On the 25th November, also known as Small Business Saturday, the first ever Artist Market On Linden begins. This one of a kind event will feature the most original line up of artistic shopping experiences ever seen in Queens.
Held in the prestigious neighborhoods of Addisleigh Park/St Albans, the Artist Market on Linden is going to host the mega talent of Southeast Queens, as a one of a kind pop up shopping event for residents. A large number of vending spaces have been booked, and each one will showcase an artist’s unique work. From clothing to paintings, food to soaps, candles to fashion accessories, the Artist Market will offer a diverse range of shopping/cultural experiences and meet and greet opportunities. Visitors can attend free of charge at 198 Linden Blvd, St. Albans, NY 11412.
Queens Center Of The Arts, the organizer of the Artist Market, has selected the 25th of November for the opening day of the event to celebrate Small Business Saturday and promote local talent of all ages. The Queens Center Of The Arts will continue to schedule pop up shops throughout the year, so that both students and teachers will be able to sell their work.
Addisleigh Park/St. Albans and the whole community of Southeast Queens have long been regarded as an incredibly artistic part of the city and they were historically home to a long list of talented greats. Some remember when Fats Waller, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Hank Aaron and Miles Davis to name a few lived here. Until now, there has not been a singular event that acts as an opportunity to sell and meet with local artists and their work.
The already booked artists are extremely excited at the prospect of showcasing their creations. A local graduate of the School of Visuals Arts, who will be attending the event, C Adison says, “Finally, local artists have an opportunity to showcase their hand crafted creations and connect with shoppers in an entirely new, innovative way.”
Market dates are November 25th from 3:00pm-9:00pm; November 26th from 1:00pm-7:00pm; December 17th from 1:00pm-9:00pm; and December 23rd from 3:00pm-9:00pm. Free admission for the public. Local Artists and Creatives are counting on proactive community support.
