The market, featuring 20 professional artists and artisans, opens Friday, Nov. 23, and runs every Wednesday through Sunday until Dec. 23 at 1880 W. American Avenue in Oracle from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

New, original, classic and contemporary work will include jewelry, oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, fine-art photographs, pastel drawings, ceramic and clay sculpture, painted furniture and metal garden art, hand-turned wood, painted steel and wire sculpture, papier-mache vessels, handcrafted candles, knitwear and weavings and one-of-a-kind artist-made books.
