Our first exhibition, 'Soft Opening', was located in the empty basement of a building in downtown Calgary. It was a complete success with over 300 attendees in a single weekend, and included and art sale and secrets closet. All the artists were paid for the exhibition through door donations and zine sales, and the sale of their work.
