Sure, Con Artist Collective boasts a gallery and work area. But it's the community aspect of the space that Director Oscar Brown champions. "[Members] can expect a very welcoming and uplifting experience," he says "We make it a point to try and . . . connect them with another person in their field so they have a chance to collaborate." At the collective, creatives come together to make art, put on group shows, and enjoy social events. Artists can indulge creative impulses of any kind with an arsenal of tools, from a four-color silk screen press to power washers and Apple computers. Members can also sell their wares through the collective's website, gallery, and storefront. Click here to view Con Artist Collective's press page.
