“Annette was living upstairs in a temporary sublet and saw the storefront space first. She got in touch with Munro, Pat and Paul. Inside, the walls were covered with wood veneer, the floor with linoleum and the ceiling had been dropped down and filled in with panels of particle board. We started planning the gallery. We talked to friends and decided to have the first show in the raw storefront space before beginning renovation, a show of art in multiples. Other artists offered to help and loaned us their time and tools. Munro asked Halsey Rodman to collaborate on the design and construction of a display cabinet for the artworks using left-over building materials we took out of the back apartment, storage area and walls. The cabinet evolved into an artwork. Artists, musicians, designers, printers, book-makers loaned us their work for the first show…” (via AT World)
In addition, on Thursday nights through the beginning of October, Soloway will feature a film program in their backyard. The full film schedule is available at their Facebook Wall, and details of artist-curated programming will be rolling out in the coming weeks.
