Tarnish&Gold registered with the State of MN as a non-profit corporation. Business planning and preparation was well underway; led by three mission-driven partners, Caitlin LaFlash, Greta Seiffert, and Carly Baker.
Tarnish&Gold opens on Marshall St NE! In its first year, Tarnish&Gold hosted 17 unique art exhibitions, featuring over 170 artists.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Tarnish&Gold leaves its first home on Marshall St NE. While gallery staff search for a new home, Tarnish&Gold continues to support and drive the local arts community with various events and sponsorships (No Hard Feelings [May 2011], Red Hot Arts Festival [Aug 2011], local artists featured at the Nomad [May-Oct 2011]).
Tarnish&Gold re-opens in The Foundry Building. Located on 13th Avenue NE, in the heart of the Minneapolis Arts District, The Foundry Building offers the Twin Cities Community-oriented business in a collaborative space.
Tarnish&Gold is looking forward to celebrating its third birthday during Art-A-Whirl, 2012! Now settled in The Foundry Building alongside three other local, women-run businesses, Tarnish&Gold expands to encompass new programs and initiatives to further its mission.
