    Breaking: Artish is a success!

    Monday June 24 2019 was the official opening of Artish. The event began with a presentation from the newly hired intern. She was extremely anxious when it was her time to shine, and although we admit the presentation was a bit scratchy, she tried her hardest to represent Artish in the best way possible. Since opening day, Artish has received donations ($21.64) towards setting up costs! We have received requests from 2 local artists who would like to be featured and help our team out.

    Dirt, Fire, Water, and Social Media?

    For my last blog post, I shared my knowledge and admiration for Russel Powell. Russel is an artist who has created ‘hand-stamping’ as a way of putting together his art work. Another unique artist I would like to look at is Dino Tomic. Dino is a very talented artist, tattoo artist by trade, who lives in Croatia and was born in Norway.
