The Art Shoppe at the Midtown Global Market
I have recently become a co-owner of a very cool store called “The Art Shoppe”. The Art Shoppe is basically a consignment shop for artists. Right now we have 90 Minnesota artists that sell their work in our store which is located in the Midtown Global Market on Lake Street (the old Sears building).
Several of our artists have endured life-challenges and/or health issues. We were started by the non-profit “A Minnesota Without Poverty” to help give artists a viable place to sell their wares while gaining marketing skills. Now, three years later, we donate 5% of our proceeds back to “A Minnesota Without Poverty”.
In March, 2015 I will be the “Wall Artist” which means I get to hang my art up on an entire wall in the shop. There will be a “Meet The Artist” event for me on March 19th from 5:30 to 7pm which is open to the public. I will be talking about why I paint places and make “squiggly-squirrelly” lines and fielding your questions. I hope you can come! Finger foods will be provided.
Even if you can’t come to the “Meet the Artist” event, please stop in and support The Art Shoppe if you are in need of a card, a gift, or ART. 90 artists on a mission to end poverty is a great thing to support. 🙂
