A New Year, New Projects!

We're very excited about our upcoming collaborative project! We have partnered with Hennepin County Library's Northeast Library to create the Northeast Life Size Book project. We will be hosting a series of four workshops in September in which a local book/paper artist will facilitate creation of the content and artwork of a large format, handmade book.

As usual, ArtShare will be assuring that the workshops are free, fun, and open for everyone in the NE community. We do incur costs in our work so we will be hosting a Fundraiser on Sunday, June 24th at Grumpy's NE. There will be live music, loads of good food (and beer), and a silent auction with some great, local prizes. We will post a list of the bands and other details in the near future.

On a sadder note, we are joining many others in mourning the recent loss of Tom Taylor - neighborhood activist, NE fixture, cook, mushroom forager, father, long-time supporter of ArtShare, and so very much more. Raise less corn and more hell!
