Description: Over 60 artists confirmed to make art for The Store, will be open from June 3-28, 2009 on Wednesdays through Sundays from Noon-7pm. Opening Party is on First Friday, June 5th from 6-10pm.
John Brodie, the Proprietor explains: Loosely based on Claes Oldenburg’s “Store” from 1961, Store for a Month will be a temporary art object and “product” store that includes a working studio for the Proprietor and Store artists to make works on-site, although many works will be made in advance. Store for a Month will feature art and products made specifically for the project by over 60 of the NW region’s best and brightest artists. While the emphasis is on 3D art objects and sculpture, some 2D work will be included. Artists have been encouraged to make works they might not usually make, explore new mediums outside their traditional process, and create works of an unusual or outrageous nature – all priced for the “Store” environment.
