On December 14th Derek Donnelly will be having his first official one man show in 13 years. This exhibit will visualy showcase Donnelly's amazing journey of becoming an artist (again) over the past 3 years in beautiful DOWNTOWN St. Pete. Dont miss this one man show of the season!

A little over 2 years ago we rented a warehouse almost by accident. One day, we looked at each other and said, "we should have a show." Not too long after that, we looked around the front room and jokingly referred to it as an art gallery. Since then we have had literally hundreds of shows, over a dozen art gallery openings, dozens of Free Skool classes, exhibited visual work by nearly 100 different artists and hosted musicians from as Japan, Hungary, Switzerland, France, Mexico and all over the United States. Somehow, we're still here, still kicking ass and getting ready to begin our third year with tons of new programming, theater, free education and general weirdness. Come celebrate our tenacity (and stupidity) with us. We love you.
