The 11th Annual Out of the Box Art Market will kick off four weekends in Oak Park on Black Friday, Nov. 29, featuring local artists' work during the holiday shopping season.
Located at 109 N. Oak Park Ave. in Oak Park, the dates and times of the Art Market include: (Grand Opening) Nov. 29 from 5-8 p.m. and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 30 through Dec. 22.
The market will feature more than 30 artists, with items ranging from fiber art and photography to jewelry, pottery, painting and gourmet foods.
Each weekend will showcase a different selection of art, as some artists will be there all the weekends and some only one or two.
The Art Market is sponsoring a “Share the Warmth” Coat Drive, to benefit the Emergency Clothes Closet in Oak Park.
Donors who bring in coats, scarves, hats, or gloves during the first three weekends will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win specially commissioned pieces by participating artists which express their interpretation of the theme “share the warmth."
Shoppers will also receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes with each purchase.
