A few weeks ago I posted about a new marketplace called Pool that is being opened in Mesa, AZ. Well, Pool is offering a contest for merchants and the winner receives one year of free rent in the space. I applied to open an Art Jewelry Gallery, called Curio Gallery. Curio Gallery will feature handmade innovative studio art jewelry made by both local and national artists. Artists represented work in a range of media and materials. Exhibitions will be changing, with different work featured each month. I am so excited at the prospect of bringing a venue like this to the Phoenix area. There is not a single art jewelry gallery in the entire metropolitan area. The closest are two hours away in Tucson. Anyway, Pool is allowing the public to vote for their favorite contestants, so I am asking for each and all of your votes! Please head on over to the Pool website and vote for me, entry #11 "Curio Gallery". Voting closes July 11th. Thank you!
