Exciting News!

I'd like to proudly announce that I am the new director of the Laurel Evening Market (LEM) within the Laurel District of east Oakland! Big thanks to Rachel Towne, originator and previous owner, for bestowing this gift. I'm extra excited about hearing volunteer ideas and making the first market one to remember.

Laura Barrios, another Bay Area native and artist, will be assisting in the coordination for the first market of 2018 which we anticipate will go down on the 3rd Thursday of April. Check out Laura's beautiful weavings and jewelry designs at www.lauraelenadesigns.com.

I'll be entering updates and on the search for Oakland and East Bay artists on Facebook and my and the LEM Instagram pages more toward the end of March/beginning of April. Until then, continue to check me out at upcoming local markets as seen on the home page banner, and here, of course. Until next time!
