Made in Warren Artist Cooperative
by: RYAN CALDARONE
Art sales are tax free in Rhode Island. Period. Now that's pretty cool! Growing your own private art collection aside, this is a great thing for the art community in the state. Tax Free art sales, and Rhode Island's small state neighborhood culture come together in a big way. The Made in Warren Artist Cooperative is just that-- a place for local artists to join in a cooperative community, and showcase their work in a fantastic downtown Warren storefront. The Co-Op has just under 50 local artists and artisans who promote and sell their handcrafted items, fine art paintings, pottery, sculpture, and even furniture!
The Made in Warren shop is in a great location on Main Street, even on a casual stroll you won't miss it. We were lucky enough to be able to film a bit on the grand opening (Thanks Jade!), and everyone seemed to be having a great time catching up and socializing. Being able to share in the appreciation of these hand crafted pieces with others in a cozy environment is definitely a unique experience that adds another fun day-destination to Rhode Island's East Bay.
If you're looking for a great functional piece of furniture that's handcrafted by local artisans, or a great hanging for your office wall, stop by the Made In Warren Artist Cooperative. You can find them on facebook.com/madeinwarren :D
