Shop Expands Into Tiny Artwork
The calendar is pretty standard, as holiday gifts go. But instead of the one from a big bookstore featuring “Starry Night,” why not buy a handmade calendar featuring original papercuts for just $16?
Muse, a shop in Warren known for its beautiful handcrafted jewelry and gifts, is adding affordable art to its offerings. They are kicking off the initiative this Thursday with an opening reception called the “Awesome Affordable Art Show.”
“The move to carry artwork that is at once affordable and – like the rest of MUSE’s collection – American-made with fair labor, aligns with the trend in small business economics: smaller is better for people’s wallets,” a news release states.
Muse will feature four artists known for their following on Etsy, including Nikki McClure, who made the calendars, Jill Bliss, Elly MacKay and Modern Printed Matter. Their inexpensive prints will be available both unframed and mounted.
The show coincides with the final Bristol Warren Art Night of the season, which features ceramic sculptor Ellen Blomgren and David Terro, who makes custom copper weathervanes. So come out of the chill, indulge in some spiked cider and apple fritters, and get inspired to pick up some local artwork.
Muse is located at 420 Main Street in Warren. The show runs from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, November 29.
