Since opening Likely General Gallery in the back of the shop in late 2013, we've had 30+ artists and vendors utilize the space. The gallery presents new work once a month and openings are typically the first Thursday of every month. We strive to be an open and inclusive space for up-and-coming artists to experiment with solo or collaborative shows. The gallery is fully booked until September 2017, but please don't hesitate to contact us with a proposal.

PERENNIAL | SARAH CANNON | LIKELY GENERAL GALLERY
JAN 3rd - Feb 7th, RECEPTION JAN. 5th, 6-9
Perennial is an exercise in self-care. Through the process of painting, Cannon develops characters to reflect on and respond to her own personal experiences with society’s imposed gender stereotypes, female internalized misogyny and subsequent expressive suppression. Cannon identifies self-imposed solitary confinement, emotional distancing and isolation as significant side-effects of female expressive suppression; we are provided a glimpse of lone female archetypes and quiet moments alone.
Perennials are the ubiquitous form of plant life we refuse to accept. We trim them down, cut them back. Under-appreciated, undervalued, resilient and determined. Albeit limp and fragile; they bloom between the cracks.
