Welcome to the Art Shoppe!

Welcome to the Art Shoppe!

We are a group of Minnesota artists who have gathered to present original and unique art in one of the most exciting sites in Minneapolis, The Midtown Global Market.

Located at 920 East Lake Street, the Market is a great place to shop, to eat, and to buy art.

The Art Shoppe has six artist-owners and 90 Minnesota artist consignors whose work is original, unique, and all made in Minnesota.

We will use this blog to introduce you to our artists and their work, and to art topics of general interest.  Join us in the Art Shoppe (7 days a week). Some of our artists have links to their websites. Have patience as we introduce e-commerce into The Art Shoppe retail mix.
