It's been an exciting whirlwind since we opened on February 17th. We had many friendly faces stop by our shop. We sold lots of chocolate and handcut soaps. We partied with our crowdfunders and volunteers that Friday and then were on the news the next morning. You can see the news story here.
This week we had an artist mixer with about 30 local creatives, just a meet and greet. I was overwhelmed by the amount of creativity and camaraderie that night. It's refreshing to see that our arts community does want to support each other and collaborate. It'll only get better from here.
We hosted our very first class, a realistic art class focused on seeing details like an artist in the image of an eye. Here is a photo of some of the work. Michelle Weldy, the instructor, did an excellent and thorough job and will have two more realistic art classes in March.
Then, of course, we had a lot of fun on our new 3D printer by SeeMeCNC, a local company. As you can see here, it allows you to print some fun detail. And let me assure you that the blemishes in these prints were because of the file design, not the printer. Now, for your enjoyment, some beefy armed art.
We had one late addition to our space, a gallery. Now you can stop by and view some local art, as well as purchase it. The current exhibit that will run through March is "Marriage of Mathematics and Biology" by Allison Eve and Jonathan Walker.
