A beloved holiday tradition benefiting KPFA 94.1 FM Public Radio – a juried crafts fair showcasing 200 exhibitors presenting affordable art and crafts - with something for everyone. This year introduces ‘Edible Tastings’ with local food artisans serving complimentary samples.

San Francisco, California - The KPFA Crafts Fair features the original work of over 200 exhibitors, live music in a spacious food court, live on-air broadcast on KPFA 94.1 FM, plus easy transportation - free continuous shuttles to/from the Civic Center BART Station both days.

The KPFA Crafts Fair showcases the brightest talents in contemporary art and craft, highlighting both experienced and emerging designers who produce one-of-a-kind, handmade and limited edition goods in a wide variety of media. These jury selected artisans and craftspeople combine new and traditional techniques with modern design aesthetics to produce appealingly fresh and innovative work. Each of them will be present at the Concourse to showcase their own work, from outstanding wearable textiles to sophisticated ceramics, luminous glass, innovative furniture and housewares. There’s also gorgeous, evocative photography, original screen-printed art, contemporary paper goods and affordable fashionable jewelry.

KPFA Radio has a reputation for embracing diversity and supporting local communities through its programming. Similar principles of discernment apply in the selection process of exhibitors for the KPFA Crafts Fair. The Fair prioritizes a uniqueness of style, a high level of artisanship, craftwork created in studio (the artist/exhibitor must have an active hand in the making of their work), while trying to represent as much variety as possible. Fair producer Jan Etre has been an advocate of artists and craftspeople for 25 years. Etre explains, "The jury process ensures a wide composition of crafts exhibitors at our show. It is the means by which the great reputation of the KPFA Crafts Fair is reinvigorated every year. And so many artists take great care when sourcing their materials, to be responsible to the ecology of our planet and environment."

The Concourse will be closing its doors after the event and at this point it is uncertain where the KPFA Crafts Fair will be held future years. The fair's last year at the Concourse will be celebrated with a two-for-one deal: buy one $10 ticket and your guest enters for free, plus anyone over 65 or under 17 years of age is welcome to attend for free.

Exhibitor Theresa Kwong, a metalsmith jewelry designer says about the KPFA Crafts Fair, "I was extremely impressed by the friendly staff that made the show run like a well-oiled machine and by the quality of artwork by talented and warm-hearted artists.  I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend."  In describing her work, Theresa says, “my design sensibility comes from my training as an architect, resulting in clean lines and sinuous curves. My work expresses tremendous visual movement, reminiscent of a Frank Gehry structure.” theresa@tkmetalarts.com

They will also be selling products that make great Christmas gifts as well as ideal tasty treats for the attendees to bring home. 

TRANSPORTATION
