Local artisans sought for December’s Uptown Village Market in Bixby Knolls

The Uptown Village Market is currently seeking artisans of all kinds to take part in the upcoming Village Market, a two-day event offering unique, high-quality, handcrafted goods and original artwork.
The Uptown Village Market offers a place for artists and creators of well-crafted goods to show and sell their work. The event will be held Friday, Dec. 7, and Saturday, Dec. 8 in the Expo Arts Center in Bixby Knolls.
Artists’ entries will be juried from among applications. Vendor booths are already filling up, and the event has been sold out to vendors in the past. The Market is intended to feature a select, eclectic array of emerging designers producing original and handmade goods in a wide variety of media– creating innovative work using traditional craft methods.
Among the many products expected to be showcased are original products, handmade items, and a variety of eclectic and sophisticated creations ranging from jewelry, stationery, fashion, steam-punk art and fashion jewelry, ceramic and glass wares, edibles, and accessories for the home, garden, pets, kids, men and women.
Opening night of the Uptown Village Market will be held in conjunction with the popular First Fridays art walk event, a night of art, music and food, which regularly draws a crowd of more than 1,000 participants.
