Saint Paint Arts and Apparel Grand (Re) Opening

Inside Saint Paint
Saint Paint Arts and Apparel has moved next door to where it used to be. It was in a very small space, but now it seems twice as large. Derek Donnelly, artist and owner of Saint Paint, exhibits his own work and that of many others. It is an eclectic roster of renowned talents in the city, including Jenipher Chandley, Scott Hillis, Reid Jenkins, Christian Thomas, Clint Thomas, Wade Slater, Stoic, and many others.

Gone is the chain link that was on the walls in the old space, and there is now room to breathe. Derek also makes and sells T-shirts designed by some of these artists and others, indie items that are light-years away from the usual generic corporate stuff.

On opening night, Derek called in several of his friends to spray paint his car. This was a spirited, creative street art moment.
