Resembling an art crawl, yet between small and medium sized arts venues in our community, Little Falls.
Small but Noteworthy was conceived by local artist Heidi Jeub after she settled in her small Quonset Hut studio in Little Falls. Her space was small, and awkward, but she wanted to invite her audience of talented artists, patrons, and friends to enjoy the space. Knowing the small restrictions of her space, she included her neighbor, Tony's 1st Avenue Custom Framing and Furniture Restoration, who also features local artists. She did not stop there: she invited the long-time, artist-supporting restaurant, Zoomski's Midtown Cafe, and the local arts organization, Great River Arts, to participate. The four venues allowed for a "reason to come" for regional visitors. The event included a Friday-night reception at all four locations, a Saturday art crawl, a poetry open mic, and a spoken word event. All festivities were concluded (and evaluated) over coffee and scones at Zoomski's, with the final conclusion being: "Let's do this again."
Those are the dates for the next Small but Noteworthy! We have exciting plans to make it bigger and better!

A SINGLE SPARK OF STORY CAN IGNITE AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY
Story is humanity's connective tissue. It preserves and it foretells. It galvanizes. It empowers. And it prevails.
Cream City Tattoo offers a very unique layout to our clients. As soon as you walk down our stairs you'll realize that this is not an ordinary tattoo shop. Cream City Tattoo is a full on art studio with client comfort in mind. Each artist has their own room in which they personalize with much of their own visual art works.
Visual Artists are invited to submit artwork 9x9" or smaller. This can be any shape (rectangle, triangle, organic), but just within that size. 3D work is also welcome (9x9x9").
To be best represented, the artist is either encouraged to scan their artwork (or send files to heijeu) so that the work can be posted online for sale. The studio can do this scanning for you for an additional fee of $3 per piece.
To help with marketing costs, all artists are invited to donate $20-50 for promotion. This is not required to participate. Artists are also given the opportunity (heijeu only) to choose commission rates.
To make the Small But Noteworthy a multi-disciplinary event, poetry and spoken word is the other component of this event. There will be a Poetry Open Mic, where artists can perform or read their work, as well as opportunities to sell Zines, Chatbooks, and other products related to their work.
Contact Jonathon Wichmann, at email@example.com if you'd like to participate!
In order to make this event a success, there will be two workshops for artists and business owners in September, 2018. "How to Support your Business with Artists" and "Social Media" will be part of an effort to look at mission driven marketing and community collaboration.
