The store, located at 118 E. Louisiana St., previously offered clothing, jewelry and gifts, owner Mila Delfin said. The store’s concept was switched in a matter of days with the help from artists who now sell their art in the store, Delfin said.
“I wanted to move the clothes out. ... To me, this store did not make sense because we always had artists in the store,” Delfin said of the change.
The co-op-style store now features work from 34 different artists, including two artists who have on-site studios. The store also has room to include work from more artists, Delfin said.
Artists at the store have also begun hosting art classes in the space with the first class held March 18 featuring alcohol ink painting.
Future events at the store will include live painting, and Delfin is also considering updating the business’s name to reflect its offerings, she said.
