Sunnyside Fine Arts Fair to Take Place Sunday

SunnysideArtists Fine Art Fair IX 2016

June 14, 2019 By Max Murray

Sunnyside residents will have the opportunity to come out this Sunday and support local artists while enjoying a glass of wine in the process.

The annual Queen of Angels Fine Art Fair, which is presented by Sunnyside Artists, will be held June 16 at the Queen of Angels Parish Hall, located at 44-04 Skillman Ave., from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The family-friendly event is rain or shine.

The fair will showcase the work of local, new, and returning artists, with each artist having a table to display and sell his or her work. The artwork will include ceramics, oil paintings, acrylic paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings.

A free glass of wine from Lowery Liquors will be given to individuals who purchase a piece of artwork.
Since the Art Fair falls on Father’s Day this year, all dads who attend will receive a small “Guardian Wing” token as a gesture of affection.

The first annual Art Fair took place in 2007 with just five artists and 75 attendees. In recent years, the event has drawn more than 30 artists and between 800 and 1,000 attendees throughout the course of the day.

Dorfman believes that the event is a great way for local artists to get their name out and sell their work. She added that it is also a fun time for everyone in attendance.

To Fair Visitors yesterday:

Are you the mom of the little boy who wanted to win the traveling rubber chicken in yesterday’s raffle at the art fair? If you are, the winner who actually won it remembered your son putting all his tickets into that item box, and kindly donated it back so he could win. If you are the mom, please email [email protected] so the traveling chicken can travel to your house!
(This is not a gag…fair visitor was quite intent on that item.)

Queens Streets for LOL

Wait just a minute, so you’re saying a perfectly rational result should be reversed to make you feel better? This seems strangely familiar. LOL!

The price is wrong

Unfortunately, due to the involvement of the organizers with the founding Queens Streets for All group that maliciously spreads falsehoods about safety, I will in protest take them at face value and will not be attending for fear that fire trucks cannot turn onto Skillman Avenue to save us.

I invite their both their supporters and detractors to join me in boycotting this event whether you take them seriously or not. People who act the way they have should not be encouraged.
