Here only for the month of September, the Made by Hand Pop-Up Store, features an exciting range of local, independent artists whose businesses were adversely affected by Covid-19.
Before the pandemic, independent artists primarily met with buyers and collectors at the contemporary art festivals and shows nationwide, where they were able to sell their art directly and connect with many other artists. Now with large gatherings and festivals canceled for the foreseeable future, these artists are struggling to find a market for their work. The Made by Hand Pop-Up Store aims to support and showcase these artists by offering them a temporary storefront, observing safe social-distancing protocols, where buyers can discover their work within a thoughtfully curated collection that promotes aesthetic values rooted in social justice, repurposing of materials and handmade processes.
In these frustrating, confusing, and unnerving times, we need independent artists to help us to envision a brighter future and heal society. Simultaneously, these artists need our support and patronage more than ever.
Our Pop-Up Store is artfully curated to offer unique wearable arts, jewelry, and home goods designed and made by independent artists. The Made by Hand Pop-Up Store will be open in 508 Main Street, Beacon, NY, between September 4 and 27, 2020, from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm every day.
We are proud to help support these local artists, and pleased to share their unique and lovely creations with you!
