Art Gallery Build

#1
Hey Guys, I'm going to post my progress here as the gallery comes together. Here's some of the details so far.

Name:

KJ customs Beer and Art Gallery

Located 5 mins south on calgary city limits in the little country town of Dewinton, attached to a general store with access to a variety of liquor. Sit down have a beer and check out some metal art from talented local artists from southern Alberta.

I will have a website to purchase items from the gallery and will have a side inventory that will be travelling around to different tradeshows and farmers markets.

I have 6 comitted artists to supply inventory with various metal working skills.

As inventory gets low I will always be on the look out for other unique pieces to add to the gallery.

Here's the location image.jpeg the general store, liquor is on the other side image.jpeg the future entrance to the gallery image.jpeg 3 booths to sit back and have a few image.jpeg the other side of the gallery image.jpeg

Awesome Kris. There is this young kid on Kijiji sometimes who makes creatures out of utensils - get him in there.

Oh, I thought you were just decorating a gallery, not opening one! Very cool idea being able to have a pop and see cool fab work. Keep us updated, can't wait to see what you do with it!

thanks, it's going to start as a private residence so I don't have to have a license to serve alcohol, it will technically be BYOB with the liquor store being where you buy it from. Being away from the city the rules are a little more slack

I agree completely.

Looks great @Kris Jensen

Keep the pictures coming as you get the gallery ready to go! I look forward to coming by to check it all out.

Nice work Kris! How exactly did you start selling your work? I've come to the point where I'm begining to think I could do fairly well as an artistic blacksmith. My family and my friends all suggest that I take that on as a side job, when so many people seem to be interested in having me design something for them after seeing what I have already built.
Only I don't have any networking or marketing experience.
