artlessBastard originally opened as a pop-up space on Feb 1, 2018, but thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from our community, we quickly moved into a larger, permanent gallery by May of the same year! Our mission is to provide artists a new spot to show their work and fund their talent. Our founders are all working artists who know the struggle to support oneself in the early stages of creative pursuits and, after achieving some success of their own, want to help pay-it-forward by providing others an affordable alternative to conventional gallery space.
As of October 23rd, 2019 artlessBastard has a new owner! Alexis heard about the possible closure of the gallery and immediately knew she was meant to take it over. The gallery was the first to accept a piece of her fine art photography work and showcase it after she had been out of the state for fifteen years in Oregon. She had felt lost trying to find where she fit into the art community and artlessBastard was the breath of fresh air to let her know there was a welcoming, fun and supportive art scene developing.
Her goal is to continue having monthly gallery exhibits along with artist talks, workshops, special events and a curated selection of fine art gifts. Everyone is welcome and everyone can and should enjoy the emotions, beauty and inspiration of art. Let's keep connecting!
