Art pick: Skinner/Howard Contemporary Art hosts a pop-up shop
Gwenna Howard admits it: “We’re taking a risk here.” Instead of the usual art show for the month of May, her Skinner/Howard Contemporary Art gallery will be hosting a “pop-up shop.” For those who attended the Sellout Buyout events (RIP), the idea is similar. Howard wrote: “We have selected many different vendors, artists [and] jewelers who drop off their wares and the organizing group will merchandise it and set up the whole gallery as a store.” In addition to art, there will be clothing, jewelry, furniture and home accessories for sale. And Howard is hopeful that if the pop-up is a success, she’d like to invite “more indie designers and give them an outlet once in a while.”
The shop pops up on Saturday and Sunday, May 12-13; and Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20. There’s also a preview on Friday, May, 11, with food trucks standing by to round it off.
