Happy One Year Anniversary to The Shoe Factory Art Co-op!

This month we celebrate our one year anniversary with our tenth art show!  Our November exhibit, "Once Upon a Coffee Table: Fine Art Furnishings", starts tonight at our opening reception from 5-9pm!  One year ago, on the same First Friday, we had our premiere namesake art exhibit "Boots and Shoes: Variations on a Theme"!

Including our current show, so far we've had ten art exhibits made up of 7 call for artist shows and 3 artist solo shows.  We've shown 221 different artists, the vast majority of them local!  

Many artists have been in more than one of our shows!  Many have shown twice and about ten artists have been in 3-5 of our exhibits.  Winners this year of being in the most Shoe Factory shows are Colleen Virdi (seven shows), Scott Lamont (six), and Mollie Wolf (six)!

We will continue on our journey promoting local artists and providing opportunities for artists to exhibit and sell their work in Rochester's Neighborhood of the Arts!

It's been a lot of hard work, but the best part has always been meeting a ton of really creative people in our community!  Onward to the next year of art!

Our first exhibit November 2010
