In November, 1998, we held our first group show at the Hoover House in Palo Alto, for three days over Thanksgiving weekend. Eleven of our artists participated. Between four and five hundred customers attended our show, encouraging us to continue this new venue for our work. In 1999 we expanded our show to two weekends, offering our work and the work of selected guest artists each weekend. Increased signage drew many new customers from the local area. In 2000 we returned to a one-weekend format, close to the Winter Holidays. Sixteen artists participated. We drew over six hundred customers. In 2001 we continued on the same December weekend, drawing even more customers despite the economic slump. In 2010 & 2011, the upward trend continued, with 21 booths, breaking all our previous sales records. In 2013, thru to 2018 with 21 booths we all have a wonderful time of creative art as gifts for the soul and heart. This year we are celebrating our 23rd year at Hoover House.
The event is set among the Shopping Center’s charming covered walks and takes place Saturday and Sunday, March 30 & 31 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. More than 20 celebrated artists will be on hand during this free event, giving visitors the opportunity to browse and buy unique, original pieces ranging from paintings, photography, ceramics, jewelry and much more. Please see Ling-Yen designs new work.
At the Contemporary Craft Market you will see many different kinds of jewelry/metalwork, paintings, sculptures and much more. Please visit me at booth 313. Thank you.
