Nothing really happens before its time and I think its time. I am grateful to the artist creators makers and customers who are into this experiment with me. I have uncovered the secrets of marketing using the technology of social media. I have and am meeting very cool artists and neighbours who are drawn to the wide open entrance and last but not least going out to look for more artists at art happenings in the “6”, the TDOT , Hogtown or whatever moniker you have Toronto these days.
Finally the garage door is up and I am pretty excited to have Erin of Twisted Metal In Motion Sau Fann of Quilty Treasure Claire from Eyze in the gallery with me. I am for thankful their participation and allowing me to curate the space to incorporate the old wood theme and create the esthetic for the pop up.
As part of creating the visuals of the space I have been slowly but surely building a following on Instagram as the @collaboration curator. Marketers call it building content. Essentially using the preparation, happenings and sales in the gallery build and share the story we are creating.
It was pretty quiet in Corktown when we opened July 1st , it was the weekend of Pride and the TD Jazz Festival. As I had hoped and suspected the foot traffic has returned to Queen Street East, couples with babies in strollers, family visiting neighbours, couples of sorts, and artists o plenty.
So make your over on July 16th between 6-10p, for our night shop edition The merchandise ranges between $$- $$$.
See you soon
