Save Wallcotts, Your Local Art Store!

by Joe McDonald on January 24, 2014

Wallcotts-Home-3

One of my favorite movies, albeit one of those cheesy teen-angst films, was Empire Records. Released in 1995, Empire Records is about a group of coming-of-age, eccentric record store employees who devise a plan to save their beloved independent record store. What does all this have to do with art you ask?

Nestled in the heart of Shorline, WA is a new little locally owned and operated community gift & art store called Wallcotts Décor & More. Louise, the owner of Wallcotts, opened the gift store in September, 2013 with six art enthusiasts, passionate about collaborating with local art talent and connecting artists with the local community. In addition to selling the work of local artists, Wallcotts encourages learning through art workshops and art "parties".

But much like Empire Records, this little independent art shop needs your help. We here at SeattleArtists.com are completely dedicated to supporting the local neighborhood art scene in every shape and form, so we’re happy to pass on and share this information. Wallcotts has started a fundraising campaign to raise money to support their operations. "Wallcotts Builds A Mosaic" is both an online crowdsourcing campaign on Indiegogo as well as a "Meet the Artist" fundraiser event to be held on Sunday February 16th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

They are looking for both supporters to contribute to their Indiegogo fundraising campaign, as well as artists to be a part of an auction at the event. "We created this campaign and event to reach out to the art supporters and enthusiast to contribute to a dream that can enrich a community."  The event will have several artist stationed with their work on display throughout our store, available to speak about their work as well as sell to interested buyers. This event will be open to the public. We will also be conducting a silent auction which will of course include local art pieces as well as donations by local companies in the area. The donations collected from the auction will go towards keeping our dream alive and our doors open.

You can support Wallcotts’ Indiegogo campaign by visiting: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wallcotts-builds-a-mosaic

The "Meet the Artist" Fundraiser Event will be Sunday Feb. 16th 530pm-730pm. To participate or attend the February event, please contact Wallcotts directly at:
