating disorders, as well as Equine Enhanced Counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma, and addiction recovery.
