Created in the summer of 2014, ART’clectic is a group of Southern Oregon artists and artisans who meet monthly to discuss marketing their creations. Holding pop­up events was one idea that intrigued the group; the first took place in Dec. 2014 with the ART’Clectic Artisan’s Market at Oddfellow’s Hall on Oregon Street in Jacksonville during Victorian Christmas Days, followed by spring and summer Markets at Art Presence Art Center and Oddfellow's Hall, both in Jacksonville.
