I am currently a writing and photography contributor to the blog of the Raleigh chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Artists.

Queens Artisan Market Event Celebrates Second Anniversary
March 1, 2015
RIDGEWOOD, NEW YORK— The Ridgewood Market, an artisan market in Queens, New York, is celebrating its second anniversary with a Saturday evening event on April 11, 2015 from 5 to 11 p.m. at Gottscheer Hall, 657 Fairview Avenue.
This “Night Bazaar” celebration of the neighborhood’s popular craft event features nearly 50 independent vendors from Queens and the greater New York City area. Purses, hand-knitted accessories, semi-precious stone jewelry, local honey, body products, original artwork, vintage clothing, and homemade cupcakes will be among the offerings. While shoppers peruse the makers’ wares, they may listen to the onsite DJ hired for the evening, and take advantage of Gottscheer Hall’s Bar and Grill German-themed specialties.
Sarah Feldman, the pink-haired and charismatic organizer of Ridgewood Market since April of 2013, introduced the event to showcase neighborhood artists and vintage collectors. “This market was started because we felt Ridgewood was overlooked. Long Island City, Astoria, and other parts of Queens were always in the news. Why not Ridgewood? There are so many artists and designers here!” Her enterprising idea found its home in Gottscheer Hall, a restaurant and event space that was struggling to remain open at the time. Ms. Feldman’s monthly event, typically on Sunday afternoons, restored interest and brought new customers to this formerly members-only club for the Gottschee, a close-knit group of German-American immigrants.
Ridgewood residents are appreciative of Ms. Feldman’s contribution to the community. “You never know what you’re going to get, in a good way,” says one frequent attendee. “This neighborhood is a blend of blue-collar families, young hipsters, and everyone in between. When I visit the market I enjoy it not only for the experience of discovering creative local vendors, but also to seeing these groups interacting with one another and sharing the same space.”
The Ridgewood Market Night Bazaar will take place on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 5 to 11 p.m. at Gottscheer Hall, 657 Fairview Avenue in Ridgewood, New York 11385.
