A few months ago, I received an email from Jim Button introducing me to Rich Théroux and Jess Szabo. Two love-birds, turned teachers, turned community builders, who started a live art space that welcomed all to come create, converse, and live auction their artwork every Wednesday. Rumble House is just that place and one that Jim Button got the privilege of participating in last year.
It's interactions like these that form these fun collaborations. One of Village Brewery's main goals since the beginning of this beer journey was to support those spaces that elevate arts, culture and community. This collaboration was definitely one of those. Besides giving some exposure to this cute unassuming art junction, we created this traveling gallery together in hopes to spread the inspiration and creativity that Rich and Jess exude in their day to day, further. With the kind support of Pattison this small idea became a reality!
In addition, some of the artists you will see showcased on these train panels will also be included in a show in the Village taproom gallery in October/November for a RumbleVillage art show! We're always amazed by the social power of beer and it's ability to bring people together and showcase our vibrant community that much further! It takes a Village after all!
