Red for February 14 by Dix Cutler
Refresh and Renew by Kathy Lindemer
The idea for this team began back in June 2009 as a way to give artists selling their work on Etsy a place to come together online, as people do in small communities all around the world. Many small art communities have a live First Friday, Second Saturday, or similar event where galleries and shops host an opening, sometimes with wine and light food, to celebrate the opening of a new line of work by an artist or group of artists.

As technology changes, our team is using the tools given to us through Etsy, and social media to help promote this event and each others work through social media. The Arts and Artists can use your help to also promote this event and our work if you are able.

Please click on through to our February 2015 Event Thread and see if there is anything that strikes you fancy!
You can always shop by scrolling our Members Shops Page here on our blog.

If you are an artist selling your work on Etsy.com, you should consider joining our team and help promote this event and your work!
