Freedom is not just a clothing store or a gallery. We have always envisioned it to grow into a hub for creative energy; a place where local artists, designers, musicians and supporters of the arts can come together. And not just to buy and/or sell – but to communicate, collaborate, inspire each other and create an organic and supportive community.

Join us for our fundraiser party! Help us to offer you more in our program of events, exhibitions and workshops. But most of all, let’s get to know each other and start the collaboration! Who knows what special things this could possibly lead to…

Of course, there will be awesome live music and a ton of dancing to spark some initial inspiration….the rest is up to all of us!

Invite design and illustration by ila & nika, our resident illustrators.

PAPERBACK NOBODIES NO MORE is a benefit exhibition and silent auction of art works made from old paperbacks. The concept of the show is to fight against the transient quality of books by elevating the status and value of these neglected novels into those of art.

Each artist can receive either a full paperback or select pages from the book. You are expected to create something using it by decorating, embellishing, painting on, painting in, adding to, subtracting from, or by any means you see fit.

Interested in participating? These are the dates to remember:

November 1: Registration is open and books are available to pick up
November 30: Drop off your finished books or pages ready to hang
December 10: Opening Reception! Silent auction goes on from 1 pm – 2 am.
December 11: Remaining works are exhibited, books are available for sale on the spot at a fixed price for as long as quantities last.

Register by e-mailing arts.freedomcc@gmail.com.
