Living Sky Foundation Presents the SPERRYVILLE ARTIST COOPERATIVE in the River District ~ A music and art showcase for new, emerging and independent talent. “We assist artists, musicians, dancers, poets, actors and craftsman in the process of establishing their creative expression so they may freely support themselves as they boldly go towards direction of their dreams. Not that there is anything wrong with the starving artist syndrome, we know that inspiration is feed by circumstance, but our motto is ENJOY THIS LIFETIME.” The ARTist Cooperative is now home to a group of aspiring and brilliant artists who have found a center where they can exhibit and share their talents and includes experimental, innovative and un-censored art that stretches the boundaries of what is considered traditional, judged or status quo in the “art world”.
