We got a ton of exciting things lined up in the next month. People are getting more and more into these that there’s been some super exciting additions. I’ve added most of these to the original blog post, but I thought I would also round them up into a list of awesome news:

1. Ah! La Lettre is gonna be performing for Jessica Bartram‘s Fascinatingly-Carnivalesque opening reception tonight! The Movement Fam and Hellaluya are now joining the lineup for our RENT PARTY as well!!!!!!!!!!

2.Remember how I said Broken Pencil is giving us a year subscription to give away at the RENT PARTY? Well, now we got WORN Fashion Journal and Momentum Magazine to donate some raffle prizes too. A gift pack from WORN and a two-year subscription from Momentum!

3. We got some interweb lovin all over!!! Here’s Plaid Magazine’s Pick of the Week, Broken Pencil shows support, and then there’s a shout-out from The Varsity.

4. We got a ton of awesome people who want to participate in our Paperback Nobodies No More. And with these interests, quite a few questions have been raised. Questions so good, I never thought of them originally, haha! I will be sharing these questions and their answers in a blogpost soon time.

5. Follow Jessica Bartram’s updates on her super hard work to put together the Farther’s Fascinating Freaks exhibition here!

A massive friggin’ THANK YOU to everyone who made these happen!

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.

The response for the current group show has been so great that we decided to extend it for another week. Hopefully more of you will get a chance to see it!

With this note, we are now able to extend the deadline for the silkscreen print call for entries. The new deadline is Aug 12th, but no promises that there are going to be spots left if you wait till the last minute… E-mail us some jpegs already!

You’re welcome.

Our June exhibition opening was a huge success and we thank everyone for coming out to celebrate the work of Gillian Goerz and Wilfred Wong. On June 17th, Freedom quickly filled up with excited supporters of the two emerging artists. Refreshments, laughs, and live music by The Owle Bird, were thoroughly enjoyed. You can check out their works at Freedom until July 11th.

Thank you for your continuing support!
