What is Instant ARTSHOP?

artshoplogo250Instant ARTSHOP is all about bringing contemporary art to everyday people. We do this by setting up an on-the-spot shop in a variety of locations around North America. ARTSHOP sells small art products and ephemera at accessible prices. Instant ARTSHOP is also an opportunity for us to network with local artists and converse about making accessible contemporary art either with us or independently. We are all about finding ways of making contemporary art accessible to the broadest possible audience. We want people to buy art, own art, live with art in their home. We also want artists to join us, to break out of the gallery model and sell art to people where they live work and play.
