WHAT IS THE SWAP SHOP?
The Global Fashion Exchange and The Canvas have partnered to develop the first brick and mortar Swap Shop in NYC. The idea is simple, drop your clothes off to receive points that can be redeemed at the Swap Shop at The Canvas any time. With a constant stream of fantastic fashions coming in every week in partnership with Goodwill NYNJ the swapping never stops!
*Please Note: If temperatures are below freezing access to the Swap Shop is by the side door
CULTURE + LEARNING
The Swap Shop creates cultural events and educates through art, music, + fashion using the US Sustainable Development Goals as our guide. Check out the action below!
Helen kohnke Eco Art Feb 8th
Independent curator and art advisor Maria Vogel will present work by artist Helen Kohnke, whose work is in dialogue with the natural world. In Helen's own words, "In a world of constant artificial stimulation, I find it increasingly important to seek out nature's unnoticed. From the vibrant colors of a decaying leaf, the seemingly simple shape of a small rock, there's a subtle yet powerful essence in our natural surroundings that I fear we are loosing and that I want to hold on to."
A body of Helen's paintings and works on paper will be on view in The Canvas beginning February 1st. A public reception will be held on Friday, February 8th.
