The Art Shoppe story — in brief.
The Art Shoppe is artist-owned and managed, and it has been in its current Global Market space for 5-1/2 years. We have six owners and 90 to 100 consignors. Each of our artists is from Minnesota, and all of our art is made in Minnesota.
The Art Shoppe’s mission is to provide a viable business place for Minnesota artists to display and sell their work, to gain business and marketing skills, and to mentor and empower one another to increase artists’ exposure and income.
We promote opportunities for artists who represent a diverse community and have experienced poverty and/or unique life challenges.
