I am so pleased to announce that Little Bear Illustration will be popping up for a month in the Inman Incubator, starting October 13th!
The goal is to create an enchanting gallery and retail space that feels as warm and welcoming as a happy memory. The gallery walls will be filled with both original works and a variety of high quality print reproductions, available for purchase either framed or matted. Greeting cards and holiday themed cards will be available for purchase too.
I will also be working on site and in view of the public, hand-painting one of a kind wearable art brooches and holiday themed ornaments, added for sale daily.
I've worked a lot of retail in my day but never in my very own brick and mortar--this is going to be an adventure! I hope you can visit us in Little Bear's temporary home this Fall!Located at:

About the Space:
The Inman Incubator is a 190 square foot retail storefront right in the heart of Inman Square. The community will find artists/makers popping up over the span of 4 – 6 weekends. The space will transform to suit the artist/maker that is popping up through classic retail and exhibit infrastructure. Aside from being able to shop local, handcrafted goods in one place, the Inman Incubator invites the community to meet and converse with the person behind their purchase.
Participation is free for the artists/makers selected for the Inman Incubator. This allows for experimentation, testing out products/displays/marketing while connecting with the community.
The Incubator space is provided by Commonwealth Alternative Care and powered by the East Cambridge Business Association & gather here. Made possible with the City of Cambridge's Small Business Challenge grant.
