The pop-up shop was absolutely amazing and we could not have had a more lovely and exciting time!!  It was so great being able to connect artists with the surrounding community (we ❤ Ukrainian Village).

We have some exciting news too– WE’RE OPENING UP A PERMANENT ART GALLERY SHOP! The new space, Paperish Mess, will be comprised of a retail space showcasing original artwork in a variety of mediums and styles, as well as handmade goods and wares by independent artists.   The new space will also be host to featured art exhibits, installations, and community centered events.  We aim to create a place where those coming through our front doors, whether they be a local resident,  a creative mind, or an independent artist can intertwine with one another. We’re so psyched to bringing this to our neighborhood and we hope that you’ll want to be a part of it with us too.

If you are an artist (or have an artist friend!) then please do get in touch– we’re opening up the shop in November, so feel free to shoot us an email at paperishmessart@gmail.com with a brief artist bio/description of your artwork or handmade items, a link to your website (if you have one) and/or a selection of JPEG images.

Thank you so much!!  We’ll be in touch soon!

  1. Lindsay told me about the shop! I passed it on the way to baby swim classes on Friday and saw your sign in the window. Congrats and good luck! – Eliina
