The annual Sunnyside Artists Crafts & Art show is set to take place this weekend, where attendees can pick up works from over 40 local artisans.
The free admission event will take place on Nov. 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the ground floor space of the Queen of Angels Church at 44-04 Skillman Ave.
A total of 42 local artistans, 13 for the first time, will present their work on Sunday in a variety of mediums, like ceramics, clothing accessories, pottery, wood, jewelry, paintings, and more. The event will also includes raffles and a free glass of wine with every art purchase, sponsored by Lowery’s Liquors. A $5.00 pop-up lunch, sponsored by Dazies, will be available at the art show.
The annual event also sets aside a portion of table fees to be donated to local food pantries.
The popular event sees hundreds of attendees a year, with last year’s event ringing in nearly 800 visitors.
The event’s many sponsors include Welcome Home Real Estate, Quaint, Sole Luna, De Mole, and the Sugar Room.
Attendees will receive a “Skillmanville” pin, good for 15 percent discounts at Skillman sites like Claret, the Dog & Duck, Copper Kettle, Aubergine, and more.
Sunnyside Artists was founded in 2007, and is made up of over 200 visual artists from the Woodside and Sunnyside area, along with 400 art supporters. The first event for the collaborative was a fine art fair show, which celebrated its tenth year over the summer. A crafts show is an add-on requested by the community.
The full lineup of artisans at the Sunday event are listed on the event flyer.
Hi how can I get vendor information?
El Loco I don’t know the answer to the Blue t shirt guy or what jacked up means. But here’s the answer to one of your questions about OJJ:
If you think the first person to bridge the gap between rap and R&B was Drake, you probably just put in your order for your high school class ring or a Sunnyside Snowflake. Those of us who are older and wiser know the true R&B trailblazer was Oran “Juice” Jones.
I’m sure you remember OJ Jones. If not, that’s what I’m here for.
Before Oran Jones took the music world by storm, he had quite a decorated military career.
The Houston native graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1981 and was the second African-American Brigade Commander in Naval Academy history. He served as a sniper officer in the United States Marine Corps until 1986, when the music industry came calling.
OJ was the first artist signed to OBR Records, a subsidiary of the renowned Def Jam label. This also made him the very first R&B artist on the hip-hop record label. While that doesn’t seem like a big deal today, back then, rap and R&B were two totally separate entities. In fact, it was practically an insult to associate a rap artist with anything remotely resembling R&B. The soothing sounds of R&B clashed with hip hop’s rebellious edge.
OJ Jones’ signing signaled a partnership between the genres that would last till this day.
Why is this stuff allowed. Block these people. This comment section is the worst
Who the heck is the blue T-shirt Guy? And what is the definition of jacked up? Who is OJJ? The people need answers to these questions.
I will be displaying my paint by numbers pieces including my famous paintings of the dogs going different ways and the old guy with the white beard.
Loco was going to bring his mom but the elevator at the 61st stop didn’t work and the old coot couldn’t make it up the stairs
Bruno got jacked up while passing through Woodside circa 1984 by a Roosevelt Avenue miscreant.
Blue T-shirt guy was a character in The Little Rascals.
The notorious “Blue JVB T-shirt Hipster” is JVB’s flunky. He needs to hit Gustavo’s Barber Shop on Greenpoint Avenue for a Royal Hot Towel Shave. I think he was Alfalfa on The Little Rascals.
What is going on in sunnyside gardens park? It’s 9:00 Sunday night and there are lights and people. What are the snobs who run the park hiding from us?
Is the Blue T-shirt guy the person who “Jacked Up” Bruno? What does Bruno mean that he got “jacked up” in the other thread about VB/Constantinides? Why can’t you dopes speak English. The Blue T-Shirt guy should be investigated for “Jacking Someone Up”
My dad NEIL is having an art history show in the lobby of our co-op on 39 Place. Can any of you Snowflakes help us apply for one of those government grants for arts? Thanks in advance.
No way I’m coming to see that.
For those who don’t know the Sunnyside Craft Fair is one of the leading Art Fares in the world right after Paris and Rome. Al from Sunnysides mother has exhibited her art there many times.
your act is getting old, and also, its spelled “fair”
Is this Al? You know I’m funny. In a poll done by the Sunnyside Post I’m the most popular contributor to the SSP. So there Al.
You are wrong El Joko. The dude that brought OJJ into the mix is much funnier. Have you ever even heard of Oran Juice Jones?
They are the same person
You are a ?Head
No, wasn’t me. Apparently I’m not the only one who is sick of you . your a boring minion
Anyone need some crafts from Bangladesh? I️ got some deals! Hit me up on the cell. I’m just lampin over here.
I would feel out of place as I don’t have a trust fund.

I don’t mind you clowns with your arts and crafts play day but please keep the racket down so I can sleep. If anybody happens to be passing Starbucks on the way there please pick me up a venti skinny latte with a chocolate cake pop. If I’m sleeping just leave it next to me and do not disturb. Thank you
I love arts and crafts. I live on government art grants. I am a true Skillmanville person!
Hey Bruno: please stop writing in. You’re boring!
So are you
Very neat. Can’t wait 🙂
