Sunnyside Artists to Hold Craft Fair at Queen of Angels Church Sunday


Nov. 12, 2014 By Michael Florio

The third annual Crafts & Arts Show takes place in Sunnyside on Sunday, with 34 crafters offering items as varied as leather goods, handmade jewelry and pottery.

The event, which is being held at the Queen of Angels Church parish center, opens at 10 a.m. Food will be sold throughout the day that includes meatball sliders, vodka penne and various desserts.

“We hope everyone will stop by and perhaps buy their holiday gifts at good prices which supports our local artists,” said Manny Gomez, the president of Sunnyside Artists whose group organizes the annual event.

Several participants from last year’s craft fair are back—including photographer Don Soules and Emily Dunne, an artist who does witty photo assemblages.

There will also be some new faces this year that include Michael Gurrado, who works with wood, and Kris Czerniachowich who makes handmade Christmas ornaments.

“Batman” is expected to appear in costume, accompanying comic strip artwork.

Luke Adams, VP of Sunnyside Artists, will be absent for the first time. He passed away on Monday. There will be a moment of silence in his honor.


Date/Time: Sunday, Nov. 16 (10 a.m.- 5 p.m.)

Location: Queen of Angels Church parish center (corner of 44th Street and Skillman Ave.)

Admission is free

“Michael Gurrado, who works with wood” You couldn’t just say that he’s a woodworker? I’ve seen his page, FlannelMan Woodworks, pretty good stuff.
