#WhereIsRa?: 101 Threads Grand Opening

Welcome to my blog! Today I will be talking about the opening of the 101 Threads Gallery. 

Yesterday was the grand opening of 101 Art Threads in New Haven. The basic concept is artists sign up for $50 a month and get gallery representation in this dynamic space. Founder and artist, Brian Monahan brings artists together with their potential buyers. I was the first signup for 101 Threads and was in attendance last night to paint on location. 

I love group art shows because it’s a collective of energy and ideas. It can be daunting to curate and plan your own art show so this way it’s more liberating. I enjoy curating but sometimes it’s nice to just provide the artwork and the leave the rest in someone’s capable hands. Mayor Toni Harp was also in attendance for the ribbon cutting. 101 Threads is located on 118 Court St in New Haven. For more information visit the website. http://101threads.com
