The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is holding a pop-up art market supporting the Oxford Fiber Festival this weekend at The Powerhouse.

The Fiber Arts Festival was scheduled for Jan. 19 and 20; however, a winter storm dumped 4 inches of ice and snow on Oxford forcing the event to be canceled.

YAC decided to hold the pop-up market and invite the vendors scheduled to sale their wares at the Fiber Arts Festival, along with any art vendor who wants to rent a booth.
