The Makers Market at Arlene’s, presented by Arlene's Artist Materials, celebrates its 3rd year of bringing together quality, locally made, artisanal wares perfect for the Holidays. The Markets will be held in the store at 57 Fuller Rd Albany NY 12205 on Saturdays, November 23rd, December 7th, and 21st, 2019 from 11am to 4pm.

We are excited to host a juried group of 21 artists, artisans and other small businesses from throughout the Capital Region. Market-goers are sure to find one of a kind cards, ceramics, prints, fine art, hand-turned wood and resin pens, uniquely crafted jewelry, boozy cakes and more. The Makers Market at Arlene’s is a series of three different Markets on Saturday, November 23rd, December 7th, and 21st, 2019 from 11am to 4pm.

The primary focus of the Makers Markets at Arlene’s is to promote the local creative community while developing a marketplace where people can purchase uniquely created items. We are looking for makers, including artists, artisans, and manufacturers of unique products, that offer well-designed quality products. Makers that have a clear voice whether expressed through a traditional medium or something experimental.

“We’re excited to help support our local community and create fun events for people to attend,” said Andrew Ochal, director of the Makers Market at Arlene’s. “There will be 7 different Makers at each Market with a total of 21 makers showcased. There is such a variety of great products you’d had to go to ever Market. Markets are sure to be a great time for everyone.”

About Our Makers:
Hazal Ozturk believes art is one of the key differentiators between us and other species. It’s a reflection of evolution. Art fulfills the emotional needs of evolved humans. As a self-taught artist, I’ve been controlling my evolution and sharing this process with others. Let's spread some art around.

Gary Maggio is a self-taught artist whose work is largely impulsive and whimsical. Using mostly pastels, sometimes in combination with pen and ink or oil paint, he conjures up imaginary humans in a way that a writer produces stories by a stream of consciousness. Rarely preconceived or plotted out, the results are a blend of colors shaped into bodies and faces and souls that can be recognizable and resonant.

Rebecca Flis is an avid bowler who enjoys her summers by running a sculpture shop at a visual arts camp for children. She is fervently interested in a wide range of sculptural processes, but her specialty is the casting process. Most recently, she has been using non-traditional materials to explore sensory play, materiality, and the relationship between texture and form in her work. Rebecca has taught many workshops, both nationally and internationally, on dung-molding, a form of natural mold-making used in some ancient casting processes.

Jean Krueger art bears witness of having been alive on this planet, with the intention that her work in the fullness of time will survive her tenure on earth, if only for a little while.

Sweet Sprig is a luxury brand of all-natural soap and body products that are designed to engage your senses and pamper your body. Each soap, butter, and scrub is made with all-natural, local, and eco-friendly ingredients that are always vegan and cruelty-free. Our products are made in small batches to ensure high-quality freshness and a unique scent combination that will leave your skin feeling amazing.

Diana Bangert-drowns art is inspired by color and dimension, and a love for the paper of all kinds expressed through origami (boxes, vases and ornaments), small books, watercolor, printmaking, and combinations thereof.

Anne Pascale’s art conveys the passionate interplay between color and light which takes the viewer beyond the 5 senses. She mainly works in watercolor and pen and ink. Her work encompasses framed pieces, unframed portfolio pieces, prints, tiles, coasters, dream-catchers, bookmarks, magnets, canvas bags and a variety of cards.

The Makers Market at Arlene's are FREE to attend, great for families and there will be truly something for everyone. Mark your calendars now and come check out our other Makers Market at Arlene's on November 23rd and December 7th. You’ll be glad to did.
