Accent your Apartment

101 Art Threads Grand Opening and Reworx Pop-Up from InfoNewHaven on Vimeo.

101 Art Threads is a new gallery concept from business owner Brian Monahan. He's made it possible for artists to pay a membership fee into a system designed to help them succeed. That investment goes towards a web page about your art in the 101Threads.Com website, as well as a space on an actual wall in downtown New Haven, and the opportunity to provide an opening reception to the public. This is pretty helpful if you're an artist.

This month, in addition to cutting its opening ribbon, 101Threads is also hosting a Pop-Up Shop for the furniture collective Reworx (see video). Reworx is comprised of a collective of Artisans, all with unique skill sets working separately towards common goals. Their furniture is highlighted in this video.

Whether it's an art piece or a piece of furniture, you could be accenting your apartment with something amazing and special. The opportunity is yours! Hours on the door indicate that the space at 118 Court Street is ready for you at 11am on most days. Check back or read @NhvOrg Twitter for more specifics about the hours.

Mayor Harp has been handy with the scissors lately. Her seamstress background was also recently tested at the former Horowitz Bros. (756 Chapel St.) which is now home to Happiness Lab, a coffee shop which also received a grand opening a couple of weeks ago.
