The Art n Soul business model is quite unique in the art world. Not only is the gallery more of a “boutique” or “gift shop”, it is also founded on the philosophy of giving back. First, we give back to local artists by bringing their pieces into the gallery to help them gain more recognition and sell their hand-crafted pieces or traditional artwork. Then, after the artists are paid and all the bills are paid, we donate 100% of the profits to local non-profits. Yes, 100%!
When you make a purchase at Art n Soul on 101, you not only own a piece of local art, not only supporting the local economy, but you are also giving back to local causes right in your own community.
Since opening its doors in August of 2007, Art n Soul has contributed tens of thousands of dollars to deserving local charities such as the one’s listed below in alphabetical order. Every 2 years, we select new beneficiaries near and dear to us, our customers and our community.
So, when you shop, shop with heart at Art n Soul on 101!
