The Hand Wave Gallery in Meacham, population 84, sells original art by known and upcoming Saskatchewan artists who work in fiber, pottery, paint, ceramics, metal, glass, paper, and other media.
The gallery's website had always played an important role in reaching art buyers, but it didn't offer a true online store.
To build a new online shopping experience, Hand Wave Gallery owner, June Jacobs, turned to Creative Saskatchewan's Market and Export Development Grant for an investment to cover half of the development costs.
"An improved website with an online shop that allows customers to browse and purchase art will expand our marketplace and help secure a sustainable, rural retail outlet of Saskatchewan-made products," said June Jacobs, owner of Hand Wave Gallery.
Creative Saskatchewan's Market and Export Development Grant makes a wide variety of investments in Saskatchewan's creative entrepreneurs to help them reach new markets and drive higher sales.
