In 2013 I started a pop-up shop called Gathering in my little home town and in 2014 that pop-up became a brick and mortar in downtown Bloomington featuring the work of nearly 200 artists from all around the US. Now Conduit Press studio is located in the back quarter of the Gather shoppe and we're always creating new work and discovering new artists.
