New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
Open Shoppe is an online gallery that features innovative art. Its unique collection includes sculpture, drawings and paintings, jewelry, poetry books, CDs, photography and wearable art.
The online art gallery Open Shoppe features artists of various disciplines, bringing inspiration to everyday life. The door is open to everyone in all countries; to artists in various genres and to art lovers in all life styles and generations. Open Shoppe's mission is to spread creative ideas and positive energy through the arts because it is the key to positive thinking and helps to promote lively communities.
Open Shoppe is conceived and created by New York City resident and musician, Saco Yasuma whose dream is to establish a multi-discipline institution that would be an art wonderland in the New York City area. The profit from this online multi-discipline gallery will fund the space for this project. Open Shoppe's activities are reciprocal; as many artists gain exposure, it involves and inspires the wider community. If you are an artist or performer, and this idea resonates with you, please Contact Us. And of course, we'd love to hear any feedback and opinions about this site or the works in this site.
