Happy Parking Lot


Here is a photo of some artwork on the side of a building on our street. It was noticed by a client and we really enjoy the minimalism and message it brings across. Have a happy day :0)!

Art Conspiracy 5


Nothing like a charity event to get you in the holiday spirit/ finish your holiday shopping! Last night at a warehouse off of W. Commerce St. local artists, musicians, volunteers, and art appreciators gathered to donate some money and walk away with some amazing artwork! The proceeds went to Resolana, which is:
"a community based nonprofit organization that provides holistic, gender-sensitive, rehabilitative programming for incarcerated women".
The night consisted of live music, live auctions, and beer drinking, in an unheated, but very lively space! If you didn't get a chance to go/participate this year, I certainly suggest you check it out for next year!
All of the artwork was created at the warehouse the day before the event. Such amazing work! So happy I could be there to see it!

The Space/ Erykah Badu






















Hi Everyone!

This past we weekend we had the pleasure of helping out with an event at The Space to raise money for the community center. We also had the pleasure of getting to meet Ms. Erykah Badu!!! She was at the event creating two live paintings that were later auctioned off. She also autographed one of our artist's, Debbie Klein's, pieces titled, Tacos. Tacos is part of a series and for the next month we will be donating 25% of the sales of these pieces to The Space. We still have the autographed one if anyone is interested! It was amazing getting to spend the evening in the presence of Ms. Badu! I listened to her music all day at the gallery to prepare for the event. Come by and see the signed piece!




Ps. I apologize for the photos being a little blurry. They had Erykah moving around so much that it was hard to get a clear photo. I will update this with clearer photos in a few days once I receive them from the photographer!
