Locally made holiday gifts are now for sale at AlterWork Studios, an open access art and community center in Long Island City.

The Holiday Market officially opened the day after Thanksgiving on Nov. 23 and will stay open until Christmas Eve. Some of the gifts that art lovers can give to family and friends include pottery, leather apparel, printed T-shirts, prints, cards, buttons and paintings.

Most of the 14 artists selling their handmade pieces are Queens residents.

“We are working in our shops ourselves so people can come by and talk to the artists,” said AlterWork Studios founder Tina Stipanovic, who said that nobody is obligated to buy anything if they wish to visit the studio. “They can come by and just show their support.”

AlterWork Studios opened in 2017 and hopes to help both veteran and up-and-coming artists advance their careers by offering affordable workspace, tools, classes, workshops and public exposure.

The Holiday Market is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. For more examples of items for sale and studio offerings check out their Instagram (@alterworkstudios) and website.
