COURTESY OF OAK PARK TEMPLE
Thursday, January 22, 2015 – Oak Park, Illinois. Oak Park Temple B’nai Abraham Zion is inviting artists and hand-crafters from around the area to participate in an Artisan’s Market on Sunday, March 1, 2015, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Artisan’s Market is open to all artists, and you need not be a member of Oak Park Temple to exhibit and sell your works. The event is free and open to the public, but exhibitors will need to pay fees based on the size of space they need.
The Artisan’s Market is sponsored by the Sisterhood of Oak Park Temple, as well as by the Oak Park Temple Creative Community (OPTCC), who describe it as an economical marketing opportunity for creatives and a unique, diverse shopping experience for visitors.
“Our community is home to artists and art lovers of all kinds,” says OPTCC leader Karen Muriello. “We think this is a great unique opportunity to showcase the works of the many artists inside and outside our community and to provide a means for selling to their fellow community members.”
Artists interested in exhibiting must reserve their space by February 15, 2015. They can do so on the Oak Park Temple web site at http://www.oakparktemple.com/artisans-market.html. Visitors to the event need no RSVP to attend. For any questions about the Artisan’s Market, please leave your name and number at 708-406-9746 for a quick call back.
