Our Directors:

Julie Leatherbarrow: The Saturday Artisan Market has been a dream of Julie’s since moving back to Buffalo in 2004. As a glass artist who has traveled the country participating in music festivals and art shows, Julie has seen how cities have used their natural landscape to support local artists. The development of Buffalo’s waterfront has made it an ideal location for Julie’s dream to become a reality. To contact Julie, email

Robin Lenhard: When Robin heard that Julie was starting an Artisan Market, she quickly offered her assistance. With more than 25 years’ experience in marketing, promotion and special events, Robin currently sits on the board for Artists in Buffalo and is herself a working artist who has participated in area events for more than a decade.
