ArtRageUs is now closed. It existed from July 2015 to December 2019.
ArtRageUs is a unique fun store featuring creative endeavors from the talented Brattleboro community -- hand-made fine art and crafts, interesting books, and intriguing CDs and instruments -- all by local folks!
We are an arts collective with no employees, which enables 80% of our sales to go back to the creators! It is home to Write Action, and the figurative furniture of Gayle Marie Weitz, who manages the collective and owns the store with her partner, Nick Biddle. ArtRageUs provides a low-cost opportunity for area folks to sell their creative works in our downtown Brattleboro store as well as online. (New members are always welcome to apply!)
Our Online Store is in its early stages, so please check back for new developments, and pardon us as we work through these changes. Much thanks.
Our goal is to provide quality handmade goods to the public and income to their creators while keeping the collective sustainable. To remain sustainable, members pay an annual fee ($24-48) and a commission (10-40%) to the collective. Members may reduce the commission by volunteering their time.
