Artist Co-op Celebrating Anniversary

(WINDSOR, ON) – The Walkerville Artists’ Co-op in Old Walkerville is turning one. Celebrate the first year of operation and join in on an evening of festivities Saturday, March 14 from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm.

The co-op is home to 38 local, creative artists and authors. The store can be found at 1974 Wyandotte Street East, just down from Devonshire Road. It is a gallery and retail space, which offers pottery, photography, paintings, sculpture, wood turning, fabric arts, and jewellery for the public to purchase, six days a week.

“We run our business as a co-op with each artist taking a turn running the shop, making sure a visitor always has access to one of the artists”, said Chris Ford, founding member. “A co-op is the strongest form of running an arts business. It’s very empowering and collaborative.”

The Walkerville Artists Co-op is open Tuesday though Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm and Sundays from noon to 4:00 pm.

The one year anniversary will feature live music while you browse and meet the artists who make the co-op possible.
