One year ago, a group artists pooled together their creative efforts towards the mission of starting an artists cooperative. After a few brainstorming sessions, we opened our first show as an art collective on October 9, 2011. With many friends and family supporting our efforts, the Ghost Story reception was a success. 

Since that October in 2011, The Collective has hosted numerous successful exhibits and workshops at Art Hotel. The events have all been free and open to the public, as part of The Collective's ambition has always been to inspire the community's participation and appreciation of the arts. A year doesn't sound like a very long time. And as time tends to do, it has flown by as the co-op group finds itself smack dab in mid-October, only this time in 2012.

As with any thing  that requires 'team' effort, The Collective events require all hands on deck to make an exhibit 'happen'. It is a lot of work to keep something moving forward for one full year!  Thank YOU for helping us make it happen.  We hope you will join us at our one year ARTiversary as we celebrate with The Open Show reception on Sunday, October 21, from 6-8pm.
