Dear friends and supporters,
As I reflect on the incredible journey of the past 5 years with my downtown shop, I am filled with gratitude and warmth. There are so many individuals who have played a vital role in the success and vibrancy of Art Collective, and I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt thanks.
First and foremost, my deepest appreciation goes to my husband, Pete. Your unwavering support has been my anchor throughout this wild ride. To my Artner, Bette, your grace and assistance over the last 4 ½ years have been invaluable. I couldn't have done it without you.
A special thank you to all the artists, both current and past, who have contributed their incredible creations to the shop. Art Collective exists because of your talent and dedication. To our customers, you are the heartbeat of our shop. Your appreciation and support have made our creations lasting and meaningful.
The true magic happened when my mom, CL Porter, graced the shop with her presence. Her laughter and fun filled the space with light. Behind the scenes, she provided invaluable support by reading contracts and offering guidance. Losing her is a great loss, and I am immensely grateful for the wonderful mother-daughter relationship we shared. Her absence, especially the absence of her hand-painted fabric hearts, will be
Despite the challenges, our shop not only survived the pandemic but thrived. Mom was proud of what we created, and I am too. As we step into the next year, I look forward to bringing you more classes, more art, and new exciting ventures. Your continued support means the world to me.
Thank you all for being a part of this incredible journey. Here's to the next chapter!
Big hug love,Chelsea
