How do you find the artists that you feature in the gallery? Are they local? Do you bring them froM out of state?
It’s a mix. It’s mostly Midwest because we found it was difficult to get artists from farther away with shipping costs and everything involved. We wanted to keep are overhead as low as possible. So it’s mostly local. And we either have submissions where people will come in and show us their art or direct us to a website, or we know artists that we like already and invite them.
What kind of art are you looking for? What kind of art “fits”?
It’s kind of like a new-school art style. Very street based with graffiti and stuff like that. Mostly character design again, some pop elements from time to time. Somewhere in that whole jumble of categories. I don’t even know what to call it. [Laughs]
