Hello! It's that time of year again and the holidays are quickly approaching! We are planning our annual Holiday Market and would love to have you join us! The Holiday Market will be at MakerPark, across the street from Makerspace Staten Island! This year we are doing a two weekend event, Saturday, December 4th, Sunday, December 5th, Saturday, December 11th and Sunday, December 12th, 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. with 15 vendors each day. Each vendor may choose only one of the four dates so please let us know which day you prefer. Spaces are approximately 10' x 10' and will be assigned on a first come basis. Set-up begins at 10 a.m. The holiday market will be outside in MakerPark again to allow for social distancing protocols. Masks are suggested. Because it will be outdoors, we recommend bringing a tent, table, chairs and a small propane heater. We no longer have use of the picnic tables. As in previous years, there will not be a table fee for you to participate but we really would appreciate your donation to the Makerspace at the end of the event if you've had sales. Feel free to share this info with other artists that might want to participate. Please let me know if you are interested in participating and on which day. Also, please include your name, business name, email address and phone number with your reply. Contact terry@makerspace.nyc with any questions. Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you at the market!

About the artist: ericasellers.com Erica Sellers is a product designer, builder, and mad scientist based in NYC. Her playful work questions physical form through incorporeal means, and emphasizes the duality of entropy and order. Erica works on technology's bleeding edge, but grounds her designs in fine craftsmanship, material, and concept, a harmonious blend of the industrial and the organic. This interplay is evident in the marriage of analog and digital processes she uses to visualize data and sound for her furniture works. Erica Sellers is a cofounder of Studio S II ("ess-TOO"), a product and interior design studio based in Brooklyn, NY, that expresses distinctive style through provocative, cinematic furniture, objects, and environments. She holds a BFA in Industrial Design from RISD and has a decade of experience in the international fine art world. Her expertise includes 3D modeling, tech pack and fabrication development, and prototype creation. Apart from having shown her furniture works nation wide, starting April 22 on HBO Max, design aficionados will be able to catch an unprecedented glimpse into Sellers’ artistic process as she competes in furniture design challenges alongside a talented cast in Ellen's Next Great Designer.
